How Volumetric Construction Works
Designs and plans for volumetric modular sections are agreed upon before off-site construction starts. This ensures that the logistics of the delivery and installation can be planned well in advance, and also allows for greater quality control in the factory setting.
Sections are constructed in a factory setting over a number of weeks or months but are usually able to be joined on location within a few hours. Foundations are prepared ahead of time to ensure a quick and easy installation.
Before leaving the factory, the modular sections are usually fully fitted with electrics, heating, plumbing, doors and windows so that they are fully functional and ready to be used once in place.
Construction buildings off-site in a factory setting rather than on location results in quicker turnaround times, greater product quality and reduced disruption.
Once the volumetric modules are complete, they are then transported to their final location before being connected and installed using cranes.
