Due to these general conditions, a mobile and modular solution for construction projects in the form of modular buildings is virtually imposing. It is not surprising that modular buildings have long been used not only for temporary bridging of urgently and quickly needed living or working space, but are also the long-term solution for aesthetic and comfortable living and working. The range of applications has expanded enormously in recent years: modular buildings are used as short-term exhibition space, construction site accommodation or for disaster relief. In the same way, school buildings, kindergartens, office space, civil defense facilities, staff accommodation, student housing, residential and nursing homes, hospitals, asylum accommodation and even trendy hotels and private residences can be built in modern modular construction - and they meet all requirements in terms of function, design and quality.
Innovative modular buildings or modular system construction?
Building owners and planners are faced with the question: Which building concept offers me the greatest advantages? Modular buildings or modular construction? What are the main differences?
Modular construction: high planning costs and long prefabrication phase
In the modular construction concept, the entire steel frame structure must be assembled from numerous individual steel modules. It is the same with timber modular construction; the timber frame structure is assembled from elaborately planned and manufactured timber modules. Each individual module requires careful planning in accordance with specific requirements, such as structural requirements, room dimensions, etc. Only then is each steel module industrially prefabricated from open steel profiles. Many weeks pass before the individual modules can be transported to the construction site, because planning and prefabrication take up a lot of time in this procedure - and thus hit the budget.
Innovative modular buildings: Greater efficiency, shorter construction times, lower overall costs
The idea of innovative modular construction arose from the consideration of how construction projects for mobile room systems could be realized even more efficiently in order to meet the high cost pressure of the building owners. The answer: through standardization. With a clever basic concept, the innovative modular construction method bypasses the time-consuming planning and prefabrication phase typical of conventional modular system construction. This is because instead of designing and manufacturing the steel frame structure individually for each modular construction project, the modular construction method uses high-quality standard modules. As a result, planning effort and preparation time are extremely low, significantly reducing the overall construction time. This results in lower overall costs - due to the high degree of standardization of modular buildings, builders thus benefit from a much better price-performance ratio.
At the same time, innovative modular buildings meet all requirements for mobility and flexibility. The modular buildings can be expanded or dismantled and reused at any time. In terms of function, expandability, aesthetics, design - and quality - innovative modular buildings are also in no way inferior to conventional system modular buildings. The modules are available in different dimensions and convince with the highest international quality standards. Interior fittings and facade design can be flexibly implemented according to individual needs and wishes. The result: design-strong, high-quality buildings at affordable prices.
