Modular buildings have become a global phenomenon, the construction industry at large. The prefabrication of building elements is viewed as a cost-effective and convenient solution, and has revolutionized the way construction companies conduct operations. What is modular construction and why is it so popular? Let’s take a closer look.
Understanding Modular Construction
Modular construction is a process in which large sections of a building are assembled or built off-site. The construction process is done under controlled conditions and makes use of the same building codes and standards, but is completed in nearly half the time as a typical construction project. Think of modular construction as a process conducted in an indoor manufacturing facility where various different components of a building are created, assembled, and installed. The prefabricated buildings or building components are then transferred to the relevant sites.
So, what are the benefits of modular construction? Well, apart from the fact that it saves time and increases efficiency, it also:
Modular construction is a cost-effective process. It lowers the cost of skilled labor and offers flexible payment options that complement the shortened construction period. The process typically includes building design as well, eliminating additional architecture costs and expenses.
Uses Durable Materials
Modular buildings are typically constructed with materials that are designed to last a long while. This ensures that modular buildings can stand their ground for several years without bearing structural damages. The materials used for construction help improve sound insulation and fire-proofing as well, making the end products (buildings) more durable.
Modular construction helps reduce the amount of waste generated after each project. The indoor manufacturing process tends to maximize recycling and makes use of recyclable materials for the construction of various different building components.
This makes modular construction an eco-friendly process. By opting for modular construction, not only are you using durable and recyclable materials, but you’re also investing in sustainable construction.
Using Magnesium Oxide Boards in Modular Construction
Magnesium oxide boards used in modular construction projects serve as eco-friendly alternatives to gypsum-based panels or drywall construction boards. MgO boards are also free of asbestos, ammonia, silica, formaldehyde, and benzene. They also typically require around 25%-50% of the energy used for Portland cement, making them environment-friendly panels.
At MagMatrix Science & Technology (Group) Co., we offer top-quality structural subfloor boards. Our MgO boards are fire resistant and can withstand the highest fire temperatures.
