Modular MultiFamily Apartments

Prefab building is a type of building that consists of several factory-built components or units that are assembled on-site to complete the unit. The world’s first prefabricated, pre-cast paneled apartment blocks were pioneered in Liverpool. The idea was not extensively adopted in Britain, however was widely adopted elsewhere, particularly in Eastern Europe. Architects are incorporating modern designs into the prefab apartments of today. Prefab housing should no longer be compared to a mobile home in terms of appearance, but to that of a complex modernist design. There has also been an increase in the use of green materials in the construction of these prefab apartments. Consumers can easily select between different environmentally friendly finishes and wall systems. Broadway Stack is a 28-unit moderate-income apartment complex built with 56 prefabricated modules in New York City. The modules were assembled off-site in a former subway car factory and then shipped to Inwood, where they are stacked to form a seven-story tower.

Building Luxury Homes Using Modular Construction

Prefabrication isn’t a new technique in construction. It’s been a big help in putting together lower-cost housing and speeding the construction of modular homes for years. It’s also sometimes associated with lower quality. But today contractors and designers are taking prefab to new places, and proposing exciting new uses. Here are just a few ways prefab is expanding into the construction industry. Making Construction Greener—and More Customized Using prefabrication to help put together modular homes isn’t a new concept. What is newer, however, is using prefab to give customers a more customized design while still cutting waste—sometimes to 10% or less. As reported on Mashable, design firms can let customers choose a concept, then outsource much of the major construction to factories. This means walls, beams, flooring, and other components can be built off-site—reducing on-site work to assembling the pieces. These factory-made parts, because they’re planned out precisely, can cut waste to almost nothing—an important consideration for environment-conscious owners and builders. This method also significantly reduces construction costs and...

The Perfect Modular Floor Plan

While just about any floor plan that can be built by conventional stick built means can be built using modular construction, having a house plan that is drawn up with modular building in mind will usually allow for less expensive and more efficient construction. If you want to start designing with modular in mind, you can start with a standard home floor plan and make alterations from there. The changes don’t have to be small either. We’re not just talking about moving a window here or there. It is absolutely possible – and very common – to rearrange rooms, add features, or even add entire floors to a standard home plan. A modular house plan is like a set of Legos. Sure, you can build what’s in the instructions, but you’re also free to mix and match, make changes, and create anything your heart desires.

Building Trend Moves Towards Modular Construction

Building Trend Moves Towards Modular Construction

The Modular Construction Trend continues to increase in popularity for many construction professionals. It involves building important sections of a  structure off-site, usually in a factory-style setting, then assembling those pre-made “modules” on site to create a fully functional structure. There are several benefits of modular construction for both client and contractor, including: Increased availability:  Construction companies are increasingly turning to the modular construction trend for some part of their projects. Some 35 percent of construction companies are incorporating prefabrication into building design, according to information from the management construction firm FMI, cited by reporter Adam Groff on the Construction Global website. FMI also noted 40 percent of firms are using prefabrication and expected to use it more in the future.  Cost savings:  Prefabrication can reduce the cost of a construction project by a significant amount. Since the prefabrication process is less wasteful, material costs are lower. Quicker build times mean reduced labor costs and fewer cost and schedule overruns.Better quality control:   The factory-based process for building prefabricated segments...
