Ultimately, the same paneling that allows us to use Mass Customization also supports recycling efforts. Our buildings are designed to be installed and disassembled easily. So when a building is no longer of use, instead of being demolished like traditional construction, the paneling can simply be taken apart and reused. This allows you to drastically cut down on waste in the deconstruction process as well. Many of the structures are also moveable, so the same building can be moved to another location to serve another purpose for you.
The Modular Difference
The first step of waste reduction comes in the attention to detail in the design process. Having sales people work with clients to ensure every detail of your project is mapped out and taken care of. Then, the project and all of the details should be sent to engineering, where they should meticulously design every aspect of the structure. From this point, all the materials you need should be mapped out, down to every last nut and bolt. From there, simply take the required pieces from inventory and get to work on the factory floor.
In the factory, inventory is easier to control than a traditional construction site. All materials have set storage areas that provide easy management and movement. In fact, WRAP, an organization dedicated to resource efficiency, stated that “Volumetric (modular) building systems are the ultimate in offsite manufacturing technology and their substitution for traditional building methods typically leads to a virtual elimination of all wastage bar excavation spoil for ground preparation.” They also showed that an estimated 70-90% of construction waste can be eliminated through offsite construction practices.
Overall, modular construction allows for efficiency and sustainability in all aspects of the construction process. The factories are designed for our employees to quickly grab and transport materials. The construction process is designed to ensure every piece of material is used to its fullest potential. And the products are designed to be quickly put together, durable, and perfectly customizable for the customers. Modular buildings and structures provide world class construction methods for your company, while also providing an ecofriendly solution for the environment.
