Why go Modular?
Fabrication can be completed offsite at the same time as any site development work. Weather delays and other external factors can also be dramatically minimised with production work completed in a controlled offsite setting. Buildings are ready for occupancy as much as 30% sooner than conventional construction methods. With an accelerated project delivery timeline, developers and builders can take on more projects and scale their businesses more effectively.
With a fully implemented modular system, project costs can be considerably reduced by minimising wasted material, a more efficient use of labour, and reduced operational costs from shorter overall project timelines. Reduced design requirements are a feature of standardised modular units, also decreasing the amount of equipment to be used and maintained on site. With consistent components and production techniques, modular projects also have fewer resource requirements than traditional construction projects.
With the improved conditions of the factory setting comes improved control over fabrication and assembly. Crews are able to establish consistency in production, resulting in “economies of process” where builders are able to truly optimise their workflows. This has implications on maximising returns for project owners and developers as well as the experience of end-users.
On and around the building site, there is less disruption to neighbours and local communities due to smaller work crews and significantly reduced timeframes on-site. There are also fewer heavily laden or long-vehicles disrupting local traffic and infrastructure.
Conditions for builders and sub-trades are safer with an offsite approach to construction, and a factory environment facilitates more opportunities for workplace gender diversity. A factory environment also reduces risk and liability costs associated with sub trades and contractors.
The variable nature of sites and project requirements means two residential construction projects are never the same. A major factor will often be the number of dwellings required followed by the unique design and situational requirements of each home.
With the bulk of the original planning, design and subsequent fabrication being conducted in one place, by one team, developers can deliver all the advantages of a modular construction approach across any number of homes. Perry Modular Homes has the capability and capacity to provide fast, effective, high quality builds of dozens of homes at a time, so don’t let scale be a barrier to getting the benefits of the future of residential construction.
