5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Building Offsite in 2021

Over the past decade, we’ve seen a huge uptick in interest around Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).  However, this trend has really picked up pace since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, with more businesses and private consumers than ever considering building offsite. In the latest blog from KES Group, we highlight 5 reasons to invest in modular construction in 2021. Check it out and don’t forget to follow us for more industry insights!

It’s true: offsite construction has seen a meteoric rise over the past 15 years, and particularly within the past decade with continued advancements in technology. By 2015, 79% of general contractors, 69% of architects/engineers, and 53% of trade contractors planned on utilizing a “relocatable modular structure” in at least one of their projects within the following three years (PanelBuilt). 

The stats six years ago were impressive. Fast forward to 2021, however, and the rising popularity of offsite construction is beyond doubt. But why should you consider building offsite? Let’s take a look…

1. Faster, Cleaner Construction

The challenges faced by today’s housing market call for the rapid building of homes on an unprecedented scale, with the UK in the midst of a housing crisis that shows little sign of improving. However, offsite construction can offer a real solution to this problem due to its unrivalled speed, with the vast majority of projects completed 30-50% quicker than traditional methods.

When you choose to build offsite, you can ensure that your indoor construction can take place alongside site and foundations work. What’s more, your project won’t be impacted by adverse weather, meaning less delays along the way.

2. A Sustainable Investment

Offsite construction is more sustainable and more environmentally friendly than any other construction method. This is because the buildings are created using eco-friendly building materials wherever possible. On top of that, offsite construction is currently leading the market when it comes to the use of recycled materials.

However, the sustainability benefits of building offsite don’t end there. The actual construction process uses 67% less energy and generates significantly less waste. When you invest in offsite construction, you invest in a construction process that is sustainable from start to finish.

3. Better Health and Safety

With offsite construction, as much as 50% less time is spent onsite, compared to traditional methods, meaning a safer, lower CO2 site with less vehicle traffic and noise as well as reduced opportunities for accidents (including working at height).

Also, because elements like electrics, plumbing, heating, doors, windows – and sometimes more – are fitted offsite this means a quality-controlled construction is delivered to the site with a safer process at the final stage. That’s not to mention the benefits of less health or safety impact or delays from changing weather conditions.

4. Flexibility of use

Thanks to their bespoke, forward-thinking design, buildings constructed offsite are flexible in how they can be used. 

Businesses tend to build offsite to achieve less disruption to business activities and quicker RoI, and we’re expecting to see an uptick in this trend as companies seek out flexible office and meeting space.

5. A Personalised Approach

Offsite construction offers more opportunities for personalisation than any other building method. Whilst our designs are typically sleek and attractive, the range of customisable features can truly make a house into a home. KES Group prides itself on its bespoke approach to modular construction, inviting our customers to make their own choice of finish; from doors and windows to carpets and curtains.
