Sustainability in Modular Construction is a hot topic right now. Modular construction is slowly but surely changing the way that we will live. Over the next few decades, modular construction may well become the go-to method for many home builders. With the UK set bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, sustainability is a priority. It has become an indispensable consideration in the way in which we build housing.  Modular construction techniques have the potential to revolutionise sustainable construction. This is a sector that is predicted to grow to a multi-million-pound industry, all the while creating jobs in a controlled environment.

There is no doubt the interest in modular construction has increased over recent years, but what’s driving this shift? Prices have skyrocketed in the traditional building sector and sustainability goals become more urgent. There are many benefits of the modular approach, which are also critical in meeting ambitious green goals. Let’s examine how modular construction can help us achieve these goals:


Changing Attitudes

Modular construction has come a long way from the homes that rolled off the production line in the mid-20th century. People’s attitudes have changed in over the years. This attitudinal change has allowed us to realise modular constructions’ true potential. Modular construction is capable of producing high-end results, and this has ignited interest in modular as a critical driver of sustainable construction.

Each project is quality controlled in an offsite location. Projects are constructed to higher sustainability standards than a traditional build. Not alone this, but modular reduces time frames and overall costs. As well as being kind to the environment, monetary value is a major advantage.


Value for Money and Sustainability

The demand for high-quality housing that will stand the test of time is at an all-time high. Many people wonder, is this truly something modular construction can deliver?

Modular construction may well be the way to meet the housing shortage and ambitious targets for net zero by 2050.

Many equate sustainability with higher costs; however, this is not the case when it comes to modular construction. These energy-efficient buildings are better insulated than their traditional counterparts. This represents a drastic energy bill saving. Factory-controlled working environment means that waste and disruption are reduced. The entire project is entirely recyclable. When compared with traditional construction methods, modular delivers sustainability and value for money.


Controlled Environment

Reducing the impact of a construction project is something we feel very passionate about. Modular addresses many of the issues that make traditional construction sites so unsustainable. For example, modular construction can reduce noise and pollution impacts on the neighboring community. The reduction in wastage is a major advantage in comparison with traditional construction. Considering the fact that renovation and construction waste accounts for a huge percentage of landfills, modular buildings reduce this significantly. This is a huge plus for an eco-conscious society.


While the UK has been reluctant to embrace the technique, the Government’s enthusiasm and goals are accelerating its growth. Modular housing is a potential solution to an eco-friendlier society.
