Modular buildings are being used to build more and more around the world. They are becoming the first choice for more and more companies. There are many reasons why this is the case. Modular buildings are flexible, can be built quickly, and don’t cause too much trouble on a construction site. But because this is new technology, there are still a lot of myths about it. In this blog, we’ll clear up 5 of the most common mistakes people make about prefabricated modular buildings.
- Modular buildings tend to make it hard to get work done
In fact, the opposite is true. Modular structures that are prefabricated can cut construction time by up to 60%, which means there are less problems on the site. In prefabrication, building is done in a factory instead of on-site. The building parts are then taken to the building site to be put together.
- They aren’t made to last
Traditional building rules apply to both traditional and modular buildings. So they have to meet the same safety and quality standards for building integrity. A modular building can last for about 25 years on average. So the idea that modular buildings don’t last long is just a myth.
- They don’t have any ideas
Modular structures that are already made have changed over time. Today’s modular buildings can be designed in more ways and can be changed in more ways than ever before. From the outside to the inside, the wall claddings, insulation, and roof can all be built to the client’s exact specifications.
- Modular buildings are not good for the environment.
Environmental issues are talked about everywhere, and builders are always trying to make their projects more sustainable by cutting down on their carbon footprint. Modular construction is much better for the environment than traditional construction. Because most of the building is done in a factory, which is a controlled environment, this is the case. So there isn’t much building trash left at the site. Since these buildings are modular, they can be taken apart and used again.
- Prefabricated modular buildings don’t look good.
At EPACK Prefab, we build based on what the client wants. Even though some businesses need industrial buildings that look the same, this is not a solution that works for everyone. Modular prefab buildings can be made in creative ways so that they can be used in many different ways. From sandwich panels for walls and roofs to glass exteriors, mixing and matching materials in an attractive way can add a lot to the look of a building.
EPACK Prefab is one of the largest companies in India that makes structures that are already built. Our products include warehouses, factory buildings, airport terminals, agricultural buildings, industrial sheds, site offices, prefab hostels, and many more. Contact us if you want to know more.
