USEFUL INFORMATION

There are 10 reasons why modular houses are better that traditional houses:

 

  1. Shorter duration of building process. It takes very short time to accomplish building process.
  2. Improved quality of the constructions. Considering that most of the products are prefabricated, modular houses offers more flexible possibilities for creativity and quality.
  3. Reduced man hours: Modular houses doesn’t require a lot of man hours to be assembled on a site. They are prefabricated!
  4. Reduced costs, improved profitability: In comparison with traditional building methods, modular houses reduces expenses, and the expansion of the building appears to be more economical.
  5. Improved health and safety: Improved ventilation can be reached with non-complicated modifications.
  6. Improved site efficiency: Since most of the building elements are prefabricated, modular houses doesn’t require a lot of building materials and manhours on a site.
  7. Sustainability: Most of building materials used in the construction of modular houses are sustainable and made from a renewable resources.
  8. Materials reduction: Everything you need for a building process is already prepared at the factory. This means the all you need to do is join prefabs up.
  9. Reduced site waste: Work on the site is very limited, since mosto f the elements are prefabricated on a factory.
  10. Increased efficiency: Since prefabs saves both time and money, this building method can be used by housing developers, because more building units can be built at the same time and housing deficit can be reduced.

Horyu Temple, Japan

The world’s oldest surviving wood structure give us a picture of what Japan looked like more than 1,300 years ago. The Buddhist temple built around a statue includes a five-story pagoda, a main hall, an eastern precinct, and a hall of visions.

Kizhi Pogost Church, Russia
Soaring to 123 feet, this is reportedly the world’s tallest structure made exclusively of wood, including the frame and rivets. Located on Kizhi Island in Russia, the church was finished in 1862 without any metal of any sort (a steel frame was added in the 1980s). With 22 domes and an internal vault, the Russian Orthodox church has stood without anything other than timber as its support for over 150 years.
