  • Como funciona o método construtivo?
    O nosso método construtivo baseia-se na pré-fabricação de módulos em aço galvanizado que vão totalmente prontos para o local de implantação. Todos os acabamentos são definidos em fase de projeto, sendo totalmente executados em fábrica e depois transportados por caminhão para o local. A colocação no terreno é feita recorrendo a um guindaste, sendo que se exige o acesso ao local de um caminhão de 12m com largura de 3m ou 4m em função da dimensão do módulo. Os módulos são devidamente estruturados com estruturas de aço galvanizados e fixados devidamente ao chão, não carecendo fundação. O nosso trabalho em obra consiste no assentamento dos módulos e na execução dos remates interiores e exteriores entre módulos. As ligações exteriores às redes de águas, esgotos e electricidade, serão feitas posteriormente, sendo que todos os módulos já vão preparados para essas mesmas ligações exteriores.

  • What is modular construction?
    Modular construction is a process in which a building is constructed off-site, under controlled plant conditions, using the same materials and designing to the same codes and standards as conventionally built facilities – but in about half the time. Buildings are produced in “modules” that when put together on site, reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built facility – without compromise. Structurally, modular buildings are generally stronger than conventional construction because each module is engineered to independently withstand the rigors of transportation and craning onto foundations. Once together and sealed, the modules become one integrated wall, floor and roof assembly.
  • What are the advantages of modular houses?
    - SPEED OF CONTRUCTION & FASTER RETURN ON INVESTMENT Modular construction allows for the building and the site work to be completed simultaneously. According to some materials, this can reduce the overall completion schedule by as much as 50%. This also reduces labor, financing and supervision costs. To save even more time and money, nearly all design and engineering disciplines are part of the manufacturing process. Also unique to modular construction is the ability to simultaneously construct a building’s floors, walls, ceilings, rafters, and roofs. During site-built construction, walls cannot be set until floors are in position, and ceilings and rafters cannot be added until walls are erected. On the other hand, with modular construction, walls, floors, ceilings, and rafters are all built at the same time, and then brought together in the same factory to form a building. This process can allow modular construction times of half that of conventional, stick-built construction. - INDOOR CONSTRUCTION Assembly is independent of weather, which can increase work efficiency and avoids damaged building material. - ABILITY TO SERVICE REMOTE LOCATIONS Particularly in countries in which potential markets may be located far from industrial centers, there can be much higher costs to build a site-built house in a remote area or an area experiencing a construction boom such as mining towns. - LOW WASTE With the same plans being constantly built, the manufacturer has records of exactly what quantity of materials are needed for a given job. With the consistency, builders can design systems that use common lengths of lumber, wallboard, etc., cut items with maximum efficiency, or be able to order special lengths in bulk. While waste from a site-built dwelling may typically fill several large dumpsters, construction of a modular dwelling generates much less waste. According to the UK group WRAP, up to a 90% reduction in materials can be achieved through the use of modular construction. Modular construction reduces waste and site disturbance compared to site-built structures. - FLEXIBILITY One can continually add to a modular building, including creating high rises. When the needs change, modular buildings can be disassembled and the modules relocated or refurbished for their next use reducing the demand for raw materials and minimizing the amount of energy expended to create a building to meet the new need. In essence, the entire building can be recycled in some cases. - QUALITY Combining traditional building techniques, quality manufacturing and third-party agencies who offer random inspections, testing, and certification services for quality control, commercial modular buildings are built in strict accordance with appropriate local, state, and national regulations and codes. Due to the need to transport modules to the final site, each module must be built to independently withstand travel and installation requirements. IMPROVED AIR QUALITY Many of the indoor air quality issues identified in new construction result from high moisture levels in the framing materials. Because the modular structure is substantially completed in a factory-controlled setting using dry materials, the potential for high levels of moisture being trapped in the new construction is eliminated.
  • How does our constructive method works?
    Our method is based on pre-fabrication of modules in galvanized steel that are sent to the location ready to live - only need to install first. All finishings are decided during projection time and are executed in the factory and then transported by truck to the location. The modules are structured with Light Steel Frame and properly installed in the floor. Our work in the location consists on the settlement of the modules and implementation of interior and exterior trim between modules. Exterior connection to the water source, wastepipe and electricity wires are done later in the process. All modules go to the location ready to install those connections.
