Modular architecture gains prominence

It is a system that allows the design of spaces in a flexible, fast and affordable way. This type of building is adapted to the needs of the user and a 21st century society.

The architecture of the 21st century has experienced a 180 degree turn, in adaptation to the needs of the big cities and their citizens, their interests and way of life. Modular construction is the new protagonist of the modern, efficient and sustainable building sector, which allows creating and designing spaces from scratch in less time, with less costs, in a more flexible, customizable and environmentally friendly way.

The construction of this type of housing, premises, annexes or extensions are tailored, with a distribution in modules that allows to reduce the time of construction and design and delivery times, as well as being more affordable. A client can design and dispose of their home ready to move in just three months, which is a before and after in the construction sector and housing acquisition.

In Spain, this trend has come to stay, with a strong entry especially at the business level, for commercial stands, prefabricated establishments and booths or for temporary constructions. However in the islands, this type of construction has already been applied in schools and public centers, institutional headquarters and to expand existing buildings. In the United States, one in three homes purchased are already prefabricated, gaining popularity day by day and extending to other areas for its wide range of advantages.

The secret that these buildings are cheaper and faster to build is based on the manufacture of the modules in large industrial buildings, which are assembled in situ, following a much simpler and more comfortable method for the builder and that allows to shorten deadlines. delivery for the customer.

In the United States and Europe, the prefabricated modules of these constructions are usually of Nordic or industrial style, joining metal and wood as main materials. In the Canaries, freight transport containers, common in ports, are an increasingly demanded solution, since they are easily transportable and offer many constructive possibilities at low cost.

From container to house. Modular architecture with shipping containers is an interesting and increasingly popular option to create spaces quickly, ecologically and practically.

This type of construction is included within the modular or prefabricated architecture, which takes advantage of an existing structure of metal, very strong and resistant, designed to withstand the inclemency of time and large loads.

The use of containers as a basis for modular architecture structures has also taken center stage due to its respect for the environment, sustainability and the reduction of energy costs in its construction process, saving the owner a percentage of 50% of costs.

Faster, cheaper and flexible

Advantages. The modular construction is increasingly popular and demanded by the multiple advantages it offers, which responds to the needs of the new tenant and the current housing uses. These buildings are more affordable than the traditional ones and have a much faster assembly, they are also respectful with the environment and are a driving tool for the use of recycled materials.

Expand. Other advantages of this constructive format are the possibility of choice, not only of sizes, but of materials, finishes and qualities, which allows adjusting the price to the tastes and priorities of the owner. In addition, contrary to what happens with the traditional, these modular buildings can be expanded and expanded, so they adapt to the way of life of the tenant or the development of the business.

Changing. The possibility of customizing the modules before building them and assembling them, converts this architectural format into a bet to create unique, modifiable and changing spaces, integrated into the environments and capable of adapting to the novelties and trends in designs and in the market.
