How Modular Construction Benefits the Environment

6 built-in eco-efficiencies of prefabricated buildings.

There’s a host of eco-efficiencies built into modular design and building, which now puts it at the forefront of the industry when it comes to sustainable practices, saving on resources and staying environmentally conscious.

1.Modern materials

Modular builders are at the cutting edge in terms of the building materials we use. We’re constantly adapting our designs to incorporate building innovations which have a sustainability impact. Our team of designers and procurement experts are ready to bring you the latest advice.

2.Re-usability of materials

Components of modular buildings can be re-used, re-purposed, adapted for use in new or expanded buildings, or even sold on when you’re done with them. They’re endlessly flexible - just add good design and imagination.

3.Eco-friendly features

The design and infrastructure of modular buildings lends itself to eco-friendly features, such as solar panels and rainwater tanks, that will not only save you money but help save the planet! Tasbuilt Commercial’s design consultants also have a diverse range of interior design solutions to help you build an eco-efficient office space, classroom, accommodation cabin or any other industrial or commercial building; solutions such as double-glazed windows and wood/gas fires to naturally heat a space, and LED lights to help save power.

4.Reduced waste

The highly efficient build style of modular means there’s less wastage of materials. Traditionally, the building industry has accounted for a huge percentage of landfill. That’s no longer the case with modular building, where materials are purchased at scale and precision measured for each project. These are changes we’re proud to be making in our industry.

5.Transport efficiencies

Our modular buildings are constructed offsite and then transported for installation in one hit. This makes for an exciting day and some interesting traffic, but also cuts down the need for multiple trips by builders’ trucks, trades and suppliers.

6.Portability of buildings

Modular can mean portable. Buildings can be re-used for future projects elsewhere or moved to a different site to answer a different need. That means reduced requirement for new buildings and raw materials.
