Modular Construction

The word “modular” describes a construction method or process where individual modules, stand-alone or assembled together, make up larger structures. Many buildings erected today use factory-built construction as part of the process. The choice to build in this way is determined by the client’s requirement for quality assurance, accuracy and speed of construction. Once the design is approved by the client and regulating authorities, assembly takes place in a controlled environment. At the same time, on-site work is undertaken to prepare the infrastructure and foundations. There is no wait to build. The modular parts are constructed and transported to the final destination, ready to be erected immediately.

Why Modular?

A modular build offers the following benefits:

  • A high level of quality assurance, manufactured in laboratory conditions
  • Working in parallel with on-site infrastructure and local companies
  • Accuracy, due to computerised manufacturing tools
  • Speed of manufacture and erection, coupled with ease of installation
  • Tailor made for each client’s needs
  • Utilise economics of scale, with a fast return on investment
  • Earthquake and fire resistance
  • Heat, cooling and noise insulation integral to the building
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Easily maintained and serviced
  • Construction Solutions

    Modern healthcare requires a high level of quality assurance across a variety of interrelated disciplines in order to ensure safe treatment and shorten recovery times. Advances in medical care are such that the hospital environment can directly impact on the ability to deliver care at highest level. Hospital design must contribute to the overall experience of a healthcare system, so that medical staff and patients alike are able to offer the very best treatment.

    The Benefits of Modular Construction

    Modular construction offers clients the opportunity to create sustainable designs to lessen the environmental impact. Construction off-site reduces wastage, both in terms of materials and on-site activity. Building materials are stored securely off-site, thereby both preventing damage and deterioration, whilst also guarding against potential theft. Off-site production reduces disruption to the surrounding area, minimises vehicular traffic to and from the site and improves overall safety and security. Construction hazards are kept to a minimum. Build times on-site are reduced by 50% to 60%. Prefabrication off-site offers the opportunity to consider economics of scale, drastically reducing costs in the long-term. Fewer labourers are required for the on-site construction, with, often, lower professional fees, as the need for specialist input has already been integrated into the overall design. Integration of design and construction at a modular level offers unparalleled ease of maintenance and service..

    Understanding Modular Construction

    If you’re not familiar with modular construction in the world of healthcare, there’s never been a better chance to learn. Today, thousands of healthcare facilities are looking into modular construction techniques thanks to the many advantages offered by this technique.

    What Is It?

    The word “modular” describes a construction method or process where individual modules, stand-alone or assembled together, make up larger structures. Many buildings in various industries erected today use factory-built construction as part of the process. Once the design is approved by the client and regulating authorities, assembly takes place in a controlled environment. At the same time, on-site work is undertaken to prepare the infrastructure and foundations. The building process is fast and easy. The modular parts are constructed and transported to the final destination, ready to be erected immediately.

    The structures can even be designed to be relocated at some point in the future. This feature is ideal in the case of mobile hospital units that must be deployed following natural disasters. Relocatable structures are as safe, clean, and stable as any other modular facility, and they’re just one of the many advantages available with this type of construction.

    The Many Advantages of Modular Construction

    Wondering why so many choose modular over traditional construction methods? The choice to build in this way is typically determined by a number of factors including client requirements regarding quality assurance, accuracy and speed of construction.

    On the whole, modular buildings offer

  • A high level of quality assurance because they’re manufactured in laboratory conditions
  • A parallel timeline for on-site infrastructure and building construction
  • A higher level of accuracy due to computerised manufacturing tools
  • Faster speed of manufacture and erection
  • Easy installation
  • High levels of customization based on client needs
  • Faster ROIs
  • Earthquake and fire resistance
  • Better heat, cooling and noise insulation
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Ease of maintenance and service

  • The Healthcare Construction Solution

    While modular construction works well in any industry, it works particularly well in the world of healthcare. Modern healthcare requires a high level of quality assurance across a variety of interrelated disciplines in order to ensure safe treatment and shorten recovery times. Advances in medical care are such that the hospital environment can directly impact on the ability to deliver care at highest level. Hospital design must contribute to the overall experience of a healthcare system, so that medical staff and patients alike are able to offer the very best treatment. Modular construction means an opportunity to control that environment and integrate added technology that just can’t be handled on-site. It’s the single best way to design, build, and deliver a comprehensive healthcare solution today.

    Why Work with MCC Group For Your Modular Healthcare Facility

    At MCC Group, we know the power of modular construction in the world of healthcare. For the past several decades, we’ve been delivering the advantages of modular and relocatable structures to healthcare companies and governments around the world. We know that modular construction offers clients a number of opportunities.

    Worried about reducing your carbon footprint? With modular, you have the opportunity to create sustainable designs to lessen the environmental impact. Construction off-site reduces wastage, both in terms of materials and on-site activity.

    It’s safer, too! Building materials are stored securely off-site, thereby both preventing damage and deterioration, whilst also guarding against potential theft. More than that though, off-site production reduces disruption to the surrounding area, minimises vehicular traffic to and from the site and improves overall safety and security. Construction hazards are kept to a minimum.

    If you’re looking for a fast, cost-effective option, modular is the way to go. Build times on-site are reduced by 50% to 60%. Prefabrication off-site offers the opportunity to consider economics of scale, drastically reducing long-term costs. Integration of design and construction at a modular level offers unparalleled ease of maintenance and service.

    At MCC Group, we know the advantages of modular designs in the healthcare industry because we’ve been offering them to clients like you for decades. Take a moment to learn more about modular design when you contact us today.
