FRAMELS modular buildings are prefabricated buildings or houses that consist of repeated sections called modules. Modular is a construction method that involves constructing sections away from the building site, then delivering them to the intended site.
Installation of the prefabricated sections is completed on site. FRAMELS sections most of the times are placed using a crane. The modules can be placed side-by-side, end-to-end, or stacked, allowing a variety of configurations and styles. After placement the modules are joined together using inter- module connections, also known as inter-connections. The inter-connections tie the individual modules together to form the overall building structure.
Modular buildings, also called prefabricated homes or precision-built homes, are built to equal or higher standards as traditionally built homes. The building method is referred to as permanent modular construction.
Material for traditionally built and modular homes are the same. FRAMELS modular structures are not the same as container or mobile structures. Modular units are typically transported on flat-bed trucks and must conform to all relevant local building codes.
