Building Information Modeling (BIM) is build before building. BIM is shaping the construction information in any of its stages: idea, design, analysis, construction, maintenance and demolition. We seek to bring the minimum margins of error and that is why we choose BIM to anticipate problems, detect interference and reduce costs and time in our projects and works. This technology involves re-thinking the projects and involve all the actors in the coordination of construction, because with BIM all the models are understood and easily simulated.
Structurally, modular buildings are generally stronger than site-built construction. Each module is engineered to independently withstand the loads of transportation and craning onto foundations. Once installed together and sealed, the modules become one integrated wall, floor, and roof assembly. Building offsite ensures better construction quality management. Manufacturing plants have strict quality assurance and quality control programs.
FRAMELS designers look for more sustainable designs for improved environmental impact, modular construction is a natural fit. Building in a controlled environment reduces waste. This building system, along with improved quality management throughout the construction process and significantly less on-site activity, promotes sustainability. High quality, sustainable, innovative, efficient, cost-effective, and shorter time to completion.
Together with quality management and improved completion time, modular construction offers numerous other benefits to owners. Removing approximately 80% of the building construction activity from the site location significantly reduces site disruption, traffic, and improves overall safety and security. Offsite construction eliminates a large part of ongoing construction hazards, ensuring a tremendous advantage.
