Modular Structures can come as a 2d Component Build or a 3d Volumetric Build. A 2d Component Build is where sections of a modular structure arrive as completed component parts ready for assembly on site.
Benefits of 2D component build:
- Speed of installation – the ‘kit’ form nature of construction reduces build time dramatically.
- Versatility – as with all 2D component ‘modular’ structures, it has the potential to be reconfigured and expanded as required.
- Cost effective – due to reduced build schedules and minimised impact to site and customers.
2D component build solutions also highlight the benefits of Offsite Construction methods, as the pre-manufactured standard component parts are delivered directly to site to form the building envelope in a matter of days.
Minimising time on site and reducing disruption to neighbourhoods (less heavy plant manoeuvres) is a win/win scenario for all stakeholders and provides the flexibility required in highly reactive, price sensitive marketplaces such as retail.
