Entuitive’s Modular portfolio is an example of the balance we achieve between economy, aesthetics, and high productivity.
In a process that allows a building or components of a building to be partially or completely constructed off-site, under controlled plant conditions, Modular and Prefabricated Construction is a highly-versatile approach with the potential to deliver substantial cost savings, faster project delivery times, higher quality construction with less waste and emissions, and an increase in worker safety. Modular design and construction uses the same materials and is designed to the same codes and standards as conventionally-built facilities.
Modular construction can decrease construction time by up to 50% through:
Welding and other fabrication processes are performed under ideal conditions and without weather-driven delays, or the impact of bad weather on building materials. Additionally, any reviews by the authorities having jurisdiction and the design team occurs in the factory prior to units being shipped to site.
Material waste is reduced with production-style assembly and ideal construction conditions. Additionally, system testing and pre-shipment reviews identify and correct any potential problems before a module is delivered.
Safety risks are reduced under optimal construction conditions provided by an enclosed fabrication facility and through automation of repetitive tasks.
Noise and dust pollution near the construction side is reduced, as many traditionally on-site tasks are performed in a factory. Risk of vandalism and material theft is also reduced as material does not need to be stored on site.
There is a significant reduction in the negative schedule interference associated with weather since modules are fabricated in a controlled indoor environment.
Positioning you for success
Entuitive’s approach to finalizing a design early in the process is rooted in our culture of collaboration. We encourage early and ongoing involvement with the entire project team including the module fabricator, and we utilize parametric tools to generate our analytical and BIM models quickly to allow for early optioneering & design decisions. Additionally, the BIM model allows for ongoing coordination and finalization before construction starts.
