Modular construction involves assembling complete buildings using individual factory-built modules. These steel-framed modules are manufactured to exacting tolerances under controlled factory conditions, where construction is not impeded by poor weather or adverse site conditions. The modules are fully fitted with all electrics, plumbing, heating and internal finishes before they leave the factory. Once completed, the modules are transported to site by road, and then craned into position. Modules are connected on site to create complete buildings, which can be of any size and have multiple storeys.
