Modularity can play a key role in productivity
The economic status of construction companies benefits from the use of wooden modular building elements. In Sweden, the lean approach to managing prefabricated house factories was found to hold a potential for boosting productivity from 10% to a staggering 230%. Waste generation, greenhouse gas emissions and claims during the construction process decrease the productivity of the construction sector. Construction professionals reported that almost 80% of projects where prefabricated products were in use produced less waste.
“We should be focusing more on the speed of the process without compromising quality. Shorter building time and easier design leads to faster revenue, but is also an opportunity to meet the rapidly growing needs of urban construction and sustainability demands at the same time”, Toimela notes.
