the modular construction market


1.1 Definition and presentation

The market for modular construction refers to the decentralized construction of buildings. Assembly takes place in a different location in respect to the subsequent place of the building, this allows to construct buildings that meet specific or permanent needs: construction sites, offices, but also new forms of housing such as container houses. The modules or containers are generally made of steel, equipped with plumbing, heating and electrical currents.

Modular construction has long been designed primarily for the construction industry but has become a credible alternative to individual home and office construction as it guarantees greater customization and significant energy savings.

In Italy, the modular construction sector is registering an impressive growth so much so as to refer to them as the future of architecture. The reasons for success are many, but undoubtedly the speed and the sustainable and ecological aspect play considerable roles. Modular construction is therefore present in the construction sector, in the public sector (emergency accommodation, sports changing rooms, school premises, etc.) and in the private tertiary sector (offices, shops and kiosks, events, healthcare, etc.).
