1.1 Definition and scope of study
The modular construction market refers to the decentralized construction of buildings. Assembly takes place at a different location from the building's subsequent location, allowing the construction of buildings to meet specific needs: construction sites and offices, but also new forms of housing such as container houses. The modules or containers are usually made of steel, equipped with plumbing, heating and electrical power.
Modular construction has long been designed primarily for the construction industry, but it has become a valid alternative to the construction of single-family homes and offices, as it provides the greatest possible customization and energy savings.
There are many reasons for success, but speed and sustainability and environmental friendliness undoubtedly play a considerable role. Modular construction is therefore present in the construction sector, in the public sector (emergency accommodation, sports changing rooms, school facilities, etc.) and in the private tertiary sector (offices, shops and kiosks, events, health, etc.)
In the midst of a real estate boom marked by the exponential increase in housing prices, modular construction has become a viable alternative in Portugal.
The combination of these elements will allow the construction of larger structures with a low environmental impact since it uses natural materials from the areas surrounding the construction - another advantage. In addition, the materials used keep the temperature inside the house at levels that do not require any form of air conditioning or heating, and the construction of each module is designed to make the most of sunlight.
Tiziana Monterisi, CEO of RiceHouse, highlights another advantage of the website, the "anti-seismic properties" of the materials used. Each 30 square metre module, produced in 100 hours, can be configured for permanent or temporary accommodation. But the main argument remains the price, which allows all configurations, whether for living or working. [ Dinhero Vivo ]
This type of construction can be used in Portugal to accelerate the production of single-family houses, both in the suburbs of urban centres and in rural areas. The potential of this market is quite significant, not only because of the need for housing, but also because of the growing demand for environmentally sustainable houses.
