Summary and extracts

1 Market overview

1.1 Definition and presentation

The market for modular construction refers to the construction of prefabricated buildings, including containers (or modules) directly designed in the factory and assembled at the construction site. Assembly makes it possible to create buildings capable of meeting specific or permanent needs: site boxes, offices but also new forms of housing such as container homes. The modules or containers are generally made of steel, equipped with plumbing, heating and electrical currents. The interior finishes are specified when leaving the production workshop. In this study, we will use the names modular construction and prefabricated construction interchangeably to mean the same thing.

Long thought mainly for the construction industry - for the site personnel in particular - and a temporary deployment, modular construction has over time become an important part of the a credible alternative to the construction of individual housing and offices. The modular construction market is divided into the activities of sale and to rental. Often, the modular construction allows you to to meet economic needs to install buildings on a temporary basis, when a building is under reconstruction or in rehabilitation, but also when a need for extension of offices or workshops appears in the tertiary sector.

The modular construction is, therefore, present in the construction sector in the public sector (emergency accommodation, sports changing rooms, school premises, etc.) and in the sector private tertiary sector (offices, shops and kiosks, events, health, etc.).
