World Environment Day – Significance of Modular Construction in Saving the Environment

World Environment Day is celebrated every year on 5th June, led by the United Nations Environment Programs (UNEP), to create awareness worldwide about the importance of saving the environment and encouraging action for protection. World Environment Day 2022 will be under the theme, 'Only One Earth,' highlighting the importance of preserving the mother earth and the immediate need to live in harmony with nature by making transformative policies.


In the purview of the rising concerns about global pollution and its harmful effect on the ecological system, World Environment Day plays a vital role in changing people's perception about how their lifestyle habits have a massive impact on the surroundings and the environment. It also makes them aware of how consciously making a small change can significantly preserve the earth from various perils.


While there are many causes of global pollution, one of the leading contributors is the construction industry. Research suggests that the construction sector contributes to about 23% of air pollution and 50% of landfill wastes. As a responsible citizen, you can contribute towards saving the environment by making a smart construction choice and switching to modular construction.


In fact, Governments worldwide are considering modular construction as a practical and feasible solution to reduce the environmental hazards related to the traditional RCC construction methods. Let us see how it helps.


Many construction experts and environmental activists have pointed out that conventional brick and mortar construction plays a crucial role in causing water pollution. Also, it is one of the leading contributors to the wastage of fresh water. However, modular or prefab solutions provided by Nest-In from the house of Tata Steel, reduces a significant amount of freshwater wastage. In the current scenario where many countries and citizens are affected by water scarcity, if everyone resorts to modular construction, we can end this together.


Every year, the construction industry produces a considerable amount of wastage. The various valuable natural resources like metal, sand, etc., get wasted and end up in the landfill, putting pressure on the dump yards. The modular construction comes as an effective solution in this regard too.


Prefab solutions provided by Nest-In are made from 100% recyclable steel. Besides, modular construction requires about 65% less material resources than conventional construction methods.


Generally, with traditional construction methods, it takes a long time to build a home. During the process, the builders use several machines, leading to air pollution and emission of harmful gases. However, since the construction of the prefab structures takes place under a factory-controlled environment, the construction process is 2-3 times faster.


Thus, modular construction is a sustainable solution providing significant environmental benefits. If you are looking to build a modular home, you can contact the experts at Nest-In by Tata Steel, and they will be happy to help you build your dream space.
