Why are eco-friendly prefab homes a better alternative

Modular or prefabricated homes are becoming popular now due to the usage of the latest green technology and green architecture. Here are some of the benefits of why these homes are better and are environment-friendly.

 

Control of Waste

One of the greatest benefits of modular homes is waste reduction. These types of modular homes are pre-built according to specific measurements, so there is no need for excess material, and this can reduce the building waste. The fabrication of the frames, trusses, and other parts reduces waste significantly by around 52%.

 

Energy-Efficient

Modular homes can reduce energy consumption by up to 72%Prefabricated homes mostly use sustainable sources of energy like solar panels which makes them an energy efficient solution.

The prefabricated homes typically use low-energy lighting solutions like LEDs or CFLs, which are energy-efficient.

 

Save water

Water efficiency is another reason why the prefabricated homes are more eco-friendly compared to traditional brick and mortar homes.  The modular prefabricated homes from Tata Steel Nest-In consume up to 48% less fresh water over its life cycle compared to conventional structures.

 

Healthy homes

Modular houses are more sustainable than regular housing, as there's a constant focus on clean and green energy and as they are built using non-toxic materials.

 

Sustainable materials

Modular homes use the latest methods in recycled building materials. These are used for internal walls, insulation and roofs. 

Greenhouse gas related impacts of these home structures is 53% lesser than any conventional structure. Constructing conventional structures releases double the amount of Carbon dioxide whereas these prefabricated homes release only half to around 73 tons of Carbon dioxide harmful for the environment, considering over its lifecycle.

 

Thus, the prefabricated solutions provided by Tata Steel Nest-In are environment-friendly and sustainable in nature, focusing on a world aiming for sustainability.
