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