Why are Offsite Modular Homes gaining popularity in the Urban sectors of India ?

With the massive increase in population and incomes over the past decades, there has been a huge rise in the demand for immediate and easy housing solutions. Modular buildings or houses have emerged as an alternative to combat with these problems. Before we dive further let’s understand what are modular/prefabricated construction solutions


So what are Modular homes?

Modular solutions or prefabricated solutions involve manufacturing of a building's components in an off-site environment, typically in a factory controlled setting. The finished modules and components of the houses are then transported to the location where they would be installed. The sections are assembled by a skilled execution team and installation of the house is completed at the construction site.

Modular construction is a great alternative for traditional brick-and-mortar solutions because they bring in various advantages.


The Problem of Urban Housing Spaces in India

India is facing a massive dearth of quality living spaces, especially in urban areas, fuelled by  the ever increasing rise in population and migration from rural to urban centres, which is further accelerating the demand for quality housing spaces. According to the industry reports, it is estimated that India is facing a massive urban housing shortage, which steadily keeps growing.

The key challenge in dealing with this problem is finding a replacement for traditional house construction methods which can solve the problem quickly and efficiently. In such a situation modular construction solutions is turning up to be the ‘saviour’ that can solve the problem of quality living spaces in urban areas.


Advantages of Offsite Modular Construction

Let’s have a look at the various benefits and advantages modular construction brings:

  • Environment-friendly: These homes are environment-friendly as the waste generated during the construction of these homes is significantly lesser, in comparison to traditional houses. Moreover, modular construction requires close to 65% lesser material resources, such as sand, cement and water, during construction as compared to conventional techniques.
  • Strong structure: Modular construction provides a more strong and durable structure. They have a high strength-to-weight ratio, are much lighter, and can withstand strong seismic and wind resistances.
  • Shorter construction time: The construction of these homes takes less time than traditional methods of building homes since they are technology driven. In fact, modular construction is 2-3 times faster as compared to RCC construction
  • Consistent quality: All the modules are constructed in a factory-controlled environment following specific standards, and undergo stringent quality checks at each stage, ensuring high and consistent quality across all projects
