With all the damage we put the environment through, and when I say we I’m speaking of humankind in general, it’s needless to say we should all join up in the sustainability trends, thinking of resources, waste management and how decisions we make affect the surroundings.
It’s not surprising modular construction has become popular throughout the decades, thanks to these very aspects, so much so in fact it’s even taking over the hospitality and hotel industry.
Let’s face it, the rise of construction costs in Australia (among the highest in the world, Sydney in particular) that’s expected to continue in the following years too certainly has something to do with the popularity of modular hotel room construction with people in hospitality and hotel developers.
While nothing new, modular is a concept that’s been through many changes over the years, thanks to the technological developments, so it’s much more advanced than what modular meant right in the beginning, allowing great control over the costs (both materials and labour), quality as well as completion on schedule with the use of advanced systems, software and scales leading to a result of utmost precision.
Modular isn’t mobile, the construction is same as the traditional one built on-site in terms of strength with the exception the modular is built in a factory, in a climate that’s controlled so there’s less of a chance for something to go wrong with the construction itself, less room for mistakes which means no delays.
It’s logical this leads to an increase of profits too because simply said the sooner you have your hotel ready, the sooner you get in business. Modular also brings about more variety with the styles due to the wide range of materials being used, all carefully selected with particular attention on sustainability and a construction that’s well insulated and energy-efficient.
Since this kind of construction works in harmony with the environment, there’s less waste on site as opposed to traditional construction which means it’s an eco-friendly option and there’s decrease in waste costs altogether.
Additionally, you wouldn’t have to worry about noise either since designing and redesigning is a smooth process with modular buildings, so whether you’re up for entire construction or just modular hotel room construction, it wouldn’t bother neighbours or even hotel guests – quick and easy assembling of the modular pieces make no noise pollution!
Modular building is the future of the hospitality and hotel industry and it’s not difficult to see why!
