Fundamental to offsite construction, volumetric homes are an ideal application for the housing sector.
The success and appeal of volumetric units manufacture rests in the repeatability of units and design. Volumetric units are large building elements that can be linked together to form complete buildings without the need for an additional superstructure.
These can be steel or timber-based and are pre-fitted with electrics, plumbing, heating, doors, windows and internal finishes. They are commissioned prior to leaving the factory, ensuring that defects are minimised, and quality control is high. The units are then transported to the site and carefully craned into position on prepared foundations.
