Technological innovation, social change and upward mobility: our world is changing faster than ever. Sadly much of this acceleration has been based on the ‘take, make & waste’ model: building fast at the cost of our environment, however a movement is in the making to end this resource wastage, shifting to a more regenerative economic model. When a responsible, renewable model becomes the norm, where will this leave the property and construction industry?
There’s so many variations in accommodation to choose from when you’re planning a holiday - hotels, apartments, caravans, cottages, even camping, but I bet you haven’t considered the concept of a modular getaway.
In developing countries the demand for low cost, yet sustainable living is unsurprisingly a huge priority - and even more so due to the extent and frequency of catastrophic events putting pressure on housing requirements.
One thing about modular buildings that saves time, energy and money is that they are constructed and assembled off-site in a factory.
Modular building is a versatile and dynamic method of construction that has been gaining in popularity in recent years. Despite this, there is still some confusion over the processes involved. This may sometimes lead people to hesitate before choosing modular as a construction method for their project.
Here we take a look at the extensive innovation within the modular industry and explore Pre-Fabs that have become the first of their kind.
This stunning and futuristic Modular Pre-Fab is so much more than a shelter for weary mountaineers. The fact it looks more like a spaceship than anything earthly is very fitting given Gervasutti’s high altitude at 2833 meters above sea level.
With massive increases in population over the last ten years, the UK is facing unprecedented demands on its schools. The birth rate in England between 2001 and 2011 was comparable to the baby-boom of the 1950s, and has resulted in schools all over the country facing big challenges in the coming years.
Modular building is one of Reds10’s main areas of expertise, but there is still a bit of confusion out there surrounding the process and how it works. Scores of people and organisations have been learning about the many advantages of modular building in the last few years and the practice is now taking off in a big way.
Building on a successful start to the year, Reds10 is pleased to announce its appointment as FF&E (Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment) consultants to the Tauheedul Education Trust. Tauheedul Education match Reds10’s commitment to excellence, and both companies are excited about the potential of this new partnership.
Reds10 recently worked on a project in Brighton aimed at giving homeless people in the city a roof over their heads. With an estimated 70 to 100 people sleeping rough in Brighton every night, homelessness has been a serious problem in the city for a number of years.
