Benefits of Modular Construction

Reduces the cost of construction

Prefabricated modules make construction faster and more cost-effective. The duration of the construction project decreases, along with operating and joint costs, as well as fixed costs. lorem ipsum 

Improves construction quality

The most demanding on-site installation and finishing work can now be completed at the factory. Production in consistent, controlled, weather-protected conditions ensures high-quality results, time after time.

More choices for residents

In modular construction, more attention can be paid to the needs of those using the space. Modularity means flexibility; for example, the bathroom can be customised to the resident’s needs and wishes.  lorem ipsum lorem ipsum

Smarter buildings

With Fira Modules, each apartment and the entire building have a single intelligent system and access to real-time information about electricity and water consumption and air quality, among other aspects, in the cloud.

For builders

Prime-quality technical solutions and ease of installation. During the construction of apartments, most repair visits are related to bathrooms. Delays and additional costs can be brought under control when quality assurance and around 50 per cent of the interior work related to apartments are carried out in a controlled factory environment. The modules are not exposed to the weather on the construction site, as they are installed directly into a shaft once the delivery arrives. In terms of duration, modular construction is superior to traditional bathroom construction. An entire shaft can be completed in a day.

This also increases the efficiency of condition and data communications control, as Fira Modules makes it easy to store data collected during the project. Fira Modules serves as a hub for sensors, collecting data about humidity, temperature, air pressure and dust particles. It also serves as a wireless base station. Builders can make use of the condition data during construction.

For designers

Mass-customisable technical building system module for easier design. Standard components are used to build intelligent bathroom elements that are easy to integrate into customers’ plans. Thanks to standardised mass-customised products, bathrooms do not need to be designed separately for each apartment or site.  The modules come fully equipped with most of the technical building system solutions, which have already been designed and tested, including details related to sound and fire engineering. During the construction of the building, the furnished and interior designed, stylish bathroom modules are installed vertically in a shaft, where they are easy to connect for use. The Fira Modules solution is suitable for intermediate floors with hollow slabs and Super Slabs, as well as those cast in situ.

For residents

A smart bathroom pod is a symbiosis of design and usability. Residents can choose materials and furniture according to their needs and wishes. The functionality and atmosphere of the module have been designed with the user in mind. With Fira Modules, each apartment and the entire building have a single intelligent system and access to real-time information about electricity and water consumption and air quality, among other aspects, in the cloud. In the future, it will also be possible to control apartments remotely through various systems and consumer applications. Fira Modules is easy to use and serves the residents and the entire housing cooperative.

Installation

The modules are installed on a turnkey principle.

Consultation on technical building systems

We help customers integrate the modules into the project plans in terms of technical building systems and structures.


In the pursuit of a perfect bathroom

Value co-creation in bathroom 2.0 series development consortium

Fira Modules sent an open invitation to the pioneers from the construction industry to join a development consortium that worked to develop Bathroom 2.0 series as it is today. The consortium consisted of ten versatile companies and a university.

The development consortium started working together in june 2018. The consortium worked with requirements specification for the first three months. Then they focused on a technical concept that meet the requirement & cost targets and in the end of the year a product was ready for launch.

The consortium brought unique insight to the development work. The viewpoints from design, construction, property management and end-user perspective where all be incorporated into the concept.

Design based on modularity

Fira Modules has a new vision on modular solutions: design based on modularity. This saves valuable time, even before the first brick has been laid.

Fira Modules reduces interior work by 50% on a construction site

Ready-made modules significantly decrease the need for various teams and supervisors, as well as logistics, as the construction no longer needs to be completed piece by piece.

Are you familiar with modular thinking?

Modular thinking in construction enables reproducibility while also ensuring individual designs through mass customisation – much like in the automotive industry.

Modular construction now and in the future

The modular building has come a long way from the modular bathroom pods of the 1970s. Module libraries are rapidly being created in Finland in collaboration with various operators in the construction industry, and the modular building practices of the future will enable flexible modification of flats and houses to suit residents’ life situations.
