1. Short time to build – When compared to traditional building methods, modular construction can speed up the building process by 30–50%. With prefabrication, the inside, the outside, and the foundation can all be built at the same time, without having to worry about weather delays.
2. Eco-friendly – The carbon footprint of modular building is much smaller than that of traditional building because it uses recycled building materials. The amount of waste made by this method of building is kept to a minimum by building different modules away from the site.
3. Minimized expenditure – Most companies that do prefabrication also offer design services, so you may not need to hire an architect. Also, a shorter amount of time spent building means less money spent on labor. Each part is made with a set amount of wood, concrete, and rebar, so none of the materials are wasted.
4. Quality Control – In this way of building, the most important things are high tolerance and quality control. Modular building parts are made and put together in controlled environments, which protects the structure from any shocks. When building takes place in a closed space, problems like warped wood are less likely to happen.
5. Flexible to use – In modular buildings, new and flexible structural systems are used. For example, elevator shafts, terrace patios, stairwells, and even whole hallways can be moved around in the floor plan without hurting the structure because of torsion.
6. Problems with modular building – Modular construction has its own set of problems, just like any other building method. If you want to buy a home built with modular technology, you should know about these problems and be ready for them.
7. Financing limitations – Most payments for modular construction must be made upfront or in installments as each part or unit is built or put together. Most banks in India don’t have rules for modular construction, which could make it hard for you to get a housing loan to help with this process.
8. Low resale value – Since modular construction is just starting to catch on in India, the market has a bad reputation about it. People think wrongly that these buildings aren’t very good, which makes it hard to sell them.
9. Few design options – Only a small number of construction companies have fully realized the potential of modular technology, so most builders only offer you a small number of designs and layouts that may be out of date.
10. Flaws in the finishing – Because the parts of modular construction are small, the finished structure may have protrusions that make it look and feel bad. Because of shrinkage, walls and slabs could sometimes get cracks.
