The first constructed were the office, social and catering facilities for gas stations of the STATOIL chain, in the form of modular steel container buildings. Three types of MINI, MIDI and MAXI stations, differing in size and equipment, were implemented.
In the years 2000 – 2004, approximately 30 stations were made in this technology in Poland.
At the request of one of our customers, designs for the construction of many modular facilities were created in Poland. They were mostly container construction facilities as well as technical containers with additional dynamic loads.
Since 2013, we have carried out workshop construction designs for steel modular facilities implemented in Sweden. This is how a number of construction designs for modular kindergartens, schools and social buildings were created, including several two-story kindergartens with a technical attic with a usable area of approximately 1,200 m2, a four-story social building with a green roof, with a usable area of approximately 5,000 m2, a 4-story school building with a gym with 5,300 m2.
Modules implemented abroad are largely finished in factories in Poland (main frame, staircase elements, internal walls, partly external walls, floors, installation equipment and even furniture).
The façade assembly and finishing works are carried out on the construction site.
Modular buildings are passive (the thermal insulation coefficient of all external partitions is only U £ 0.08 W/m2 x K).
We provide comprehensive executive/workshop documentation of facilities meeting the requirements of European ISO quality standards along with construction calculations according to Eurocodes. We design modular structures in such a way that there are no thermal bridges, with maximally simplified module assembly.
The documentation is prepared in the BOCAD 3D program and includes:
a spatial model and flat summary drawings of individual shipping elements and all elements of individual construction details as well as automatically prepared material lists, which increases its readability and thus improves the production and assembly process.
The modular technology allows to carry out a facility of any purpose (division into modules is agreed with the architect at the stage of creating the architectural concept).
The advantages of modular facilities are:
- shortening the time of work on the construction site, almost limited to assembly
- independence of the Investor and contractors from weather conditions
- quality improvement – greater precision of elements carried out in factories
reducing the nuisance of the investment for the environment – less noise, less waste, shorter time of work on the construction site.
