  • 1. Construction Modularity Des Doran http://www.brunel.ac.uk/about/acad/bbs/bbsstaff/bm_staff/desdoran IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 2. IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 3. The research <ul><li>Undertaken Summer 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>3 case studies of UK Modular Building Manufacturers located in Hull, UK </li></ul><ul><li>To determine the nature and scope of modularity within the construction sector </li></ul><ul><li>Exploratory study to inform future larger scale research </li></ul>IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 4. Why? <ul><li>Very little research </li></ul><ul><li>A growing area </li></ul><ul><li>Many opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>Access </li></ul>IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 5. Research aims <ul><li>To determine how modularity is defined within the construction sector </li></ul><ul><li>To understand the key differences between modular and non-modular construction </li></ul><ul><li>Compare construction modularity with other sectors </li></ul>IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 6. IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 7. The sector <ul><li>Modular construction is valued at over £2bn </li></ul><ul><li>Applications include Hospitals, Schools, administration buildings, prisons, retail outlets </li></ul>IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 8. Construction modularity IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 9. Benefits of modular construction <ul><li>Off-site benefits (labour, material waste, storage requirements, welfare provision) </li></ul><ul><li>Programme benefits (increased up front commitment, quality and speed of installation) </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing benefits (lean operations) </li></ul>IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 10. IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland The cases
  • 11. The cases IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 12. The findings IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 13. Defining modularity IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 14. Distinguishing between modular and non-modular IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 15. The modular design process IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 16. Limitations of construction modularity IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 17. IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 18. Pure modular Hybrid Non-modular Modular continuum IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 19. Value transfer activity IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
  • 20. Initial findings <ul><li>Conceptually, modularity clearly articulated </li></ul><ul><li>Modular construction competes on speed and quality </li></ul><ul><li>Modular construction costs more than traditional on-site construction </li></ul><ul><li>Limited evidence of effective buyer-supplier relationships </li></ul><ul><li>Significant constraints impede modular construction </li></ul>IPSERA 2010, Lappeenranta, Finland
