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