Frequently Asked Questions of Modular Building

1. What is Modular Building?

Modular Building is manufactured in a factory environment and transported to a pre-prepared project site for installation. All decorations have been completed when the module leaves the factory, including complete bathroom and kitchen facilities. Residents only need to add furniture in the Modular Building.

2. What are the benefits of Modular Building?


Sustainability is one of the most apparent advantages of off-site construction methods compared to traditional construction methods. In addition, the off-site construction process itself avoids the environmental impact and noise pollution caused by on-site construction.

Modular Building has a high energy efficiency during its life cycle, and there are still many materials and parts that can be reused after disassembly.

Off-site built houses are sustainable in terms of the materials used, the production process (including the traditional decoration process), the use process, and the entire process of the end of use.

Construction speed

Another aspect of Modular Building’s advantage is that off-site construction methods can achieve faster construction than traditional construction methods.

The high speed of Modular Building comes from mass production in an efficient production environment and standardized production of crucial components.

Taking a single module of 36 square meters as an example, under mature production conditions, the production efficiency of finished modules (including decoration) can reach 90 minutes/piece, that is, 0.4 square meters/minute.

Completion speed

The main body’s basic engineering and off-site construction are carried out simultaneously, and the factory production and the on-site installation are overlapped. Such a production process can significantly shorten the construction period. It can also eliminate the impact of weather and seasonal changes on the on-site construction period as much as possible so that the construction can be as early as possible Put into use.

This kind of Modular Building can significantly accelerate the speed of capital recovery, and more importantly, it can increase the project’s profitability.

Save investment

Faster construction and completion speed and order-based production and purchase methods can effectively shorten the construction period and capital occupation time, thereby avoiding premature capital accumulation and saving investment capital and opportunity costs.

The ideal completion speed enables the project to be delivered and used earlier than traditional construction methods, resulting in benefits.

Quality product

Modular Building uses high-quality building materials and is produced in a standardized manner by professional factories. While avoiding the impact of inferior materials and bad weather on the construction quality, it can ensure the quality and stability of the Building through standardized control methods, modern inspection methods, and industrial production methods.

This is something that the traditional construction process cannot satisfy. The material selected for Modular Building has a life cycle of up to 50-60 years.

Product diversification

In addition to providing complete sets of decorated or unfurnished residential products, Modular Building can also offer parts and components to produce traditional building methods, including interior wall systems, kitchen and bathroom units, exterior wall systems, and so on.

These parts and components can be directly transported to the construction site for installation, effectively supporting traditional construction methods.

4. Can Modular buildings be produced according to the customer’s design?

Yes. CIMC Yangzhou Base already has some types of residential modules to choose from. We can also design and produce according to the floor plan provided by the customer.

5. Is there a size limit for modular houses?

Since the modules need to be transported, there will be some size restrictions. Most of these restrictions are highway restrictions. The container factory can produce much larger modules than the limited size of highway viaducts and turns.

One thing to note is that we are only talking about the size display of a single module. Modular Building does not have a size limit, and it just produces a few more modules.

6. How is the modular house transported to the site?

The vehicle can transport the Modular Building directly from the factory to the site. The modules are transported to the project site through the same logistics plan as the production rate and on-site installation activities.

7. How are modular houses assembled and installed?

There will be a mobile crane on-site to install the modules in place. The professional installation team will complete the on-site installation service of the module.

8. How can modular houses bring benefits to the environment?

All materials purchased from suppliers must have quality certification and support sustainable development goals. The sustainability of the house is also reflected in the use of materials, production methods, and energy savings throughout the life cycle. After products that meet the sustainability requirements are produced, they can also be measured by the recyclability and dismantling of the components.
