Modular Construction

Modular Construction for Houses or Large-Scale Developments

Modular construction methods were developed in the USA and are utilized in countries such as Canada, United Kingdom, and China, just to name a few. Our modular construction methods and sustainable materials, coupled with our professionalism and expert team, bring you superior quality buildings at an affordable price and in much less time than with traditional construction methods. Modular construction is ideal for homes as well as for buildings such as hotels, residential condominiums, hospitals, and schools, where quality control and rapid construction are emphasized. Our modular buildings can be easily expanded by using additional modular components or traditional construction methods.

Given Brazil's significant growth and the upcoming world events, putting Brazil at the center of the international stage where quality and speed is paramount, Steelbras’ modular construction methods represent the ideal solution.

 


What is Modular Construction?

Steelbras uses modular (or volumetric) systems—pre-engineered building units that are manufactured separately in our factory, then assembled on site to form a complete structure. 

Modular structures are faster to construct, saving builders—and clients—time and, in the long term, money. The real benefit of building with modular technology is not only the speed of construction but also the superior quality. Every unit is built in the Steelbras factory using the latest building equipment technology that guarantees precision so that when all the sections are assembled, the final structure is marked by design consistency.

For example, to construction  a three-bedroom house,the bedrooms, the kitchen, bathrooms and the living room are constructed by different teams in the factory, while another team prepares the infrastructure/foundation at the site. All teams are working simultaneously. When completed, the sections are brought to the site where they are mounted and assembled.

At Steelbras, we use materials that help conserve natural resources, provide the best durability, and promote energy efficiency. These are light gauge steel, fiber cement, and Low-E® insulation
