The reasons for the wide acceptance of prefab modular buildings in East Africa

Modular construction allows the workforce to complete building projects in just a few months. Prefabricated construction and 3D printing are among the two most popular building techniques for affordable construction. So, some of the advantages are noted in the presence of Africa’s construction domain skills gap. Real estate costs are also rising in Africa. Developers will implement innovation in the way they design and construct real estate. Despite traditional building methods, the acceptance of prefab buildings in East Africa is increasing. The biggest benefit is that modular structures are built inside the factory and transported to your site for easy assembling. 

The African construction scenario 

Africa has a fully-developed real estate industry, but it’s short of skilled workers. Also, this same problem is seen in East Africa in other countries as well. The result is expensive development, time consumption, and miscalculations. Prefab modular homes in East Africa are manufactured in segments. They are also built kilometers away from the building site and transported to your location. According to the statistics, almost 60% to 90% of the building is completed inside the factory.

The benefits of modular structures

TSSC engineers implement lean manufacturing techniques used for offsite construction. The modules are stacked up for designing different configurations. This construction process is accomplished onsite by using inter-module networks to arrange the units.

Some of the benefits include affordable construction, and there is no requirement for any extra material. Modular buildings are sustainable and energy-efficient. TSSC construction methods are eco-friendly. This lowers the costs and reduces wastage. Prefabricated construction can be disassembled for one location and assembled in another location effortlessly. The parts can be transported effortlessly, and the installation process is simple. Explore planning and designing possibilities with the TSSC engineers.

TSSC ensures quality assurance

Prefab homes are constructed to standards that are equal or even higher than the traditionally built properties. The TSSC engineers ensure strict quality control methods. Modular construction is carried out with different building materials like steel, concrete, wood, and provisions like doors and windows, water, sewage systems, air conditioning, telecommunications, and power supplies…etc. The extra features are installed inside the factory to save cost and time. We also encourage erecting permanent modular structures that are built in a single location. The number of stories you wish to build is dependent on the building regulations in Africa. 

Knowing the cost

The cost factor depends on the project scale and the building material. Some other factors include internal/external fitting and fixtures. External environmental factors, including the weather, do not interrupt project schedules.

Final words

Many governments like Nigeria launched competent training initiatives. The developers should find the modular building as an avenue to get rid of onsite complications and faltering. Prefabricated structures take little time and a workforce to assemble. 

The urbanization of the continent accords with a worldwide redirection in the building industry. This is why Africa’s construction industry has shifted to a greener development. Request for a quote.
