Daiwa House Modular Europe Volumetric Building System
Daiwa House Modular Europe are a development and manufacturing company supplying “Turn-Key volumetric buildings for residential development and construction projects. The modules are to be constructed offsite, before delivery to specified sites in England and Wales to provide residential accommodation in low to medium rise multiple occupancy residential projects up to 10 storeys.
The system is formed using hot rolled steel structural end portals of hollow section columns and channels, bolted to a steel channel perimeter floor with concrete infill. The ceiling structure is formed from hot rolled steel channel. This structural frame is infilled with closed wall and roof panels. External cladding where this is required, can be mounted to the external faces of the modules. Whether this is fixed in the factory depends on the cladding specification and its suitability for transportation. The structural frame is designed to suit a range of lengths and widths of module’s, its robust construction makes it an ideal fit for a ‘circular’ approach to sustainability in modular construction. These key structural elements can be repeatedly reused in refurbished or re-purposed modular units, contributing to an 80% proportion of recyclable components and materials in the modules.
