Modular Construction

Modular construction is a revolutionary way to construct buildings. With this method, we produce standardized components of a structure in an off-site factory, and then assemble them on-site. Modular construction as a methodology comes with a ton of advantages, but the three top benefits include:

  • Saves time
    Manufacturing of the standard modules happens concurrently with site preparation, the total time it takes to build a structure can be dramatically reduced.
  • Efficient building process
    As the manufacturing process happens off-site and in a factory, it ensures productivity, increased quality of construction, increased schedule certainty, and improved cost predictability.
  • Safer construction
    75% of the construction happens in a controlled environment, which ensures reduced risks of fall-related and weather-related injuries.
  • Sustainable
    Lesser wastage in the manufacturing process, the reusability, and the durability of the modules make modular construction inherently sustainable.

Modular Construction in


Agriculture is a tricky industry that is highly dependent on weather conditions and location. Owing to these dependencies, farm buildings tend to change seasonally, requiring quick installation and easy relocation. Traditional construction methods are simply too expensive and inconvenient to achieve this.

Modular buildings are therefore becoming more and more popular in agriculture. Different types of modules can help you build everything from worker housing to hardware stores, tool sheds, processing plants for livestock, and so on.

AgriCabs along with its integrations provide a low cost, portable, flexible, and easily implemented infrastructure layer to decrease wastages and logistical costs for Agritech companies and farmers alike.

Modular construction offers some unique advantages in the agricultural sector:

  •  Easy construction
    Two big problems with building such structures in rural and remote areas that are agriculture-friendly is the limited road accessibility and a lack of skilled labour. Modular buildings save time and make this process easy, as most of the construction process happens in controlled environments in an assembly line and then put together in the desired locations.
  • Safety
    Modular buildings provide better safety from the weather, animals and people, as compared to temporary settlements.
  • Sustainability
    As steel is 100% recyclable, it is the product of choice for environmentally conscious, structural professionals. The structure and fast construction time result in less disturbance to the neighbourhood, less waste on site, less pollution to heavy machinery, and a smaller site area.

The need for modular construction in the agriculture industry

DID YOU KNOW: Agriculture accounts for 18% of GDP but more than 55% of the population depend on it for sustenance.

In this disorganised industry, Indian farmers face the logistical problem of fragmented land holdings of less than 1 hectare each. This results in a lack of price awareness and low bargaining power.

Farmers receive only less than 10% of the final price of products owing to the proliferation of middlemen like mandis, traders, wholesalers, and retailers - who take a lion’s share of the profit.

The AgriTech market linkage companies aim to empower the farmers by:

  • Increasing the share of farmers’ profit to 25% by reducing the margin and commissions paid to middlemen 
  • Reducing lost revenue of the farmer due to improper storage and wastages
  • Ensuring adequate compensation for existing produce through price discovery 

While this sounds promising, despite over $2 bn in investment over the past 5 years, the current penetration of AgriTech companies is less than 1% in India due to high CAPEX required to set up rural collection centres as well as increased logistical requirements to access rural India.

Yes, we're a young team on a mission. And, all your other Qs answered!

Where are Modulus Housing’s factories located?

We partner with manufacturers across India to produce these structures. We undertake quality checks of the materials being procured, vet the manufacturing partners and factories, as well as ensure the final products are 10/10. Our partner factories are located in these areas: 1. Jamshedpur, Jharkhand 2. Indore, Madhya Pradesh 3. Mumbai, Maharashtra 4. Chhapi, Gujarat 5. Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Are there any government approvals?

You need not get any approvals from your end to purchase and use our structures. Our structures are designed according to the National Building Codes of India.

Is there any maintenance?

We recommend that you regularly paint the structures. The maintenance cost is less than traditional maintenance.

Can people break into the structures?

No, the structure is designed in such a way that it is as resistant as a conventional building.

How does portability and reusability work with these structures?

It is easy to install, dismantle and port it to different locations. If you’d like to relocate your structures and repurpose it, then we encourage you to contact team Modulus Housing.We will guide you through the process and our team will get it done for you in 2-3 weeks time.

What are the warranty’s terms and conditions?

The structural warranty is valid for a period of 10 yrs. However, the warranty of the panels, fittings, and other accessories will follow OEM's terms and conditions which will be directly passed on to you - the end consumer or buyer.

If I am building the ground floor with Modulus, will I be able to build another floor in the future?

Yes - but only if it is preplanned. We encourage you to convey this to us in the initial stage so that the structure can be designed to take on additional load. We can create a new structure around the building which can take the extended structure's load and at the same time connect with the existing floor levels.

What is the lifespan of the structure?

The lifespan of the PUF (Polyurethane Foam) module is a minimum of 25 years and the LGSF (Light Gauge Steel Frame) module is a minimum of 50 years.

What kind of materials are used?

Our modules are made of two different base materials: 1. PUF (Polyurethane Foam) sandwich panels 2. LGSF (Light Gauge Steel Frame)

How strong and durable are the modules?

Our structures are designed according to the National Building Codes of India. The load bearing frames of the modules are made of steel with a density of 7850 kg/m3. It also can withstand wind load upto 50 m/s.
