Modular Construction

Modular construction is producing standardized components of a structure in an off-site factory, then assembling them on-site. Modular construction as a methodology comes with a ton of advantages, the primary three being,

  • Time Saving
    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
    Benefits like improved productivity, increased quality of construction, increased schedule certainty, and improved cost predictability.
  • Safer construction
    75% of the construction happens in an controlled environment, reducing the risks of fall-related injuries and weather-related injuries.
  • Sustainable
    Lesser wastage and the reusability of the modules make modular construction inherently sustainable.

Modular Construction in


Healthcare is seeking to shorten construction timelines and reduce costs while also obtaining a high-quality medical building when it comes to building projects. The modular construction industry is now more popular than ever among hospital owners and healthcare providers. While modular construction was rarely used in healthcare a decade ago, it has now become 49% of the time.

Modular construction offers some unique advantages in the healthcare sector,

  • Clean Construction
    It is likely that you envision a clean and sanitary environment when you think of a hospital. A place where patients and guests can rest and heal. The last thing you probably picture is a loud, noisy construction site. For this reason, modular construction is increasingly being used in the healthcare industry to expand their facilities. Construction is largely completed off-site since the modules are built in a manufacturing facility. This means less disturbance at your medical facility, and more time focused on your patients.
  • Easy expansion
    Modular construction enables the hospital to keep adding units as and when it requires. For example, initially, the hospital can choose to go with one 10 bedded in patient ward. When there is a constant requirement for more number of beds to be added, another module of in patient ward can be added directly.
  • Reuse and repurpose
    With modular construction, the hospital can change any of their existing blocks into another block seamlessly. For example, a waiting room and reception area when not required anymore, can be used as an exam room and so on. Any of the modular cabins can be used interchangeably as surgical rooms, private offices, laboratories, dispatch offices, delivery rooms, maternity wards, pharmacies, break rooms, cafeterias or kennels and boarding rooms.

The need for modular construction in the healthcare industry

DID YOU KNOW: There is 1 hospital for every 10,600 people in urban areas and only 1 hospital for every 3,93,000 people in rural areas. 

Adding to this gap in India, there is a:

  • 37 percent shortage of Community Health Centres (CHC)
  • 28 percent shortage of Primary Health Centres (PHC)
  • 25 percent shortage of Health Sub Centres (HSC)

3 factors contribute to this shortages and gaps in the country:

  • Low spending, tight budget
    The government’s expenditure only formed 27.1% of India’s Current Health Expenditure. In comparison, Brazil was at 41.9%, the US at 50.2% and China at 56.7%.
  • Lack of time, urgency
    The need for better infrastructure often comes only in times of extreme necessity like the Covid pandemic. Naturally, the required action steps are taken only at a time of emergency. This imposes steep timelines and calls for execution at a huge scale.
  • Difficulty in constructing in rural areas
    Constructing concrete buildings to support the healthcare needs in rural areas depend on several factors like - the availability of equipment, distribution, differing landscape and terrain, and so on.

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.
