The Advantages of Offsite Construction in Critical Controlled Environments

The Advantages of Offsite Construction in Critical Controlled Environments

Precision, compliance, sustainability, and operational efficiency are paramount in a critical controlled environment and, the choice of construction methods can profoundly influence the success of critical controlled environments. Modular or offsite construction, with its innovative approach and adaptable nature, is swiftly emerging as the cornerstone of transformative solutions across various sectors. With, many suppliers now providing sustainable solutions that can help future scalability, profitability and minimise your carbon footprint.

Driving Efficiency Through Innovation

According to a report by McKinsey & Company “Modular Construction: From Projects to Products”, modular construction can reduce project schedules by up to 50% compared to traditional methods, resulting in significant time and cost savings. This streamlined approach benefits the installation of complex mechanical and electrical systems required in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, energy infrastructure projects, water treatment plants, FMCG production facilities and data center’s.

By fabricating pre-made modules off-site concurrently with on-site preparations, modular construction minimises operational downtime and ensures timely project delivery, thereby enhancing overall project ROI.

Furthermore, Research by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) indicates it reduces on-site accidents and injuries by up to 35% compared to traditional construction methods. As a result, minimum downtime.

Embracing Sustainability and a Low Carbon Future

Modular construction stands as a beacon of eco-consciousness in the construction industry. According to research by the Modular Building Institute “Modular Building Institute’s Modular Construction Research”, modular construction can reduce construction waste by up to 90% and lower energy consumption during the construction phase by up to 67%. This sustainable alternative optimises material usage and minimises waste through precision manufacturing in controlled factory settings.

Furthermore, the modular assembly process generates fewer on-site emissions and disturbances, providing a more sustainable and low carbon construction approach. By reducing transportation requirements and harnessing sustainable materials, modular construction not only minimises carbon emissions but also aligns with wider sustainability goals, fostering a more sustainable future for critical controlled

environments. Benefiting industries that require stringent environmental standards, such as pharmaceuticals and water treatment.

“Offsite and modular construction methods have many environmental benefits, from reducing waste and carbon emissions, to creating sustainable supply chains. By harnessing these benefits, we are reducing the impact of our operations and playing a real part in the journey to Net Zero.”
