Volumetric modular units are large building elements that can be linked together to form complete buildings without the need for additional superstructure. The internal fit-out, finishes and building services are pre-installed and commissioned in the modules prior to leaving the factory, ensuring that defects are minimised and quality control is very high. This session will look at what volumetric modular techniques offer the offsite construction industry and will consider lessons learned from some of the UK’s most ground-breaking volumetric modular projects.

Chair: Andy King

Speakers: Steve Pridmore, Steve Newell, Rory Bergin

MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) services include several ‘plug and play’ technologies pre-installed at the factory for plant-rooms, with pipework, cable management and ductwork for building services in-situ. These are integrated in multi-service modules mounted in the ceiling, under the floor, in service risers or alongside associated bathroom and kitchen pod technology. This session will explore the challenges of services integration, design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA), and pod applications in real-life case studies across a range of construction sectors.
