5 - Ways Modular/Demountable Construction is the Greenest Option

At Lada Cube we receive inquiries daily from companies, universities, entrepreneurs, architects, engineers and dreamers looking for new solutions to the traditional wall model.

What we’re finding is that through the adoption of green technologies, the benefits of modular/demountable walls extend well beyond stewardship by providing huge financial benefits as well.  At Lada Cube we believe that these constant inquiries are indicators that markets are not only ready for the adoption of new green technologies, but that the financial rewards are finally catching up to the ethics of doing the right thing.

We believe that once you weigh all the benefits of going modular/demountable, these facts will lead you choose modular/demountable construction over traditional stick-built construction.

At nearly 25%, construction waste is the largest contributor to our waste stream. Cutting it would have measurable impact on landfills, air pollution, and our consumption of natural resources as well as your bottom dollar. 

The US Green Building Council agrees. That's why modular construction is worth additional points for buildings seeking LEED certification. Additional Information regarding LEED from MBI.

Here are 5 eco-friendly elements of modular construction.

  1. Greater Resource Efficiency - Off-site manufacturing can reduce waste by up to 90% through limited use of package materials (wood pallets, plastic shrink wrap, cardboard, etc.). Precision manufacturing and a repetitive process also make the best use of materials, further reducing construction waste.
  2. Reduced Impact on Air Quality - In-factory manufacturing incorporates air quality controls that trap environmental contaminants before they escape into the atmosphere.
  3. Incorporation of Green Building Materials - Modular can use the latest recycling and sustainable building materials as traditional construction.
  4. Minimal Onsite Emissions - Modular construction requires significantly less on-site disruption than traditional building. This means the use of heavy equipment is minimal and a projects carbon footprint is minimal.
  5. Structural Sustainability - Modular buildings can be deconstructed and reused at other locations or recycled for use in other projects making them the most sustainable option.

Sustainable building can have a lasting impact on generations to come. Make the switch today.
