With our Modular Services division, we plan, model and produce bespoke solutions for any project, taking a Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approach.
The key part of DfMA is that the whole design, engineering, manufacturing and construction process is done at our facilities, with everything pre-assembled and tested here before it’s delivered and installed on site.
Why’s that important? It means our whole team, from all points of the timeline, can collaborate across the process from the start. Everybody has sight of the goal, and can ensure their expertise is woven into the DNA of the solution.
Our unified approach benefits our clients in all kinds of ways: improved quality, higher productivity, more flexibility and even less-obvious benefits like better health & safety, fewer teams on site and potentially, earlier completion dates.
Our additional DfMA Lite process has an even greater positive impact on the carbon footprint of projects, as where possible it reduces heavy materials for frameworks and pipes.
There are many benefits to this approach, but the most striking are:
Most work is carried out in the factory environment – making it easier to effectively manage every facet of a project. In general, this results in a 68% reduction in defects.
On-site activities are streamlined – fewer trades and materials on site can lead to shorter project durations. Commonly we’ve seen a 60% reduction in on-site labour.
Smaller carbon footprint – less waste, deliveries and resources on site.
