The modular construction evolution of the hotel industry

Posted by FRAMECAD on Feb 1, 2018 8:37:12 AM

Given the complexity of hotel construction projects, a constant task for developers is to cut costs, improve timelines, and lower risks on site — all while maintaining the quality and durability of buildings.


One possible solution is modular construction. With this technique, building units called ‘pods’ or ‘modules’ are pre-built offsite in a climate-controlled factory environment. Modules are then transported to the building site for stacking or side-by-side placement using cranes. Onsite labor then handles detailing and finishing.

CFS: Ideal for both onsite and offsite construction

A core advantage of cold formed steel (CFS) is its adaptability and its suitability for the two main construction methodologies: onsite and offsite construction. In this post, we explore the differences between these two construction methodologies, and how the different approaches combine to demonstrate the superb versatility of CFS. 

CFS construction is a building process which is productive and efficient for both onsite and offsite construction. Let’s have a look at how the two methodologies are applicable to residential and non-residential building applications.
