Our Design Solutions

Design efficiency from the start

Modularize's success has been built on the collaboration between designer and manufacturer by bridging the gap to increase optimisation for manufacturing whilst retaining the aesthetic intention. We help our clients design efficiency into their buildings for offsite construction so whether you need to develop or improve a modular or panelised building system, or you are trying to integrate MMC systems into your project - we can help you every step of the way.

Multi-disciplinary Design Solutions

The one stop shop for design

At Modularize we recognise the need for early engagement on a project to ensure you maximise the full potential of offsite thus saving time and money. As Lead Designer we work along side your Lead Architect to ensure the optimum solution is reached.

Whether you need to develop or improve a modular or panelised building system or even if you are trying to integrate MMC systems into your project we can help you every step of the way.

Pre-planning / Feasibility

Saving time and money

Before you submit your planning application engage Modualrize’s Design Team to see if the project meets the core requirements. Being involved at the very start of a project means we can manage client expectations in terms of the business case and strategic brief. It maybe that your project is not suitable for modular or panelised application and we can advise you of this from the very outset saving time and money. Let us mitigate the risk of expensive redesigns and planning resubmissions by considering how a Design for Manufacturing Assembly (DfMA) approach may impact on the project’s objectives from the beginning.

Architectural Design

Maximise the full benefits of offsite

We work along side your Lead Architect to maximise the full benefits of a DfMA approach whilst retaining the architectural intention. From the initial conceptual stage to the developed design we ensure that all construction activities are outlined for manufacturing including safety, productivity, quality and sustainability. Embedding digital technologies into the design and manufacturing process means we can validate the building model against the client’s information requirements easily which allows us to prepare a very accurate cost base and design programme from the start.

Technical Design

Considering all factory and onsite implications

Our value engineering approach generates positive improvements to the project by optimising both the product and the manufacturing process. We develop the DfMA components more accurately to consider all fabrication implications not just in the manufacturing process but also with regards to lifting, handling and transportation. By integrating digital systems such as virtual engineering and BIM we can ensure all architectural, structural, building services (MEP), specialist subcontractor information meets the clients information requirements ensuring we deliver the project on-time and on-budget.

Full Drawings and Bill of Materials

Providing cost certainty at a very early stage of the project

With over a decade’s worth of experience in the industry we can provide full construction information (manufacturing information packs) for both offsite manufacturing and onsite construction in accordance with the construction programme.

This includes:

  • Fabrication drawings
  • Bill of Materials
  • Factory assembly drawings
  • Site assembly drawings

Our industry know-how means our well developed network of offsite manufacturers, construction contractors and supply chain means we can ensure the right materials, plant requirements and operatives are deployed in the right place at the right time. This level of information is how we can provide upfront fixed costs at the design stage meaning you have cost certainty at a very early stage of the project.


Create the optimum design solution

We put together the ultimate modular transport guide – this is a great starting point for designing houses that suit modular construction helping you to create the optimum design solution for your offsite modular project.
