The Materials Used in Modular Construction

Module-T prefabricated modular constructions are designed and built off-site in our factory in Turkey. They are then shipped and delivered to your location in easy-to-assemble, flat-pack form. Our products are built to last, as they may need to be transported, assembled, dismantled, and relocated several times during their lifespan. It makes using high-quality materials essential and results in the buildings being far more durable and hard wearing than most traditional constructions.


The Materials Used To Make Modular Constructions

Modular buildings differ according to size and purpose, so many different materials are used to make the products. These include:


  • Insulated Sandwich Panel Walls: Insulated sandwich panel outer and inner walls are used in our modular buildings. The thickness of the walls varies from 50mm to 200mm, and they are optimised for acoustic and thermal performance. We offer a choice of insulation, including expandable polystyrene, rock wool, and polyurethane. The walls are then painted and decorated in various colours and pre-cut with the electric socket, networking, and utility connections in place.
  • Quality Galvanised Steel Roof: The roof of our prefabricated buildings is made from high-quality galvanised steel with painted galvanised, gutter-finished sheets or metal tiles.
  • A Choice of Exterior Doors: The doors we use are PVC, aluminium, galvanised and painted steel, or metal, depending on the project. They come in various designs and can include additional security bars, locks, or intercom systems.
  • Interior Doors: The interior doors are either aluminium, PVC, or MDF, and fire doors can also be fitted.
  • Double-Glazed Windows: PVC double-glazing or aluminium are the standard choices of windows. Shutters, sunshades, metal security bars, mosquito nets and alarms can all be fitted if necessary.
  • Utility and Electric Connections: All our modular constructions come pre-manufactured with utility connections. Many options are available, including telephone sockets, electric panels, TV and AV connections, switches, networking, and internet connections.
  • Bespoke Additions and Customisation: You can customise your modular construction to include many features. Module-T offers a wide range of bespoke fixtures and fittings to tailor your building to your needs. Please contact us for comprehensive details.

The Advantages of Modular Construction

Modular buildings boast many advantages, so if you are looking for an affordable way to create space or accommodate your staff, some of the benefits of modular construction include the following:


  1. Cost-Effective

The main advantage of ordering a modular construction is that you can expect a saving of up to 50% compared to a conventional structure. Labour, construction, and material costs are kept to a minimum because the bulk of the manufacturing process is done remotely, leading to significant savings.


  1. Quick to Install

Modular constructions are precision-made prefabricated containers with steel frames and sandwich panel walls. Compared to concrete and brick constructions, this simple yet strong and highly durable structure makes the buildings easy to package and quick to assemble. They can also be erected on a lightweight foundation, reducing civil engineering and labour costs and making them far more environmentally friendly. The systems can then be dismantled and relocated, making them perfect for use on temporary or construction sites.


  1. Highly Versatile

Prefabricated modular constructions are multi-functional, can be joined to make additional space, and can be temporary or permanent. Module-T manufactures a wide range of standard prefab buildings and custom-built containers for use in various commercial and residential locations. Our modular office, accommodation, and sanitary facilities are typically used to create work camps on mining, construction, and industrial sites, often in remote locations. Our prefabricated school buildings, WC and bathroom buildings, dormitories, and locker containers can be found in more than 120 countries. We have also shipped container shops, restaurant buildings, guard houses, and kiosks throughout Turkey to sites on six continents. All our modular buildings can be customised to include the elements you need. They also adhere to the safety standards of their end location, making them a highly versatile and practical solution for clients.


  1. Quality Assured

Module-T products are designed and manufactured remotely and then shipped to your site. The high-technology and precision equipment we use ensures the consistent quality of the product is maintained, meaning you can rest assured that the building you receive is made up to code and built to the highest possible standards.

The Module-T Easy-Build Modular System

Modular constructions are an affordable, fast, and practical way to create the space you need. Our easy-build system ensures you can customise your modular building to include all the features you need before it is assembled at your site.


Conventional builds require a lot of machinery and raw materials to be brought to the location. Contractors and labourers then build the structure, which can take many months and cause significant downtime and on-site disruption.


In contrast, our easy modular building system means the construction happens well away from your site, in the Module-T factory in Istanbul. Our logistics team then ships the building to your location, where you can assemble it quickly. The unique packaging used to transport the facilities is made to save on land and shipping costs. For example, a standard 140m2 modular building can be shipped in a 40-foot container, which results in considerable savings.


One of the main benefits of prefabricated modular constructions is that all the walls, ceilings, and floors come ready-painted and pre-cut with electric sockets and utility connections. The “modules” fit together quickly and can be joined, stacked, or stand-alone. You can add many features to the building to customise it to your needs. Plus, the assembly is quick, and most of our products can be erected in a few hours or days using simple tools. Our specialist assembly teams are on hand to advise you every step of the way, and for larger and more complex projects, they can attend your location to supervise.
