SUSTAINABILITY

SUSTAINABILITY

Modular construction is a highly recognised sustainable method of building, which coupled with carbon efficient design and manufacturing methods, is able to reduce waste and use energy more efficiently.

LESS IS MORE

By using leading technology we are able to eliminate waste and maximise material use, cost savings which are passed onto the customer.

RECYCLING

Urban Dwell seeks to use building components from recycled sources and a large proportion of factory waste is diverted from landfill to material recycling facilities.

TRANSPORT REDUCTION

A recent study by a leading engineering firm discovered up to an 80% reduction in traffic movements on a modular project compared to traditional building techniques due to the vast majority of the construction/manufacture taking place at the one facility.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Urban Dwell offers options for the reduction of energy consumption with insulation, energy production, recycling and energy efficient products such as lighting.

FLEXIBILITY

As the user’s needs evolve, a modular building can be reconfigured and expanded.

DECONSTRUCTION

Where applicable modules can be removed from site and returned to the facility for a refurbishment or deconstructed and recycled for another use.
