Benefits for Every Level of the Supply Chain
There is an opportunity to achieve extra rental income and reduce financing costs through earlier project
completion. If the developer is selling residential units earlier sales can be achieved. SC modular cores
are slimmer than their concrete counterparts thereby increasing the lettable floor area and therefore the
Architects and Engineers Benefit
The modular panels have the ability to be erected in confined spaces or from one side – especially
beneficial in city centre party wall situations. With it being mainly off–site the environmental impact
is lower and the structure reliably accurate.
Main Contractor Benefits
SC Modular Construction eliminates temporary formwork and all that comes with it – rebar fixers, lay down
areas, tidier and safer sites with faster and more accurate construction. Sourcing an SC modular core
through a steelwork contractor reduces the supply chain – one BIM model, fully co-ordinated through a single
Owning and managing the core offers greater ease of attachment for the structural steelwork sub-contractor.
The increased accuracy and better tolerances make construction faster, simpler and safer. The battle over
hook time in heavily congested and tight city centre sites disappears.
