A new modular apartment building in Stockholm – Vällingby

A new modular apartment building in Stockholm – Vällingby

In 2018, Astel Modular contributed to the goals of integrated Stockholm by manufacturing and installing a new modular apartment building in the Vällingby area. The building was ordered to take a step closer to meeting the city’s housing goals and the city made a substantial investment to complete the project in the set timeframe.

Modular buildings – the future of construction?

Modular buildings – the future of construction?

There is already a saying going around that your next real estate project won’t be built - it will be manufactured. Does it mean that the future of construction is going to be modular? Some would like to argue, but the eco-friendliness and efficiency of modular construction are reaching new heights and the manufacturers of modular buildings have already built some impressive structures all over the world.

New homes are now being built after the fire in Enånger

In 2015, eight apartments in Enånger were destroyed by a fire. It was uncertain for a long time whether the municipally-owned housing company Hudiksvallsbostäder would build new apartments – it seemed to be too expensive from the start, but now construction is underway. At the same time, the housing company is currently constructing 66 apartments outside the city center.

The rooms of the “Welcome-Center” in Kieli Road (German: Kieler Straße) are surrounded by a colonnade. The three residential buildings can house the total of 150 refugees.

The rooms in the two-storey residential buildings of the “Welcome-Centre” opposite the fire house in Kiel Road look practical and modest: three beds and six cabinet modules resembling deposit lockers – this is what a typical room for three looks like.

The town of Dormagen in Germany ordered two dormitory type buildings from us, both of them with capacity to house 80 people.

The floors of the dormitories have water heating and the houses have central water heating system. The biggest challenge for us considering this project was to create the necessary documentation which goes according to the byrocacy of the building institutions in Germany.
