Although 2020 has been a turbulent year, our prefab house factories have been working non-stop to provide our business clients with new, large, multistorey modular buildings. As we have completed several new projects in 2020, what are we looking forward to in the first months of 2021? Here’s a little scope.
The first terraced houses of Astel Modular in Stockholm
Having completed tens of modular apartment building projects in the Stockholm area, Astel Modular is starting work on the first project consisting of terraced buildings. The volume of the project is approximately 2 000 m2 and it is completed in three stages:
- A terraced building with 7 apartments
- An apartment building with 18 apartments
- A terraced building with 6 apartments
The technical design and planning began in October and the project is expected to be finished and handed over in July of 2021. As you can see, the completing time of a multi-stage project from the initial planning phase to the completed project is well under a year demonstrating both the advantages of modular construction, but also a great collaboration between the customer and the manufacturer.
We started our first installation of a Miljöbyggnad Silver certified project
At the end of last year, we wrote about starting work on a project that had to meet the “Miljöbyggnad Silver” standard. Now the progress on the first building of the project is moving on well, with installation works starting back in November. The whole project is set to be completed in February with the handover planned in March.
The building is not a typical wood-frame prefabricated modular building. The first two floors of the five-storey building have a solid concrete construction, while the other floors are made of prefab wooden frame modules. This is also the reason for a slightly longer installation period than usual.
As mentioned above, this is the first building of a two-building project. The manufacturing of prefab modules for the second building is starting before the end of the year.
Will you give us another reason to get even more excited about 2021?
Even though we currently have our hands full of work, it is the right time to start planning forward! Do you have a large project coming up that would benefit from:
- A fast completion time from planning to handover
- Rigorous process management and quality control with frequent updates
- Staying within the planned schedule
- Lower costs and fewer logistics
Then get in touch with us – let’s plan ahead and create great projects at a lower cost and in less time.
