Modular Building

Manufacture

Client suport in the review of product design to generate the most efficient factory based manufacturing process for all elements of modular built accomodation. Working alongside the architectural design teams in a simultaneous engineering approach, employing design for manufacture (DFM) and lean principles to generate the optimum manufacturing solution that recognises and employs the appropriate levels of automation at the outset of the program whilst planning and protecting for growth over the program lifespan.

Assembly

Working with the client teams to maximise the modular manufacturing build learning at the construction site. Employing design for assembly (DFA) principles to effectively productionise the on site construction of the modular accomodation. Design and development of processes and tooling as required to increase the on site effectiveness and efficiency.

Automation

Define an approriate level of automated solutions, in line with programme growth curve to achieve cost and delivery targets.

Handling

Develop a flow line concept where product and volumes permit. Input into design to ensure efficient handling provision is designed in that will carry through all stages of modular accomodation build.

Welding and joining

Intoduce effective flexible automated joining solutions formodular frame assemblies.

Assembly

Applying lean priciples to the design of the final assembly solution we will incorporate flexible automated stations where appropriate. Adopting a phased development and deployment in line with projectd programme volume growth.

Design and development of processes and tooling as required to increase the on site effectiveness and efficiency.
