MODOM is an architecture company with the focus on improving the quality of people’s life, through the provision of design and project management services during every construction phase.
MODOM deals with the design and development of new housing models, so that the construction activity is economically sustainable, respectful of the environment and in harmony with the cultural heritage of each community. This task is carried out through:
– the relentless search for innovative, natural and recyclable materials;
– the careful selection of the most advanced construction techniques;
– the meticulous study of buildings identity;
– performance and function planning;
Through close collaboration with experienced companies in the sector, MODOM translates the customer’s expectations into reality, supporting the latter in every stage of the construction process, from the initial concept design till the delivery of the keys.
THE BUILDING TAKES SHAPE
technology and design
In every project, MODOM prefer to use “dry” building systems, which consist of fastening systems made through joint connections or mechanical fastening systems, such as bolts and screws. Indeed, those systems allow an immediate fastening and do not require any drying times, as it happens with mortar or glue. Structural elements are completely prefab in-house and even the transportation and the on-site installation are planned earlier, in order to avoid any unexpected event.
THE BUILDING’S CONFIGURATION
MODOM’s buildings used to be modular, meaning they are made of standard elements, that can be replicated on a large scale. Modularity allows to configure the building like in a game: the shape, the glass walls, finish materials and so on. Modularity does not limit the product customization and also allows to coordinate the supply chain in a perfect way.
THE SUPPLY CHAIN
In order to achieve high quality standards, it is essential to involve specialized companies and professionals, since the construction requires a lot of different expertise. Once the project is detailed, MODOM coordinates every actor of the supply chain: from the assembly center to gardening.
reduced times and certified quality
The industrialization of the construction process implies to conduct in-house as many activities as possible. In this way, it is possible to produce on a large scale standard elements with high precision, clear times and minor assembly times. Automation wipes error possibilities off the production process in flavor of certain performance.
During the development of modular elements, it is fundamental to take into account transportation: road regulations and international shipping standards cannot be ignored. In this way, the loads are optimized in terms of volume and weight, while movements are reduced to minimum, since transportation is a source of emission and an inefficient cost, that gives no further value to the building.
At the end of the production, buildings parts are packed properly and shipped to the building site, in order to be installed. In this way, it is possible to ship abroad in a very efficient way, since a 40 foot container may store the structural elements that are necessary to build 540 sq ft house.
FAREWELL TRADITIONAL BUILDING SITE
high standards, no bad news
EASY ON-SITE ASSEMBLY
The structure mounting is simple, quick and intuitive, thanks to joint connections and mechanical fastening systems, which grant a simple and immediate fixing. Structural elements may be lifted by a light crane, so the rental of heavy machinery is not necessary. A rapid mounting implies also an immediate protection for the structure of the building against bad weather and moisture.
PLUG AND PLAY SYSTEMS
During the the project development, designer sets also shafts for the laying of wiring and plumbing. In this way, the installation is much quicker and cleaner, since it is not necessary to drill the wall or the floor. Once the system installation is complete, it remains only to connect the building to the national electric and water grid and test the systems.
The final thouch implies the installation of finish materials and potential furnishing. Thanks to a wide network of partners and to a never-ending research for innovative materials, MODOM offers countless solutions to pick from, in order to customize your own building, in terms of aesthetics and performance.
