MODOM‘s products are made of natural, certified materials. The innovative building system, named MHW (Modular Hardware of Wood), fosters the benefits of both a prefab “dry” technology and the modularity. It is designed to build any kind of construction with Structural Insulated Panels.
Buildings become products! Each panel is load-bearing and already insulated, with regard to the performance required. The panels are shipped to the construction site and quickly assembled, thanks to an intuitive assembly scheme.
Architecture becomes evolutive! Thanks to modularity it is possible to draw any type of layout and modify it, even after the construction, in order to add or to mantain only the features that suit best with the current needs.
VALUES THAT LAST OVER TIME
the distinctive features of the MODOM project
RESOURCES AND ENERGY
MODOM wants to give everyone the chance to build their own habitat. This is why it offers state-of-the-art solutions that use recyclable materials and reduce consumption in the bill.
SPEED AND PRECISION
MODOM uses dry solutions, without mortars or glues that need to dry, which guarantee almost perfect control during the construction process and the possibility of rapid delivery for the solutions in the catalog.
QUALITY AND COMFORT
MODOM puts well-being at the centre of its actions, using healthy materials with artistic value, while plant solutions guarantee efficiency and effectiveness. The client has nothing left to do but decide how to customize his architecture.
SAFETY AND CONTROL
The structures built with the MHW system employ certified materials and are guaranteed for up to 30 years. The quality of the investment will be certified and indisputable.

THE MODULAR SYSTEM
MODOM called its building system MHW (Modular Hardware of Wood).
The system consists of prefabricated, multi-layer panels where each finish is customizable.
The size and shape of the panel can vary, in order to accomplish every request, but the best thing is modularity: each panel can be assembled in every direction, so that the real limit for the designer is the imagination!
And it does not end here! Each panel can be dismantled, so no more holes in the wall are dued to maintenance work on electric or water system. It is even possible to change the configuration of your home without getting dirty, by adding or removing a portion of the house, in order to expand or reduce the space of an existing building. It also means it is possible to transport the house elsewhere and re-assemble it!
THE SAME STRUCTURAL PROFILE ALL OVER THE SECTION
The structural floor, wall and roof panels are prefabricated into MODOM’s factory, then they are transported to the construction site. Panels are assembled together, thanks to an error-proof interlocking system, in order to erect a continuous section. The final configuration of the building is given by the combination of several elements, according to schemes and aggregation types, designed during the concept phase.
MODULARITY: ARCHITECTURE BECOMES EVOLUTIVE
The answer to an open question
TRANSPORTABILITY: TO FEEL EVERYWHERE AT HOME
Ready solutions for every land
Behind MODOM there is the revolutionary concept of being always at home.
Do you have to move to work or study away? Do not rent a new house.
Do you want to enjoy a holiday surrounded by wild nature? Do not sleep in a tent.
Do you want to give visibility to your products? Place a pop-up shop at strategic points of the main cities.
With MODOM the house or micro-architecture can travel with you!
Just like a move: the furnitures and the panels, that form the whole structure (or a part of it) are packed.
They are loaded on a common truck and shipped everywhere, even overseas, with no oversize load.
FAREWELL TO THE TRADITIONAL CONSTRUCTION SITE
high standards without surprises
The MODOM’s priority is to reduce contingencies during the construction on site, as they represent costs, that will inevitably affect the final price. The off-site production helps to reduce these costs.
The major benefit of MODOM’s innovation lies in the simplified assembly of the panels. MHW system reduce and simplify the process, as it means to reduce accidents at work and to increase labour productivity.
The size of the modular construction elements are designed to be shipped easily. MODOM does not need to arrange exceptional transports to deliver anywhere you wish to live.
MODOM guarantee every structures built with the MHW system up to 30 years, as it emploies only certified materials. The quality of the investment will be certified and unquestionable.
Every element that forms the modular panel is designed with the perspective of a mass production: the purpose consists of moving as more process as possible from the construction site to the factory (off-site). The large-scale production implies material traceability, high precision, reliable costs and reduced delivery times.
In order to assure the maximum performance and protect the quality of the product, the structural panels and the other elements are packed, and when they leaves the warehouse, panels are safely loaded on trucks.
DELIVERY ON CONSTRUCTION SITE
The dimensions of the structural elements, like the floor, wall and roof panels, are optimized to be loaded into a standard 40-foot container (about 30 square meters). This means an oversize load is not necessary.
The assembly of the structures is simple, fast and intuitive. Each panel is lifted by a crane, positioned with interlocking joints and fastened with screws. Then windows and vapour barriers seal the building, so that the structure is completely protected from water and moisture.
PLUG AND PLAY SYSTEMS
Once the structure is erected, it comes the turn of the hydraulic and eletrical systems. The modular panels already integrate a cavity, where plumbing and wiring can be layed. Even the job of both the electrician and the plumber are simplified, so the bill is less heavy.
READY FOR EVERY CHOICE
The building is quickly completed. The interior and exterior cladding selected by the client are layed. MODOM offers a wide range of products to choose from: different timber species, metals, textiles, ceramics and many more.
THE HOME BECOMES A PRODUCT
everything you need to know
This is the MODOM’s revolution: a building entirely prefabricated in factory (off-site). It becomes a product that can be personalized by the customer, just like if you are buying a car. During the personalization phase, the costs of the building are updated in real time. Once the order has been sent, the production process occur simultaneously, or even before, site and foundation work. Modular construction results in fewer vehicle movements to, from and on the construction site, reducing also transport-related emissions and disruption. Lastly, a very intuitive assembly scheme allow to complete the construction work with simplicity and precision. Each product comes with a user manual, which describes the function the building, the best practies for a proper maintenance, all the quality certifications and the warranty.
