With the use of Modular Technology, Institutions are able to offer more vacancies in less construction time
Due to the rapid need for expansion, several schools and universities have used the Modular Technology solution in the expansion of their Institutions. For ease of construction, in which a unit of up to three floors can be ready in up to 15 working days, for example, technology has been increasingly adopted as a quick solution for creating spaces.
The designs are assembled from metallic structures and termo acoustic panels, which guarantee protection from heat and noise. Without requiring some building permits, the modules are embedded in the place where they will be assembled and can be used in temporary or fixed installations.
The technology, which has emerged in Europe and has grown more and more in Brazil, presents several advantages, such as modification of the project at any time, agility in the assembly and delivery of the project, less waste of materials, among others.
One of the great differentials in the modular projects is in the service of maintenance of the equipment without additional cost to the renter. “In addition to being a facilitator in the operation of the school, this inclusion allows the administrative staff of the Institution not to worry about hiring qualified professionals for preventive and corrective maintenance, since when renting such equipment, maintenance is added to the package”, informs Claudia Rodrigues, commercial director of NHJ do Brasil, a pioneer company in the leasing of these equipments in the country.
Compliance with standards and legislation
The equipment also meets all types of regulations and current legislation. Another important point is that they have a very long life. “At the end of the use, in the case of the lease, they are disassembled and used again in other constructions,” she emphasizes.
In the municipality of São José dos Campos, in São Paulo, for example, the solution found to open a school in the face of the delay in passing on funds for construction was the use of modular technology. In general, 70 coupled modules were used, occupying an area of 1050m². The school serves about 800 students from 1st to 9th grade.
In another situation, a university in Rio de Janeiro had its rooms partially destroyed due to a fire and used the modular construction as a temporary facility so that students did not lose part of the school year. The one-story space was designed to accommodate a large number of students, support area and toilets.
