ASSENT launches modular buildings solution at The Big 5
ASSENT serves a wide array of projects in the UAE and abroad, including landmark developments such as Al Maktoum Stadium, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, and the forthcoming Dubai Hills Mall
Al Shafar Steel Engineering (ASSENT), one of the largest steel fabrication and erection companies in the GCC and part of ASGC Group, is launching its new pre-fabricated modular building during The Big 5.
Modular building offers a fast, efficient, eco-friendly and affordable alternative to traditional building methods, ideally suited for rapid growth in the UAE and beyond.
Made from light-gauge steel, pre-fabricated modular buildings are constructed offsite in a factory setting before being transported and assembled on-site. This is done under controlled plant conditions using the same materials, designed to the same codes and standards, as conventionally built facilities. In this methodology, buildings are produced in “modules” that when put together on site reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built facilities without compromise.
This methodology allows several activities to happen in parallel, dramatically decreasing project delivery timelines with an average reduction of between 40-50% for large-scale projects. A modular building approach can also reduce project build budgets by as much as 30-40 per cent.
Amr Ali, ASSENT Managing Partner, said: “The scale of construction work in the UAE, and across the wider region, has brought about the need for faster, more flexible, and convenient solutions that enhance the building process. Pre-fabricated modular building fits the bill perfectly. We believe this is the most rational development of the construction sector, falling in line with the fast pace of life and the high standards of living we all enjoy in the UAE. Modular solutions are flexible enough so that with smart planning, innovative designs, and powerful capabilities, all building types of any size can be accomplished.”
Modular construction can be used for all types of buildings—single or multiple stories—such as residential, offices, educational, healthcare, warehouses, and bathroom and kitchen pods.
Today ASSENT serves a wide array of projects in the UAE and abroad, including landmark developments such as Al Maktoum Stadium, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, and the forthcoming Dubai Hills Mall.
