Spacebox: Modular houses may be a low carbon alternative



Spacebox: Modular houses may be a low carbon alternative
The superior standard of insulation in modular houses means they have "fewer faults and leaks" than ordinary homes, according to the director of Spacebox.

The director of Spacebox has asserted that superior insulation standards in modular homes mean they have "fewer faults and leaks" than regular homes.

According to John Fitzgerald, the production process of modular homes means that less landfill waste is generated when compared to onsite construction, generating fewer carbon emissions.

Meanwhile, he asserted that the factory production process ensures that there are "fewer areas where you've got weak insulation points".

"The insulation quality tends to be far superior to anything built on site," he added.

It is thought that modular housing is gaining in popularity, with global prefabricated housing shipments set to reach 836,000 by 2010, according to figures from AZoBuild.com.

Of these, it is thought shipments from the US account for 25.83 per cent of the global total.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18571891-ADNFCR
