The benefits of modular construction – how much can you save?

The benefits of modular construction can be divided into three categories: design, construction and use. For designers, modularity means simplicity, as the modules integrate technical building systems, among other things. You can read more about this in our blog post on design based on modularity. In addition, prefabricated bathroom modules reduce work phases on construction […]

Fira Modules 2.0 was designed in a consortium together with designers and user representatives. The main theme of the design work was the idea of a world-class bathroom module that will have […]

In the construction process, bathrooms are usually designed for one apartment or site at a time. A large number of details must be taken into account, as bathrooms involve several aspects of technical building systems. It must be ensured that space is resistant to humidity and that the sewer system works. Attention must also be […]

Fira is now introducing a new service, a bathroom pod equipped with technical building systems, which are considered to be the most demanding aspect of construction. Our pods are more than just modular elements: we wanted to integrate modular thinking into the process as early as […]

We at Fira are inquisitive: we like to peek over the neighbour’s fence and see what we could do differently. Modular construction (don’t stop now – we’ll explain the term in more detail) has become more widespread in the world over recent years, but in Finland, things have remained quiet on this front. We sent […]
