Modern prefab houses

Prefabricated houses design

Diffused mainly in northern Europe, such as Germany and Austria, prefabricated houses are slowly taking off even in Italy where they have suffered during a time of mistrust because they are automatically associated with industrial warehouses. In fact there are prefabricated houses that have nothing to envy, in terms of design, to homes constructed with traditional methods. The aesthetics and the attention to details are in fact the centerpiece of this friendly housing environment. The property of these properties is that they are manufactured by assembling previously manufactured items in the factory and in series. The main material is usually wood, but you can also find prefabricated houses made of cement or steel and glass for finishing. If you want a prefabricated design house, among the leading companies there is certainly the Austrian Griffner, which also has offices in Italy. The architecture of the design villas is characterized by timeless elegance and an international style. Griffner also offers design solutions calibrated in detail and tested by years of field experience, combined with design concepts from the global approach.

Ecological prefabricated houses

Prefabricated houses have many positive sides, and among them, there is definitely their deeply ecological nature because they are built respecting the environment and allowing a remarkable energy saving. In fact, thanks to the techniques and materials used, these buildings have a small impact on the environment both during production and assembly and energy saving is provided by construction techniques such as the use of heat-insulating walls, insertion of renewable energy plants, such as photovoltaic panels and pellet stoves. They are therefore in all respects works of green building whose sustainability and environmental compatibility are the fulcrum. Same base as the philosophy of Biohaus, where material quality and passion combine with 20 years of experience in the construction industry. Biohaus offers an extremely personalized product from an architectural point of view and speeds in delivery. The company offers today’s essential qualities such as comfort and environmental health, anti-seismic and fire resistance, high energy savings, all combined with the absence of particular maintenances.

Prefabricated wooden houses

Prefabricated wooden houses are also the most popular for their ecological being. These homes are adapted to the needs of those who live in it, they are bright and spacious and can be equipped with lofts or large windows. The ideal solution for living in harmony with the environment also saves considerable savings on maintenance and maintenance costs, including the cost of heating and summer air conditioning systems. All this guarantees a total well-being of those who live there. For over fifty years, Rubner Haus has been the company that has been one of the first in the construction of wooden houses. Their productions are constantly in the forefront of trying to meet the ever increasing demands that a prefabricated house requires. These include flexibility, energy saving and personalization. The eco-friendly structure of wooden houses Rubner creates an atmosphere of total hospitality and comfort because the materials used are completely natural. This adds a great deal of attention to design and style, creating constructions, such as classic ones, which are a perfect mix of modern and rustic components that give the house a particular and timeless character.

Green-building and prefabricated houses

Prefabricated: The word immediately arouses a sense of precarity, low reliability and often synonymous with low quality and instability. If the term is preceded by the word home, there are several myths to be discarded. For prefabricated houses, you often think of post-earthquake temporary housing solutions, such as containers or bungalows, nothing more wrong. Yes, of course, even those are prefabricated houses, but today more than ever the term indicates homes: advantageous, modular, energy-efficient, beautiful to see and customizable. Italy boasts a long history of masonry and reinforced concrete houses and the prefabricated building has no long tradition behind it, in fact it is limited to the mere construction of industrial warehouses. Lately, however, the Nordic and overseas countries have taken on many solid and strong corporate realities in our peninsula, in order to guarantee quality and long-lasting prefabricated products. The prefabricated house, as the term itself indicates, is born in the factory, is pre assembled in the farm and then assembled in place, with a clear decrease in construction times compared to a traditional dwelling. In addition, thanks to innovative materials and techniques, it ensures high performance, anti-seismic quality, stability and design. If we then dwell on the materials used and construction techniques, then the prefabricated bridges more than other realities the term bio-building. The word stands for a design, constructive, and environmentally friendly management system that aims at energy saving, low production of industrial waste and human well-being. Sustainability, which is found in prefabricated houses when the raw materials chosen for construction are sound and of prime quality and construction and assembly techniques minimize waste production and maximize the energy efficiency of the building, creating an environment healthy and comfortable to live and live.

Prefabricated house costs and timing

The prefabricated house price depends on several factors, such as the complexity of the architectural design, the required size, the degree of insulation, the quality of the material used and the accessibility of the terrain. Usually, since most of the venie elements studied and manufactured at the factory are difficult, they are unforeseen on the site, which then makes the initial estimate more difficult. Usually the price of the property excludes the cost of the foundations, built apart from traditional methodology and leaves out municipal burdens, technical costs, site building and water, light, gas and sewerage services. A price distinction should be made on the raw state and on the keys in hand. In fact, manufacturers can provide the prefabricated house both in the advanced raw stage, where the structure is closed and insulated, provided with exterior doors and windows but without internal installations and finishes, which the buyer will then make part or turn it on , a finished house in all its finishes, ready to get it agility. If we want to define a price range between the minimum and the maximum, we can count on the 1.100,00 and 1.800,00 euros per square meter for a turnkey, excluding foundations, with a saving compared to a traditional home that goes from 20 to 40%. At this price you must add the cost of building land, when this is to be purchased and the delivery costs, which vary according to the kilometer distance between the manufacturer and the installation site. Times of realization? From order to delivery usually go from 30 to 90 days, instead they are 30/60, working days on site.

Prefabricated wooden houses

Speaking of bio-building and prefabricated houses we can not but mention the modern wooden houses. Mostly established housing type, especially outside the national boundaries, even in Italy, more and more often, they choose to build wood. Noble, ancient, ecological, regenerative and durable material, the wood used in the construction of houses has a long history behind, just think of traditional mountain dwellings. The constructive limits of solid wood, which have led over the years to privilege other materials such as c.a. and steel, are now overcome thanks to new construction techniques and new composite materials such as lamellar wood. Prefabricated wooden houses are safe and anti-seismic, thanks to the good material elasticity of the material, they have a high fire resistance, beyond what can be expected, as the carbonization rate of wood is only 0, 7 mm per minute, a time that allows the home to withstand fire for a few hours, giving you the ability to secure people and things. In addition, wood is a good natural insulator, which, if well insulated, can avoid such damaging thermal bridges and ensure high living comfort. There are generally three wooden house construction systems: the Blockhaus system, characterized by completely wood walls, obtained with horizontal overlapping of beams; the chassis, with insulating material interposed between the uprights and the innovative X-Lam system, which uses low-weight solid wood panels. Every prefabricated wooden houses company also has its own catalogs, with many types of buildings and architectural forms to choose from, but it is also possible to completely customize the home, deciding to make its own idea and to build the home of the your dreams.

Prefabricated floating houses

Like modern piles, floating prefab houses are amazing water solutions to the lack of building areas and the problem of overpopulation. In Italy, they have not yet successfully landed, but in other European countries and in the Asian continent, real-life solutions have been studied for real homes moored along river banks and lakes. Floating houses should behave like light rafters and adapt to the flow of water. Careful and particular studies should be carried out on the composition of the liquid element on which the house rests, in order to find the most appropriate structural solution and the most resistant materials for corrosion and corrosion. Some achievements then, with special foundations, can withstand any flooding. The prefabricated floating house represents a whole new way of dwelling and conceiving the house, squeezing the eye to aesthetics and innovation as well. There are so many experiments and prototypes that have been made to date, aiming for light and long-lasting structural packages, new energy production systems and a strong focus on domestic and wastewater recovery. For example, efficient phyto-purification systems have been used in some cases to pre-treat wastewater before being discharged.

Modern prefabricated houses: Prefabricated concrete houses

They are ecological, cost less, delivery times are reduced and are highly customizable: in summary these are the advantages of prefabricated houses. Features all found in prefabricated concrete houses that can be constructed both in reinforced concrete and lightweight concrete with structure incorporating pillars. The roofs can be in wood, aluminum or metal. This kind of prefabricated houses are characterized by a high degree of flexibility because they do not create any problems for any future changes. Even those in concrete are highly performing properties because the concrete due to its high density is a material with high thermal inertia, suitable for slowing the flow of summer heat to the interior of the house and accumulating heat in the winter period, and then releasing it . In practice, it uses the thermal mass both as a contribution to heating and cooling. This is based on the production carried out by ABC Construction, a company specializing in the design and manufacture of reinforced concrete prefabricated houses, which underlines the fact that raw materials with a very low carbon footprint are used in concrete. This therefore minimizes the environmental impact of concrete prefabricated.

Concrete prefabricated houses are usually made of lightweight special cement, in which: load-bearing walls and divisors, roofs and roof parts are manufactured at the factory and then finished on site. The roof can also be made of wood and exposed, for a better aesthetic performance. They are safe, solid, anti-seismic and flexible, with the ability to make internal changes over time. They differ from industrial prefabs for architectural shapes and finishing touches and for the high possibility of personalizing the aesthetic profile and details. The implementation times and the costs are reduced compared to a traditional home and if well insulated, the reinforced concrete houses provide excellent energy savings up to a 45% savings on the bill.
