The production of components intended for construction moves from the site to the factory leading to increased production and quality. This all makes it possible to build components with unique and customised design with high technological content. Construction, IoT and Design merge in the new construction 2.0, combining specific know how for the creation of high technology projects followed step by step throughout their design and realisation stages.
Off-site building is a new synthesis between constructions and manufacturing, between broadly consolidated production processes and new digital technologies. The production of components intended for the building industry moves from the factory with an increase in productivity, resulting in cost reduction, better capacity to respect delivery times and the contractual budget.
Off-site construction therefore reduces the intensity of on-site work and allocates it mainly in factory, allowing a reorganisation of technologies and processes aimed at greater efficiency and quality. With the shift of production to the factory and with processes similar to those of industrial production, construction acquires renewed reliability, widely borrowed from the manufacturing sector: each component is checked and certified with significant implications in the maintenance stages of the asset until its demolition.
The elements can be pre-fabricated in-factory with the aim of creating prefabricated structural components that are quick to assemble such as beams and pillars with fixing set-ups, as well as pre-assembled wall or floor elements (2D assembly), up to the assembly of three-dimensional elements such as rooms or entire buildings which are then installed within a few days.
3D prefabrication was applied to the design and construction process of CAPSULE, a modular structure capable of providing flexible solutions to today's needs stemming from the urgency to revisit the concept of the places of modern life, where man seeks beauty, sustainability and ease of use of space and technology.
CAPSULE is a modular structure designed to complement an existing building by increasing the square metres available to people and generating new possibilities of use.
In man-inhabited locations, efficiency and speed, combined with beauty and integrability, create a module able to respond to the new needs arising from the Covid emergency. As a result of its high level of liveability and flexible design, this module can indeed be transformed and relocated.
A pre-assembled light steel bearing structure, completed with diverse cladding solutions and systems, can accommodate a wide variety of activities from the office, residential, retail, park and hospitality world. The need to increase the space available to people in existing buildings generates new safe, comfortable settings related to the outside in multiple ways.
The spaces are designed in order to guarantee a high level of comfort to those who will be inhabiting and using the module, thanks to a schedule of furnishings, finishes, tailored cladding solutions and systems that make it almost completely self-sustainable.
FLEXIBILITY AND SHAPE REARRANGEMENT
As a result of its high level of liveability and flexible design, this module can indeed be transformed and relocated. The study of proportions and relations with the support base results in the creation of a dynamic, solid and pleasant system. The same components can be reused in new ways and relocated
THE DESIGN CONCEPT BEARS IL PRISMA SIGNATURE
Attention to human beings and their ways of experiencing spaces have always been the focus for the design of Il Prisma, chosen by Manni Group as a partner to develop the concept design.
Designing CAPSULE has made it possible to create a modular space capable of fulfilling the customer’s needs in a flexible way whilst proposing new experiences and contexts of use.
LAGO TAILOR-MADE INTERIOR DESIGN
By leveraging CAPSULE modular, flexible and repeatable features, Manni Group identified Lago as the ideal interior design partner that could suit the module in a natural way, as well as enhancing its functionality.
The design operation was mainly focused on a schedule of display and containment items based on the Air (Air Shelf and Air Storage) system that can be freely tailored to customer needs.
