Steel Modular House / Modular House used for a variety of purposes including storage, work spaces
A Steel Modular House is a metal structure fabricated with steel for the internal support and for exterior cladding, as opposed to steel framed buildings which generally use other materials for floors, walls, and external envelope. Steel Modular Houses are used for a variety of purposes including storage, work spaces and living accommodation. They have evolved into specific types depending on how they are used.
They first gained popularity in the early 20th century. Their use became more widespread during World War II and significantly expanded after the war when steel became more available. Steel buildings have been widely accepted, in part due to cost efficiency. The range of application has expanded with improved materials, products and design capabilities with the availability of computer aided design software.
The features of the Steel Modular House:
Fast to manufacture and assemble
Delivers the performance required for even the most demanding environments
Balances budget, aesthetics and performance
Satisfies engineering, acoustic, thermal and seismic requirements
Uses conventional building products just the same as wood and brick
