Winter weather this year has affected construction flow and schedules in many regions around the world. “Work vehicles get stuck in the snow, batteries are drained dead in equipment, and materials often have a negative reaction to sub-zero temperatures.” These delays leaves the negative influence of the potential project return on investments (IRR). The quality also may suffer.
Concrete is one of the materials that is hard to predict during the winter weather. Although there are several methods not to stop the construction, there is still the risk, that those won’t work. “Pouring concrete is delayed anytime it gets too cold, according to Darrell Bailey from Morton Building, a firm that specializes in metal buildings of all sorts.”
In case of modular construction technology, the above mentioned factors are not the reasons to stop construction. That is because of the fact that almost 90% of works for building the modules are finished under the rood in the factory, away from inclement weather. Furthermore installation takes less time, by giving the cost and time savings for on site works. “The developer, building owner or designer of the project containing an old stick built elevator will just simply have to wait for the thaw to finish the job, where the modular elevator has been completed and will be in place and ready to go in a matter of weeks.”
In Nordic Homes experience there are also several projects done in winter time, by keeping track on project schedules and quality of works. Some examples are SPA Hotel in Aizpute, Latvia and townhouses in Rydeback, Sweden.
