Sustainability not only marks the future in the construction of new homes, but also provides new economic models that support the financial future of families. In this sense, industrialized houses are proposed as the success of the homes in the future in many ways.
The reduced deadline, a better projects execution, a maximum level of personalized homes, the precision of the finishes, the application of new technologies, the levels of air quality and the high level of economic savings make industrialized houses easier for acquisition and the best option not only in terms of sustainability, but also from an integral future completely adapted to the times that are to come.
The Industrialized Houses solve the problems of Sustainability and Health.
We are living the first middle quarter of the 2021 and we are still immersed, in an environment of uncertainty that continues to arouse concern about moving by leaps and bounds towards a new course in which greater visibility is predicted for a future of greater balance, stability and certainty.
Health has been indisputably the main theme of 2020 but it is not the only issue that keeps our society’s alarms awake.
Concern for our planet’s natural reserves and energy resources continues to be a globally alarming issue that, although the health crisis had left in recession during the last year, with a view to the near future construction, habitability, economy and balance of the entire societies that point to the same place, sustainability.
From the Spanish urban agenda, state housing plans, bank financing and the 2030 and 2050 objectives of the European Union, sustainability is established as the only future for next generations in the entire world.
The reality aspiration is to reduce the figures that today define construction as statistics on consumption and expenditure energy. The reality today is that buildings consume 42% of the planet’s energy resources and generate 35% of greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union.
Among the main responsible for these statistical numbers is the use of highly polluting materials that not only do not allow their recycling, but also require large amounts of energy to handle during the entire construction process; from its production, transport and for sure, its maintenance.
Among the most polluting materials, Concrete stands out, which, according to the article in The Guardian, is responsible for 7% of Carbon Dioxide emissions throughout the planet. This high level of energy expenditure and waste production has been one of the main causes in which the construction sector contributes to a great extent to global warming and the consumption of the planet’s natural resources and in this situation, industrialized houses become a great solution.
Industrialized houses are the solution to the problems in the future.
This reality leads the construction industry to face two great challenges that mark the new paradigm on construction and the future of new housing. The demand for sustainable infrastructure and the creation of new technologies in search of sustainable solutions and materials have caused the construction sector to open up to a world of new talents that inspire the creation of new technologies that help it to achieve a great challenge.
“Industrialized houses are the result of combining construction and sustainability where building and living are part of the same exercise.”
Faced with this situation, the development of new materials and products of greater versatility that allow at the same time practical and aesthetic functions or the creation of software, new methodologies such as BIM or 3D printed super structures turn out to be less and less futuristic solutions and more reality.
Thanks to the laws imposed by governments around the world and international organizations, standards and certifications arise that advocate controlling building systems with the intention of reducing the deterioration of the environment. As we mentioned in previous articles, the BREEAM Classification, the LEED System or the Green System among many others, seek to reduce the high impact of environmental deterioration by facilitating the construction of new buildings and the rehabilitation of buildings that incorporate new less polluting use systems.
In front of this situation and linked with the pandemic environment, 2021 is defined by significant attention to the future of construction as housing. At this point, the Passivhaus Certification takes on an important role in the manufacture of industrialized houses and is here to stay and meet the demands that the European Directive 2010/31 defines in relation to the energy efficiency of new works and buildings rehabilitation. And it is not surprising, since Passivhaus constructions manage to reduce energy consumption by up to 75% through the simple optimization of existing resources.
Taking completely advantage of solar radiation, ventilation and insulation systems and the optimal orientation, create an atmospheric condition of maximum comfort that supposes at the same time a highly considerable energy saving.
