Modular construction - or offsite construction - is a construction method in which parts of the building, such as the facade, wet rooms, or other pre-fabricated building components are used. The construction projects are assembled according to the modular principle - various elements are therefore constructed in a factory and assembled on-site.

Sika can supply everything from standard construction variants to more advanced time-saving solutions applied by pumps and robots.

3. Wet Room Applications

Using modular bathroom pods lowers construction costs by reducing construction time, improving quality and reducing on-site rework. With traditional building, a multitude of trades need to be well-coordinated to complete the bathroom installation. This requires a high degree of supervision and management on site to ensure correct sequencing and quality of work from plumbers, electricians, tilers, sealant applicators, interior designers, carpenters, and other specialists.

Bathroom pods eliminate most of these issues. Savings from waste, reduced construction times and improved quality result in better performance during use, cost savings and earlier income streams from the project. Bathrooms built in a factory offer fewer defects and allow the bathroom pod manufacturer the ability to research and implement aesthetic and functional innovations to improve the bathroom pod quality.

For bathroom pods and wet rooms, including in shipping and offshore constructions with IMO qualified solutions, Sika provides expertise with a wide range of products and systems.
