Capital Bay and Daiwa launch website on the future of construction
Berlin, 11. May 2022
Capital Bay and Daiwa House Modular Europe have launched a new website. The website, www.creatingthefuture.eu, is addressing cities, municipalities, investors and the general public to present the benefits and progress of modular construction in Germany and to provide information on how industrially prefabricated building modules can contribute to sustainability and climate protection objectives.
"The German government is planning to build 400,000 new homes per year to meet the urgently needed supply and remove pressure from the tight local housing markets. Without modular construction, this target will not be achievable as the design and construction processes are too slow, “ says George Salden, CEO of Capital Bay. "Prefabricated building modules can reduce construction time by 30 to 50 percent compared to conventional construction processes. In addition, the modules installed are reusable, which means that at the end of their life cycle they can be deconstructed, reprocessed and put to a new use. This results in around 50 percent less CO2 emissions, which significantly increases ESG compliance."
“With our new website we want to raise awareness and introduce potentials to the construction method of the future,” says Harry van Zandwijk, CEO at Daiwa House Modular Europe. “From our point of view, modular, industrial and ultimately digital construction is the building form of the future and an important means of meeting the demand for affordable, high quality and sustainable housing. Modular construction has developed into a high-quality construction method and is highly regarded for its architecture, use of materials and quality. In terms of energy, the projects also meet the latest standards of the 40plus efficiency house class.”
Capital Bay and Daiwa House Modular established a strategic partnership in October last year with the aim of building a joint gigafactory for the production of up to 50,000 building modules per year.
