Modular Construction

Beechwood's modular construction system combines the best of both worlds – the speed of a modular structure and the quality of traditional finishing methods.

When people think of Beechwood, they tend to think of new homes built with traditional concrete slab and timber frame construction. But today, Beechwood is much, much more. 

Ascension Living by Beechwood, has developed an innovative modular construction system that does away with the time consuming concrete slab on ground and frames and trusses construction stages adopted in traditional home building construction.

Instead, a structural module is craned into place on top of piers, then the building’s steel structure is completed with pre-fabricated structural elements and the building is secured within a few days (rather than several weeks using traditional building methods).

Construction then continues in the traditional way with internal fixtures, furnishings and features. These are not kits, or shipping containers, or pre-fabricated homes.

The main points of difference are that: 

  • The structure differs from a traditionally built house because of the innovative modular construction system, which allows the home to be constructed much quicker
  • Key items of construction activity are already completed off site, offering significant time savings.
  • Less time is required on site from establishment to lock up stage, meaning less exposure to delaying factors such as bad weather.
  • Fewer trades are required on site to complete construction activities, leading to less disturbance and waste

Beechwood's modular construction system combines the best of both worlds – the speed of a modular structure and the quality of traditional finishing methods.

Modular construction is often well suited to difficult lots. As you would expect, Ascension Living offers a structural guarantee and peace of mind because it is part of Beechwood.
