Modular Buildings Helping Manage Covid 19 Crisis

We all know the world's current health situation. The epidemic (Covid 19) has broken out all around the world and every country is trying its best to fight it. Every country is fighting in its own way. Some countries like Russia, China, and European countries are trying to make a vaccine to get out of this situation.

Some countries are building as many health centers as possible to help people out of this situation. Overall we can say that there is a bad situation prevailing all around the globe. People are dying, the hospital doesn't have enough beds to admit patients, and countries like India are running out of medical oxygen. In this situation, one of the most important things the world needs after the vaccine is health centers. And in this article, we are going to talk about how modular buildings are helping out in this covid crisis.

Let's start with a basic definition. What is actually a modular building? To understand how modular buildings are helping, you have to understand a modular building. World modular means a part or a section. A modular building is constructed in different stages and sections. Each and every section is installed in the building once the outer skeleton of the building completes.

These sections are called modules. These modules can be installed by stacking them or by placing them side-by-side. After stacking or placing the module in position these modules are connected with each other. This process is called interconnection. After the interconnection, modular building is ready to be used.

These buildings are used to set up an ordinary camp. The camp could be a military camp for military drills or it could be a health camp. Modular buildings are also used to provide services like a mobile cafe, restaurant, or toilets. The modular building style is really popular for its portability. Modular buildings and camps can easily be settled or removed in this way save a lot of precious time. It also helps to provide the services at any place and in the shortest time possible.

Now we should move towards the question that how modular buildings are helping in managing the Covid 19 crisis. So here are some of the factors discussed

Speedy Construction

One of the most important factors which are helping in this Covid crisis is the speedy construction of modular buildings. Modular buildings are not like ordinary buildings; like in ordinary buildings, we have to construct the floor before we should construct the walls and ceiling of a room. But in modular buildings walls, floor, ceiling, and every other thing are constructed at the same time. After construction, these modules are integrated with each other.

In this way, a modular building saves a lot of precious time, money, and labor which an ordinary building does not save.

Mobile Services

Now we are going to talk about the most important thing for which modular buildings are well known. It's the mobility or portability of modular buildings. First of all, it is clear from the above paragraph that speedy construction means services will be provided as early as possible. Know we are talking about the mobility of the modular building.

A modular building can be established or moved to another place within no time because the modular building is not actually constructed on the ground. It is constructed in sections and those sections are integrated together. We just have to separate those sections or modules and transport them to any other place where you want to construct the modular building.


So, scalability is another factor that is helping a lot in this Covid crisis. Scalability means that modular buildings can be easily expanded if needed. You see in this crisis we the doctors have to deal with thousands of patients daily. They need space; they need tents and buildings to admit the patients. In this way, a modular building can easily be expanded if more space is required.

Eco-Friendly Building

Modular buildings are actually very environmentally friendly in process of their construction. It is due to the fact that modular buildings are not constructed at the construction site like ordinary houses are. But it is constructed in modules as discussed earlier and these modules are constructed separately in industries far away from the residential areas.
