wedi modular construction elements – a more sustainable approach to construction.
When it comes to construction efficiency, modular building is quickly becoming the new industry standard. As designers look for more sustainable designs for improved environmental impact, modular construction is inherently a natural fit.
Environmentally-friendly projects that don’t sacrifice quality or style – modular construction offers a more sustainable solution for both residential and commercial development. Not only does this method of building bring projects to completion faster, but results in improved quality management throughout the construction process with significantly less activity and waste on site. Modules when put together, reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built facility – without compromise.
Building materials will be present in buildings for decades thus the choice of material should be given careful consideration. The blue XPS core of wedi elements is manufactured with an environmentally friendly propellant agent and is recycled around the clock meaning that every wedi element is made of at least 25 per cent recycled foam. Environmental Product Declarations show a product‘s environmental footprint – the components of wedi products, the XPS foam core, the cement coating and the glass fibre reinforcement, already have their own EPDs.
Using the best quality sustainable building materials will ensure that the building will be kind to the environment throughout its life span. wedi contributes to this mission, by offering eco-friendly modular systems for the renovation or building of bathrooms and/or wet rooms.
wedi products are lightweight and simple while at the same time robust and loadbearing (133kg/m² vertically) and most importantly produce very little dust when worked on. The 100 per cent watertight and thermally insulating ready-to-tile components together with the industry famous sealing accessories provide unparalleled system security.
Sustainable constructions from start to finish – functional wall structures in a characteristic T-shape to mark out toilet, shower or washing areas are just as possible as a compact partition e.g. with a shower on one side and a wash stand on the other. A shower cubicle in a typical U-shape with ready-to-connect ceiling modules, including inset light spots, a rain shower or loud speakers, as well as completely free structures can be developed to suit any room and be delivered ready-to-assemble to the installation site.
The degree of prefabrication can be freely selected: from factory fitted power cables, hot and cold supply pipes through load-bearing reinforcements, cable ducts and empty conduits to ready-to-use technical components and fittings. Each module is custom-made, assembled in the wedi factory and subjected to a thorough test before delivery.
