4Modular construction methods1.IntroductionThe presence of technological advancements is leading to changes in different sector. Newmethods of carrying out activities are being invented and the construction industry is going gthrough the same revolution. Many of the challenges, which are being experienced in thetraditional construction methods, are nowadays being solved through the acquisition of themodular construction methods. By definition, modular construction methods are which usesmodules to complete the construction of structures (Moeller, 2015). These modules areconstructed and manufactured off-site and then delivered on site to complete the assembling. Themodular construction is a small part of prefabricated building methods, which felt on factoriesfor the manufacturing of the key construction parts. Different materials have been accepted inAustralia and worldwide market in the aim of enhancing the modular construction technology.Permanent modular construction is one of the key method, which is being used to enhance thetechnology. This paper will be able to look at different modular construction methods andanalyze their pro and cons and the technological advancements, which are happening concerningthe methods. Modular construction methods are able to conform to available codes and buildingtechniques, which are available in the industry.The methods are able to differ in terms of the overall cost and different aspects during theconstruction process (Amine, 2017). This paper will be able to analyze the methods on suchaspects. Lastly, the paper will make a viable conclusion on the beat method, which can beadopted on different projects. Additionally, the paper will analyze the environmentalperformance of the materials and techniques in the technological advancement. This will focuson the comparison of the use of these materials in modular construction and the traditional
