Construction: Environmental Impact
An environmental impact is defined as any change to the environment, whether adverse or beneficial, resulting from a facility’s activities, products, or services. In other words it is the effect that people’s actions have on the environment.
The primary impacts of concern in an energy dependent society often come as a result of our energy use. Construction and housing is an enormous contributor to these effects.
Block Building with self complete units answers this problem
MBUs hold intrinsic and unique qualities to segment the construction process into self-completed and valuable building units allowing for complete surface finishes, utilities, insulation, structural integrity and allowance for seismic and other qualities within.
Little to no waste is generated in its manufacture or assembly, and little energy is required to heat the resulting structures. “Mechanized Building Units or MBUs”, are suitable for rapid construction by ordinary cranes, manual labour and construction by our more advanced mechanized (robotic) means.
The compartmentalization of the building and design process into smaller self-completed “MBUs” or Mechanized Building Units, allows for handling of the heavy components for the construction of buildings of any size and configuration by “smart” cranes and ordinary cranes, and in rare cases even manual labour, to place these MBUs or blocks in position and thus to complete a construction to a high level of quality both in structural engineering (finite Element) and finish. Further the intrinsic quality of separateness of units and geometry and specific materials allows for a value to be ascribed to a single MBU, “unit” or “block”.
With high speed, extreme accuracy and virtually zero waste, construction and housing is in for positive change.
