What is modular construction?

Modular design is an approach that uses a system of smaller parts (modules) to drive multiple functionalities. Modules are fastened together to create residential, commercial, or other buildings. This modular design allows for a variety of configurations and styles, with customized size and uses.

How are QUBE modular buildings constructed?

As with any building, QUBE buildings are built from the ground up. While the site work foundation and servicing are carried out, the QUBE building modules and components are fabricated and finished in factory. When the site preparation is completed, QUBE building modules are transported to site for final assembly and commissioning. On-site assembly is fast and quiet, producing minimal disruption to the surrounding neighbourhood.

  1. Foundations, utility and general site conditions are prepared.
  2. Building components are constructed in a secure offsite location in parallel to the site work.
  3. QUBE modules are delivered directly to the project site, stacked and secured to both the foundation walls and to each other.
  4. Built-in electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems are conveniently connected.
  5. Transition sections between modules are installed.
  6. A superior, steel and concrete building, which appears as a conventional structure, is erected in one-third of the time required to build using conventional methods 

Imagine the biggest “Lego®” set that you have ever seen!


What are the building size limitations with modular construction?

QUBE buildings are configurable to any depth and width, and up to 15 floors high.

Can QUBE buildings be customized?

Definitely. QUBE buildings can be designed by architects into a myriad of possibilities including cantilevered and terraced designs, and finished with a wide array of building envelopes and roof lines. Suite finishing and appliances can be customized by individual suite to any level of finish required by the project plans.
