VR Video Tour at a China Modular Building Factory

We are very excited to bring you a VR video tour at a China modular building factory. We also had an opportunity to interview their International Business Development manager. Coco Xing talks about the global growth of prefab construction, difficulties international modular and prefab developers face, and the future of the modular manufacturing industry. You can find the transcript below.

Q & A with Coco Xing, International Business Development Manager for a China Prefab Manufacturer

Q: What markets around the world have the most potential for prefab construction?
A: Actually for the prefabricated houses we did a lot of overseas markets like Middle East and European countries like Germany, Norway, and Sweden. We also did some refugee camps in Iraq. I think for our market the Middle East is a very big market.

Q: What are the benefits of sourcing construction materials from China?
A: In China you find a lot of factories or companies who can produce this, and the cost is very low.

Q: What are the biggest challenges for developers when sourcing materials from China?
A: From the overseas markets I understand from my customers they just don’t know how to find good China prefab manufacturer. But they really want to find some good manufacturers because they have big needs.

Q: What has changed since five years ago?
A: It’s become more mature. From the materials to the construction to the ideas.

Q: Why do you think developers, architects and builders haven’t yet utilized prefab to a greater extent?
A: In this industry we have a long way to go. Like the production quality or ideas to make different house styles. Like in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia, they want some houses to have prayer rooms. We also have a long way to go.

Q: What will be some challenges for prefab manufacturers in the coming years?
A: In the coming years the challenges I think, for the global customers, will be the installation. Because some manufacturing companies just do the houses, packaging and shipping container, and just deliver it to the destination port. But they can’t install the house overseas.

Q: Sometimes you work with a local installation team?
A: If the end user has a little bit of knowledge of this industry and of this product. Maybe they don’t know how to install clearly. Even though we send them videos or something, at this time, we send them our technical engineers to help them install the houses.

Q: Do you think a China-based prefab platform like can help Chinese manufacturers and overseas buyers solve problems in these deals?
A: I think this platform is very important. You can find our customers and build a bridge between the customers and us, so they can easily find us and we can easily communicate with them.

We also answer some basic questions about modular buildings:

What is Modular Construction?

Modular construction is a process that can be utilized for permanent or temporary use. Each prefab building is built in a controlled production environment in sections to your specifications. Consistency in production is the key benefit in prefab construction, which allows Icon’s engineers to continually monitor and improve where possible to deliver the best possible building.

Assembly and Installation

All modules are completed offsite and then transported to the site. Each module is set in place by cranes and then connected to the foundation and surrounding modules.

Prefabricated modular buildings are environmentally-friendly, with the all the same architectural aesthetics you would expect from conventional building processes. Since the completion time is greatly, your business can start generating revenue sooner, and accelerate your return on investment.

Temporary Modular Buildings

Need a fast and affordable modular structure? Our temporary modular buildings are ideal for offices, start up businesses, schools, disaster relief, and more. All our temporary prefab buildings are built to code and are inherently designed to outlast your temporary need. Should you need modular construction that is relocatable to another area, even on the same property, then you are welcome to contact us.

Permanent Modular Buildings

Looking for a long term, permanent modular structure? Our modular buildings are built to the same codes as traditional site built buildings. Prefab buildings can be used for many industries and uses including; office buildings, commercial buildings, multi family homes, healthcare labs and offices, and much more. These buildings can be designed in any size, shape, or configuration.
