Exploring the potential of modular construction in the Gulf

Modular construction is an emerging trend in the Middle East.

What is modular construction?

Modular construction is an emerging trend in the Middle East. But what exactly is it? The innovative technique takes construction away from the hustle and bustle of a typical building site and places it in a controlled factory setting. The built elements are then transported to the designated site and assembled there.

With this approach, a construction project enjoys improved efficiency, thanks to better management of processes under a single roof. What is more, modular construction sections, or ‘modules’, adhere to the same standards as traditional construction, with the prefabricated components using materials that would commonly be found on a conventional site. The result? A building that mirrors the original design intent and specifications of its architect.

Modular construction presents a promising solution to the complexity of on-site construction. It is also a step towards a smarter and more efficient future for the construction industry in the Gulf, one that is being embraced with open arms. Indeed, the permanent modular construction industry topped $2.9 billion in GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries in 2020 and reached $3.4bn in 2023. This growth is expected to continue, with the local industry forecast to reach nearly $5 billion by 2029.
