What do we mean when discussing using industrialised systems to construct a house?

We often consider these systems soulless, cold processes requiring more careful design attention. Without going any further, the very definition of the Oxford Dictionary helps us have this misconception. Industrialising is “to introduce industry into (an area) on a large scale. Synonyms: automated · business · factory-made · in industry · machine-made.”

To fully grasp the value of industrialisation and its advantages over traditional construction, avoiding terms that might seem unfamiliar is essential. Instead, let’s focus on what we gain when we choose industrialisation:

    • 01

      Optimisation of the design processes, in which all the necessary aspects are defined in terms of the project’s volume, materiality, functionality and economy. We work as a team, coordinating all the processes.

    • 02

      Reduction of execution times. A large part of the process is carried out in the factory according to previously established standards.

    • 03

      Process control. The same professionals within its facilities always produce certain parts of the house.

    • 04

      Care for the environment. We like to call it the ‘sustainable wheel‘. By constructing the house’s structure in the factory, we optimise time and reduce on-site waste, material, and people displacement. This leads to a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to conventional construction sites.

Our Ubiko brand, unlike many others in the sector, stands out for the advantages of industrialised systems and our unique approach. We don’t adhere to catalogue architecture. Instead, we start from a common base, but each design is customised for our clients, with every piece studied and executed uniquely. This is all made possible by the benefits of industrialisation, which we leverage to develop the architecture we believe is human, responsible, and honest.
