Completion of Modular Housing Project, Philippines

The need for innovative housing solutions has never been more pressing in a country as dynamic as the Philippines, where rapid urbanisation and diverse geographical challenges are ever-present. We are immensely proud to announce the completion of our pioneering modular housing project in Cavite, Philippines. This landmark development represents a monumental step forward in addressing the critical housing shortage for informal settler families and low-to-medium-income earners across the nation. Our achievement showcases our commitment to providing sustainable and affordable housing and sets a new standard in the construction industry, highlighting the transformative potential of modular housing solutions.

Project Overview

Set on a 4-hectare private property, this development features 53 two-storey row houses and one two-storey duplex house, all constructed using 110 modular precast concrete units. Our innovative Safe Affordable Modular Housing Technology (SAMHT) was crucial in ensuring the project’s success, offering a robust, economical, and scalable solution for mass housing.  With this socialised housing project we provided above-standard yet affordable housing options to lower and middle-class Filipinos, whereby residents can access long-term financing and other benefits, ensuring that more families have safe, secure, and affordable homes.

Addressing the Housing Crisis

The Philippines faces an escalating housing crisis, with a current shortage of 6.5 million homes expected to soar to 22 million by 2040. These statistics represent millions of families living in substandard conditions, struggling to find adequate shelter. To combat this pressing issue, the Department of Human Settlement and Urban Development has been actively partnering with local government units, government financing institutions, and the private sector. Our collaboration is a prime example of these efforts, showcasing how joint expertise and resources can make a substantial difference. The modular housing project in Cavite is a testament to what can be achieved through such partnerships, offering a scalable and efficient solution to the housing crisis.

The Power of Modular Construction

BEC Modular offers versatile prefabricated units tailored for a multitude of applications, from low-rise housing to towering high-rises, modern schools, and bustling commercial buildings. Unlike traditional construction methods, modular units are prefabricated structures manufactured off-site in controlled environments, then transported and assembled on-site. Think of them as building blocks, meticulously crafted to fit together seamlessly, offering unparalleled precision and efficiency.


Construction Process

The construction process began with laying robust foundations to ensure the stability and longevity of the structures. Once the foundations were set, the modular precast concrete units were carefully hauled to the site and erected with precision. The assembly involved the welding of precast joint seal connectors to secure the units together, followed by concrete sealing and weatherproofing of joints to protect against environmental factors. The finishing works included installing floors, doors, windows, and stairs, as well as comprehensive plumbing and electrical installations. This meticulous process ensured the structural integrity of the buildings and provided residents with fully functional and comfortable living spaces.

The SAMHT Advantage

Our SAMHT technology is at the forefront of revolutionising the construction industry. These monolithic steel-reinforced modular concrete structures are engineered to withstand extreme weather conditions, including 350kph typhoons and earthquakes exceeding a Richter Scale 7+ magnitude. This resilience, combined with the technology’s efficiency and cost-effectiveness, makes it an ideal choice for large-scale housing projects.

Scalable Innovation

Our technology is designed to scale seamlessly, catering to projects of all sizes and complexities. From a cozy residential community to a sprawling commercial complex, our modular units bring your vision to life with unmatched precision and efficiency. From housing to schools to commercial buildings, our technology knows no bounds. Its flexible design allows for seamless integration into any project, ensuring that every structure benefits from the latest advancements in construction technology.

Quality You Can Trust

Precision forming technology ensures very low construction tolerance, resulting in superior quality and durability. In a region prone to natural disasters, such as earthquakes and typhoons, this level of structural integrity is invaluable.

As we celebrate this achievement, we take pride in our success in Cavite. This project stands as a testament to the transformative power of modular housing technology, showcasing its potential to build stronger communities and improve lives. We look forward to delivering more innovative and affordable housing solutions across the Philippines and beyond.
