BRANTFORD, Oct 26, 2023— The construction industry faces persistent challenges related to weather-induced delays, which not only hamper productivity but also inflate project costs. As winter fast approaches, ANC is spotlighting a groundbreaking study from the International Journal of Sustainable Building Technology and Urban Development, which quantifies the potential cost savings for builders employing modular production techniques to counteract extended and costly weather-related delays.  The extreme temperatures can have a significant impact on worker productivity, safety and overall costs. Modular Construction has been identified as a compelling solution in the form of offsite construction, particularly when coupled with innovative solutions like ANC’s proprietary Modular High-Rise System, which further mitigates weather delays beyond typical offsite manufacturing norms.

The research found that concrete work is particularly vulnerable to weather-related disruptions, with a staggering 43% reduction in productivity during the blistery cold winter months, contributing to a significant cost adjustment of 29% on the overall budget. These conditions have long been a source of frustration for developers, leading to inefficiencies and cost overruns in labor-intensive concrete formwork.

ANC’s pioneering approach to construction presents a game-changing solution to these challenges. By utilizing 3D volumetric steel modules as permanent formwork, which are manufactured offsite, ANC ensures that weather-related issues, during harsh winter months, and rainy seasons no longer disrupt the construction process and worker safety. These modules are ready for pouring as soon as they are erected onsite, reducing downtime and ensuring efficient and continuous progression with great attention to human tolerances and the bottom line.

The need for such weatherproofing methods has never been greater, as global temperatures continue to rise, and extreme weather conditions become more prevalent. ANC’s approach not only mitigates the uncertainty of weather related impacts on productivity but also paves the way for more efficient and cost-effective construction processes offsite in a regulated facility, regardless of the weather conditions. This innovation promises a brighter future for the construction industry, where the weather no longer stands in the way of progress making this an ideal solution for tall, super tall and mega tall concrete superstructures  and for developers looking to benefit from the efficiencies of modular construction in high-rise construction with minimal delays and optimized ROI.
