A Modular Building Construction Patent    

A modular construction system with volume structures. With the system can be saved material, transportation and labor cost and can be created freeform buildings.

Overview

A modular building construction (MBC) provides more accurate construction with volume structures, called modules. Module is a volumetric construction element which is formed by connecting the gratings and the form of a polyhedron. Each module is so designed as to allow interconnection with other modules both in the walls and on floors. This binding occurs through penetration of floors and walls of the modules into one another. Basic principle of MBC, unlike other known similar systems is the penetration of the gratins and not putting on two floors on each other. This unique connection method is a solution which benefits are countless, but most important is that the structure becomes much stronger and that no waste of material associated with duplication of the structure. In traditional modular construction overrun material reaches 30-40%, which is a more expensive finished product. Moreover, the completeness of the floor is binding only in outline, while MBC have connections between the elements is a pre requisite for calculus of the construction of homogeneous, comparable with the construction of separate elements known since antiquity. MBC has other advantages over known systems, it is being built faster, smarter, cheaper, stronger and better. To characterize MBC one needs to look at its constituent elements. MBC is made up of gratings, which in turn are formed by the crossing in two directions, as the angle between them may be equal or different from 90 degrees. Thus the generated gratings are connected in a volumetric structure called a module that has been left vacant slots in the floors and / or walls to connect to another module.

The modules can have different forms, which extends the capabilities of the system and can be produced on-site or off-site. Items can also have different forms: arched, sloped, undulating, etc.. Elements can be of different materials: wood, steel and other materials known at the level of technique. The elements are cut with slots that can be only one side or alternately by both, thus allowing connection of two gratings with one another. The dimensions of the modules are selected so that you do not have oversized transport, thereby saving money on tolls and permits.

Primary Application of the Technology

Modular Building Industry; Residential Buildings; Vacation Homes; Shelters; Pods; Small Homes; Free-form Buildings; Earthquake Resistant Buildings; Hurricane Resistant Buildings; Construction of Low, Medium, and Highrise Buildings.

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Creating of stronger (earthquake and hurricane resistant buildings), less expensive, with posibilities for different forms buildings (freeform and amorph buildings) and usage of wooden material in the structure(eco-friendly buildings).

Competitive Advantage

The advantages of the system to other systems can be classified as:

1. Extremely short time to build.
2. Independence from weather conditions.
3. Much cheaper construction because of lower labor costs, a small amount of materials consumed in comparison with known systems, lower toll.
4. Number of different modules that can be minimized.
5. Functional freedom of architectural design.
6. Much better links between elements, which leads to better structural model of the building.
7. A limited number of different connections.
8. Opportunity to build a different form and function of buildings.
9. Mobility of the modules which are constructed buildings.
10. Possibility of buildings of different materials.
12. Resistance to earthquakes and other external influences, as a consequence of good relations between the elements.
13. Possibility to optimize the sections of the elements.
14. Ability to design low-, medium-and high-rise buildings.
15.Posibility of construction off-site ,or/and on-site.
