Modular Construction is Changing the Way the World Builds
Build naturally, faster and smarter with STEKO®.
More and more people would like to build and live differently. They would like to have good solid houses with high living quality and reasonable initial and maintenance costs. However, they would also like to build in a way that neither their own living quality nor the possibilities of subsequent generations are affected. This new kind of construction is future proof. It combines renewable resources with the most modern technologies and merges economy and ecology.
People used to associate modular building systems with pre-fabricated kit homes, temporary, box-like or just boring. Perhaps for you, the word “modular” may have images of work-site accommodation or flimsy portable classrooms. This way of thinking isn’t wrong, as up to recent years, this has often been the case. However, permanent prefabricated construction like STEKO® has completely revolutionized modular building.
STEKO® allows creative architectural freedom and individuality to be maintained while enjoying all the benefits of a modular system.
STEKO® is a logical modular building system based on latest technology allowing sustainable construction, which meets the highest requirements regarding stability, earthquake safety, durability, comfort and design flexibility.
STEKO® is a kit system, which opens up completely new dimensions for the home owners, planners, architects and builders. It has never been as easy to build solid, healthy and ecologically valuable houses.
STEKO® reduces the planning effort and increases the creative scope. The CAD-supported planning works with a simple basic framework, which allows huge design flexibilities due to fine increments – 16 cm horizontally and 8 cm vertically. Due to the new push-fit fitting the modules create a statically detectible unit and a massive, unmovable combination in a wall.
For the further design of the interior and the exterior the logical modular building system provides the planner, architect and home owner with every possible liberty. In the interior, the walls may be kept visible or they may be clad using the traditional interior materials such as plaster or wood material panels. The exterior facade may be created using back-ventilated materials or compact plastering systems. Planning and building with STEKO® saves time and money.
STEKO® modules are incredible easy to build with. They are lightweight and very easy to handle, with the standard module weighing only 6.5kg. You will not need to hire or purchase expensive equipment as the modules can be easy installed using only a few common building tools. Just ensure that the site is perfectly level before you start, then your construction will be hassle free from floor to ceiling. The simplicity and speed of construction makes building significantly more cost-effective and enjoyable for both contractors and do-it-yourself home builders.
The logical modular building system STEKO® is suitable for residential buildings as well as communal, agricultural, industrial or business buildings up to 10 stories high. Furthermore, the wood modules can be used as well for temporary buildings, trade fair and stage buildings, renovations, extension buildings, room dividers or as infill for skeleton structures.
