The most important advantage of modular buildings is construction time - it takes no more than 6 months, from the design stage to the actual implementation of the building. In the case of traditional construction, 18 months is the minimum, required time. Even though the building is made of timber, there is no fire risk – the timber framing is shielded with non-flammable, construction materials. Module-based buildings are more soundproof, in comparison to brick houses, and at the same time they are highly durable. The factory in Bielsk Podlaski cooperates with scientists at Bialystok Technical University, who test the modules for noise and tightness. No product leaves the factory without being tested for conformity with relevant acoustics and tightness standards.

Modular houses can be built on embankments, rocky ground, marshy ground, sandy soil or even on the roof of a pre-standing building. They rest on a wall base supported by a concrete pile foundation submerged in the ground. The houses can be moved from one place to another or even disassembled and re-assembled in a different place.

They can also be expanded easily by buying additional modules. They can assume practically any architectural form. Our modules bear a resemblance to “giant LEGO bricks”, which can be placed one on top of another. UNIHOUSE sets up 5 to 6-floor, wooden residential blocks, which do not resemble any other wooden house.

- We have been successfully selling our modules in Norway for years. They serve their purpose really well, despite experiencing more severe weather conditions than in Poland - says Roman Jakubowski, Branch Director of UNIHOUSE - a wooden house is no longer a symbol of impoverishment, but rather a sign of ecology and contact with nature. It’s a symbol of Norway. The Norwegians did not take long to be convinced by our wooden technology, as they were familiar with the use of wood and have made use of similar solutions, for years.


Advantages of the module technology:

  • a modern type of technology, taking advantage of ecologically clean materials, such as wood, plaster and mineral wool;
  • the very short completion time of construction, which is the result of transferring some of the technological processes from the construction site to the factory, e.g a complete hotel can be finished within 3-4 months (depending on the design assumptions);
  • attractive projects with the possibility of customizing the design to the Client’s individual needs or of using a design provided by the Client;
  • attractive price/quality ratio;
  • the buildings can be delivered practically anywhere;
  • full fire protection of the components of the building, in compliance with REI 60, fire resistance standards;
  • a user-friendly environment inside the houses and buildings thanks to the use of natural materials;
  • great thermal insulation of walls and roofs (heat permeability coefficient  U< 0,18 W/m2K) very low heating costs (40-70 kWh/m2/year); - low operating costs;
  • acoustic insulation of inter-module walls: 63 dB;
  • safe co-operation - a stable market position;
  • assembly regardless of weather conditions.



Faster construction than in the case of traditional buildings.

It takes about 6 months for the building to be put into use (for a multi-family residential building with 30 flats). No waste is produced, on the construction site.

The most environmentally-friendly technology.

The possibility of installing solar collectors, heat pumps and mechanical ventilation.

The intensive use of wood.

A favourable interior environment.

Low operating costs.

Low heating costs thanks to a low heat permeability coefficient (from 0.23 to 0.14 W/m2K).

The ease of disassembly of the modules.

Buildings can be disassembled and moved to a different location whenever necessary.
