Modular Explained

MAAP uses the best technology for Your Home.

  • MODULAR BUILDING - means a building that is built in parts or modules in a factory which are then be assembled on site to form a whole building. Modular building can offer cheaper parts, higher quality and faster construction times as it takes advantage of manufacturing technology.
  • VOLUMETRIC - In construction this means that the modular parts of a building are volumes or fully built rooms and spaces. This type of modular building offers quick on-site assembly, but is often excessively expensive to transport as the modules are usually oversized and are essentially filled with air, requiring more truck loads, crane lifting and road limits.
  • PANELISED - In construction this means that the modular building is assembled from panels usually wall, floor & roof panels. This type of modular building works more like flat pack construction where panels are assembled on site to create the whole building. In transit, panels can be stacked together which makes them significantly cheaper to transport. Although cheaper to move, this type of modular building often requires much longer on-site time to finish wet-areas and complete kitchen, bathroom and laundry installations. 
  • HYBRID (MAAP House) - The MAAP system is a hybrid of panelised and volumetric construction. MAAP Houses are primarily an integrated panelised system because of the manufacturing, transport and quality benefits. MAAP also incorporates volumetric construction in kitchens, bathrooms and laundries which saves time plumbing and installing on site and is more efficient and cost effective overall. All other building parts are assembled from MAAP factory produced panels. The MAAP system incorporates the perfect balance for the best Speed, Quality and Cost for your home. Learn More
  • INTEGRATED PANELS - Most panelised modular buildings use solid panels which do not allow for services, leaving unsightly wires and pipes exposed either inside or outside the building. MAAP panels are fully integrated to include services both for the initial build and for later renovation. MAAP panels also come with optional doors and windows already installed saving more on-site time. Check out Incredible MAAP Panels

Lightweight. Heavyduty.

  • UNIQUE - The MAAP House system has been called a world first*. When building a MAAP House you get a fully customisable flat pack home with the ability to easily customise for future modification. The panels are standardised to allow for simple design, ease of manufacture and ability to reuse your MAAP Panels in future extensions or modifications. ABC News Interview
  • LIGHTWEIGHT HEAVYDUTY - MAAP Panels make use of a steel internal structure and magnesium oxide or Mgo board lining. This makes them lighter and stronger than other conventional building technologies. MAAP Panels are also coated with durable hard-wearing finishes for longevity and for installation without damage. We tested our panels for resisance to water, fire, impact and graffiti. Check out MAAP Panel testing
  • ADAPTABLE - MAAP Panels can be added, removed, swapped, changed, recycled and reused. They are the perfect solution for our changing lives and our changing world. Learn More
  • SUSTAINABLE - MAAP panels are 100% reusable, they can be replaced with no wastage. They are also constructed from fully recyclable materials. We care about the planet and our carbon footprint. Check out MAAP Sustainability

Smarter Storage, Transport & Assembly

  • STORAGE - Factory and storage space comes at an overhead cost. The space required to store other volumetric modular buildings is enormous as there must be enough floor space for every building under construction. MAAP Panels can be stacked and require only a fraction of storage space when compared to volumetric building. Saving space, saving costs.
  • TRANSPORT - MAAP panels are transported efficiently. Unlike volumetric modular building transport, there is very little wasted space on each truck load. MAAP fits more building parts per truck and does not require expensive pilot cars, oversize permits or road closures. Learn More
  • DELIVERY - MAAP Panel stacks are designed to be light and easy to move, requiring smaller trucks and cranes, and allowing MAAP Houses to be installed on tight or difficult sites. Light panels also allow quicker unloading and simpler on-site handling. More Handling Benefits
  • CRANES - MAAP Panels are light and so on-site cranes are only used on-site for a short time or not at all. Sometimes truck mounted cranes are sufficient for unloading smaller homes.
  • ASSEMBLY - MAAP Panels are light enough to be individually lifted by hand. This makes on site assembly efficient and reduces the cost and time required by material handling.
MAAP panels are economical and space saving in manufacture, they can be stacked and stored in relatively small spaces

MAAP Manufacturing and Panel Production

  • FACTORY not FACILITY - In spite of technology, modular buildings are often CONSTRUCTED not MANUFACTURED in a FACILITY not a FACTORY. This means that they are built using standard or conventional methods, by adding structure the buildings can be moved without breaking. They are essentially built off-site, disassembled and reassembled on-site; each step adding more and more cost to the process. MAAP Panels are MANUFACTURED taking advantage of FACTORY processes. MAAP Panels are standarised and repeatable but still versatile in how and where they can be used in the final on-site layout.
  • QUALITY - A factory uses standardised processes and systems and prioritises the use of devices and jigs for accuracy. MAAP panels are manufactured to higher quality standards and better tolerances than can be achieved on any construction site. Learn More
  • EFFICIENCY - A factory allows for machinery and technology to supplement labour and improve efficiency. The use of machines allows for more parts to be produced at lower cost and be available faster than if done manually. MAAP is continually investing in it's technology to improve efficiency. 
  • CAPACITY - A factory is designed to handle multiple jobs at a time and process them in the most efficient way. MAAP manufacturing is constantly improving its capacity, so that your home can be built sooner.
  • LESS WASTE - Material wastage is closely managed within a factory. Materials are cut to size, excess product is used on subsequent projects, and parts are designed to maximise material efficiency. MAAP factory waste is only a fraction of conventional construction waste on-site. Learn More
  • AUSSIE MADE - We prioritise AusSteel, Bostik, Dulux and other Australian made materials. With the demise of the automotive industry in Australia, much of the manufacturing industries have been converted to importing industries. Let's keep Australia alive by manufacturing our homes at home.
