CONVENTIONAL VS. MODULAR DESIGN
COMPARISON STUDY

Modular and conventional planning in comparison
In order to better understand the full potential of the digitales bauen® planning method, a comparative study was performed using a completed and well-documented, conventional project as the basis. Measurable criteria of the two planning methods were compared.
The project was a newly constructed 30,000 sqm, 4-storey administrative building with a ground level customer service hall, office levels, and an underground parking garage.

On the basis of a representative plan
For the comparative study, a segment of the building was specified. This consisted of a 1,000 sqm zone on the 4th level of the building and served as a good representation for the entire building. Comparable area to this cross-section occur approximately ten times in the structure.
