Dorce Prefabricated Buildings&Construction Inc. Offers Low-Carbon Solutions with Volumetric Steel Structures
Dorce provides efficient energy use, less waste and low error risk by using “Modern Construction Methods” in volumetric modular steel solutions.
In line with the net zero carbon emission target by 2050, the construction industry has entered the process of decarbonisation, following the Amendments in the Climate Change Law in 2019 adopted by the European Parliament. According to the data published by the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC), the construction industry’s share of energy use in the world is 36%.
The Global Status Report for Buildings and Construction is a reference document published by The Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC) as part of the UN Environment Program (UNEP). The 2021 report (Buildings-GSR) shows that CO2 emissions from the construction industry are the highest ever recorded, with the industry accounting for 38% of energy-related global carbon emissions (approximately 13.5 billion giga tons of carbon dioxide – GtCO2).
Energy efficient production
Dorce’s volumetric modular solutions shorten construction times without comprimising on quality and safety. One of the important reasons for the higher energy efficiency compared to traditional construction methods is that the manufacturing process is kept under control in the factory environment. The need for equipment, machinery and workforce in the field is significantly reduced with the transition of the construction from the site to the factory.
According to Transparency Market Research data, annual global construction waste production is expected to reach 2.2 billion tons by 2025. Construction waste can be minimized in volumetric modular construction projects developed and realized by Dorce, since the design and manufacturing processes are managed and realized in a controlled factory environment. The less waste policy is adopted with the choice of recyclable materials.
Modern Methods of Construction – MMC
Dorce precisely determine the required material, minimize the time spent and margin of error by using modern construction methods such as Design for Manufacturing & Assembly (DfMA) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) in production processes of volumetric modular steel structures.
The Company, within the scope of Green Building and Sustainability, can integrate high-level certification and standards such as BREAM, LEED and DGNB with its volumetric modular building solutions. Dorce is a company that is capable of completing most complexed projects, such as the largest pandemic facility in the region with a capacity of 4,000 people located in Qatar, and the accommodation city in the mining areas of Kazakhstan, where harsh weather conditions up to -50 and +60 degrees degrees are prevailing.
