Construction on build-to-rent (BTR) communities has nearly doubled in recent years which is why today’s builders should, and are in some cases, considering modular construction. Advantages including speed of construction, lower construction and financing costs, sustainability, energy-efficiency and green building practices are some of the key factors that should be considered for all BTR communities.Read More
The path to enduring sustainability and net-zero emissions is full of challenges. Reducing carbon emissions and reaching net-zero will require a significant paradigm shift in building design, supply chain management, and manufacturing. S2A Modular is pioneering that transition in construction using innovative building materials, highly efficient modular structures, and green principles in a product-based approach.
According to Mckinsey & Company, the construction ecosystem accounts for approximately 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The main offenders are raw-material processing for buildings and infrastructure – the most significant being energy-intensive cement and steel production – closely followed by building usage, occupation, operations and inefficiencies like poor insulation.Read More
S2A levels up its smart-connected home tech for luxury residences and commercial buildings with iLamp, the next-generation smart streetlight from Conflow Power Group. The solar-powered iLamp is packed with security, charging, communications features and uses surplus energy to generate revenue for S2A Modular homeowners, businesses and planned developments.
Imagine a solar-powered street lamp that generates enough power to light your street and charge your e-bike or scooter. It can use its onboard power generation to run systems that track severe weather, assist emergency response, enable Wi-Fi and other wireless communications – a wide variety of technologies that can work both on and off the grid. What began as a necessary but dull part of municipal infrastructure, the streetlight is becoming an exciting piece of tech that could improve community well-being and help people feel safer.Read More

Modular construction is expected to deliver a paradigm shift in building practices in the US. as demand for affordable, efficient, and sustainable housing soars. For decades, construction technology has under paced other sectors of the economy. We’ve been standing up buildings the same way for generations with limited innovation in new techniques. Modular construction is about to change all that.
To help people understand the scope of modular building and how it will transform the construction industry, S2A Modular created a practical video series that covers the many advantages of modular construction integrated with smart home energy technology.Read More
Since its inception, modular construction has significantly evolved from the early days of low-cost, simple, one and two-piece rectangular structures to an all-new evolution of luxury homes, hotels and commercial properties featuring stunning architecture, modern amenities and luxurious design.
