GUIDE TO
MODULAR COORDINATION
IN BUILDINGS
MODULE – why ?
 increase in demand
modern industrial society ~ economic growth and dynamic development
rapid expansion
 increase in standards
 increase in expectation
MODULE – why
?
to match demand with capacity
to build
improve effectiveness
improve quality
improve cost effectiveness
The modular systemis a link
in the industrialisation of the
building industry
MODULE – why ?
modular offers :
1 dimensional coordinaton– simplify & clarify
2 limitation of variants in dimensions
3 standardization
4 prefabrication
industrialization
increase production through
increased productivity
standardisation
levels of standardisation
○ National standardisation
– MS 1064
○ Client standardisation
– elements, processes
– schools, hospitals, offices
○ Manufacturer standardisation
– products, materials, sub-assemblies
○ Project standardisation
– procedures, building elements

PART 1 : GENERAL PRINCIPLES
Section 1 : General
1. AIM
a) Facilitates cooperation between building designers,
manufacturers, distributors, contractors and authorities.
b) In the design work, enables buildings to be so dimensioned
that they can be erected with standard components without
undue restriction on freedom of design.
c) Permits a flexible type of standardisation, which encourages
the use of a limited number of standardised building
components for the construction of different types of building.
1
d) Optimises the number of standard sizes of building
components.
e) Encourages as far as possible the interchangeability of
components, whatever material, form or method of
manufacture.
f) Simplifies site operations by rationalising setting out,
positioning and assembly of building components.
g) Ensures dimensional coordination between installation
(equipment, storage units, other fitted furniture, etc.)
as well as with the rest of the building.
