Our Structural team works collaboratively with Architects, Builders and Modular Suppliers from the concept design stage to develop the frame in a coordinated approach, to achieve a practical and cost-effective method of construction. Simon McCarthy is our Principal Structural Engineer.
Our experience in the adoption of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) enables us to advise on the most suitable form of modular construction, such as:
Volumetric (3D) – offsite / pre-fabricated, pre-finished modules to be assembled on site (DfMA)
E.g, enclosed apartments, hotel rooms, hospital wards, operating theatres, prison cells
Non-Volumetric (2D) – Flat-pack / offsite / prefabricated building elements assembled on site
E.g. Pre-cast concrete panels, timber walls, timber floor cassettes
Hybrid (2D and 3D) construction – a combination use of 2D panelised and 3D volumetric components. E.g. proprietary bathroom pods (3D) installed in a building that used 2D panels.
We document our designs in Revit for coordination with all disciplines in 3D. Our adoption of digital design allows us to utilise the benefits of a single model for design and documentation.

Our adoption of digital design allows us to utilise the benefits of a single model for design and documentation.
We support the implementation of the Victorian Digital Asset Strategy.
Considering Volumetric Modular Construction on your next project?
Contact us for a Modular Feasibility Study to obtain the key information you require to make your decision.
For a cost-effective fixed fee, Sensum can provide conceptual design services to:
By engaging Sensum at an early stage of the design on a project, we can add advise whether there is an opportunity to add significant value and achieve early return to market by using offsite construction.
Lunch and Learn / Training:
We offer in-house training sessions to demonstrate the benefits of adopting modular / offsite construction techniques. Please contact us to organise a suitable date and time to meet your team.
