Al Masaood Bergum, part of Al Masaood Group and one of the UAE’s leading modular building solutions providers, has introduced its latest innovative solution, ‘Ultra-Fold Prefinished Modules’.
From construction of villages, workforce accommodations in the oil and gas, defence, and construction sectors, Ultra-Fold Prefinished Module is a solution that is versatile to fit any purpose.
Engineered to German standards, the module builds robust structures and offers full flexibility in arrangement and positioning as it has quick installation process which takes only 17 minutes to assemble with a minimum five persons.
Jens Otterstedt, General Manager of Al Masaood Bergum, said: “New materials and engineering techniques play a significant role in developing a sustainable construction industry. In line with the UAE’s ambitious on net-zero by 2050, introducing the ‘Ultra-Fold Prefinished Modules’ reflects Al Masaood Bergum’s commitment to create eco-friendly and innovative products, services, and solutions. We believe modular construction systems as one of the practical solutions to design strong, adaptable structures that blend form with function.”
Extreme weather compatibility
Created to withstand extreme weather conditions due to thermal insulation, the Ultra-Fold Prefinished Module has an excellent acoustic rating with foldable walls that go up to 12 m in length adjustable width starting from three meters to 3.6 m.
Unlike conventional cement, the module is made from cement fibre, a mixture of Portland cement, fly ash, water and wood pulp that is bio-degradable and low in emissions to promote sustainable living due to the limited labour requirement for installation on site. Built with advanced technology, the module can be split into five units and bundled together, making it easier to be transported via land, air, or sea.
“One of the main reasons in developing Ultra-Fold Prefinished Modules is the enhancement in speed of construction that can streamline production processes and boost output speed. It also reflects on our commitment to support the UAE’s Industrialization strategy and ‘Make it in the Emirates’ campaign to offer more environment-friendly options for the future of manufacturing industry in the country,” he added.
Innovative construction
A pioneer in end-to-end modular building solutions, Al Masaood Bergum has grown to become one of the key industry players in the country over the years. It has introduced several innovative construction solutions in the UAE and KSA for greener construction practices. 
Some of its latest construction solutions include Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Hybrid Modular Solutions (HMS). Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is an engineered solid wood panel that is prefabricated and produced from a highly sustainable carbon-sequestering substance. 
Al Masaood Bergum’s portfolio of services includes highly engineered modular building systems and services that are known for their high quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness.-- TradeArabia News Service
