Feasibility of a modular construction
Is a crane required to install a module?
Sometimes an assembly or a storey requires a crane. For this purpose, a project leader will visit your site.
A monoblock module can be taken off the lorry in no time.

Foundations are only required for stacked modules and on poor quality terrain.
We do provide foundation tiles as standard with every request.
How do I now whether my site is suitable for a module?
Do you have doubts about accessibility? An Algeco advisor can visit the site. Contact us.

This differs for each type of housing and municipality. Based on your plans, always check with your municipality whether you need a permit. Naturally, we will be happy to advise you personally.
