Unlock Prefabrication in the Construction Industry

We are building the single destination for prefab design, planning and procurement

What We Do

Prefabrication and modular construction have the potential to change the entire construction industry for the better. If we use it well, this approach will allow us to build faster, cheaper and greener. At Modulize we want to be the Operating System for the entire prefabrication value chain, removing bottlenecks, information breakdowns and many of the other challenges that are holding back the industry today. We do this by building THE single collaborative software solution for prefab design, planning and procurement, getting all stakeholders on the same page, at all times!

Simplified design

As a manufacturer, apply Modulize algorithms to break down building models into designs that suit your production line. As an architect, identify the best possible use of elements in real-time, based on actual manufacturer capabilities and capacities.

Planning insights

Simplify cost estimation, Life Cycle Assessment and optimise your project to save time, money and reduce waste along the way.

Efficient procurement

Simplified and more consistent tendering and bidding mean that you find the right partner, and you do it fast! Modulize lets you find contractor-manufacturer fit for each and every project.

How It Works

For Manufacturers

Streamline element design processes by automating information extraction from building models and possible breakdowns of a project into elements

For Contractors

Simplify your procurement process end-to-end, and get the best value from your prefab supplier

For Architects

Seamlessly integrate prefab elements into your designs. Through our generative algorithms, elements are matched directly against design parameters

For Developers

Easily validate cost estimates and maximise the benefits from adopting prefab. Make your projects faster, cheaper and greener

About us

We are Modulize, an early stage start-up based in Oslo, Norway. After meeting at the Antler startup accelerator in the summer of 2020, our founders Håkon, Olav and Lucas bonded over their passion for using technology to improve our physical surroundings. Modulize was born out of a search for ways to reduce waste in construction, an industry that produces nearly 40% of all waste globally. Because prefabrication and modular construction promises not only reduced waste, but also cheaper and faster construction, this is what we aim for with Modulize. To build software that finally unlocks the true potential of prefabrication and modular construction and to build a world where construction is faster, cheaper and greener, all without sacrificing quality or character.
