Bauhu Cubes offer an extremely flexible, rapid construction system. Cubes can be configured to meet specific client needs from a basic structure to a fully Part L compliant high perfoming building.

PART L (UK building regulations) compliant portable, modular Cube structures case study

A step by step overview of the erection of a single Bauhu Cube 6m x 2.4m module to Part L compliance with UK building regulations for stand-alone use or for integration into a complex building. Complex, cost effective buildings can be configured very quickly by joining Cubes together side by side or end to end, or by stacking them to create two or even three story buildings. Bauhu 'Cubes' can be used for a multitude of different applications both domestic and commercial.

Each Cube module is flat packed to keep transport costs to a minimum and reduce the space needed to store building components when not in use. A flat packed module is less than 300mm high. Cubes are fully self supporting with a steel frame insulated floor structure so you don't need any foundations or floor slabs. Individual Cube modules are easily assembled by fitting four corner posts between the roof and floor structures.

Cube modules have 80mm Rockwool core insulated wall panels which provide sufficient levels of insulation for many applications. Part L compliant cube modules have a secondary, ventilated insulation layer applied to the exterior of the building and a further layer to encase the structural steel frame preventing any thermal transfer through the building envelope and providing the highest levels of thermal efficiency. Cube modules can be finished in a variety of external cladding finishes. Composite boards, horizontal cement board planking or real cedar cladding as shown below.
