  • Sustainability – lowered concrete related CO2 emissions
  • Decreased use of concrete and related machinery
  • Time-saving in comparison to a traditional formwork
  • Improved seismic performance
  • Protection from vapor intrusion

Modulo is a disposable formwork for the construction of ventilated crawl spaces which physically separate the building from the ground.

When properly ventilated, crawl spaces allow the elimination of rising damp and Radon gas mitigation.


With available heights ranging from 3 to 70 cm, it offers multiple solutions for all construction elements: foundations, slabs, walls, and roofs. Modulo is mostly used to build ventilated foundations of buildings. It is also widely present in public spaces to create squares, ramps, stairs, and voids for infrastructural systems under pavements.


Top Modulo benefits are:


Sustainability – Lowered concrete related CO2 emissions

Decreased use of concrete directly impacts lower amount of CO2 emitted in the air during its production. This is especially notable in large scale projects.

Resilience – Improved seismic performance

Decreased amount of concrete in construction impacts directly the overall mass of a building. This makes it more resilient to earthquakes.

Wellness – Protection from vapor intrusion

With ventilated crawl space that Modulo creates, toxic gases like radon are prevented from entering homes. This way, intrusion of toxic vapors is prevented, providing higher air-quality and comfort for users.

Cost reduction – Decreased use of concrete and related machinery

Construction with Modulo provides significantly decreased concrete use which results in lower costs, overall less related machinery use, and faster and more affordable building process.
