Fast Track Construction: How Sitefactory is Changing the Game


In this episode of the AEC Business Podcast, Hanna Backman, the Chief Commercial Officer at Flow Modules, discussed the innovative Sitefactory concept with Aarni Heiskanen. By offering a comprehensive solution for residential construction projects, Flow Modules is paving the way for a more streamlined and effective home-building approach.


Flow Modules is a Finnish industrialized construction company dedicated to enhancing productivity in residential construction projects. Hanna explains how the company aims to deliver high-quality residential builds cost-effectively and quickly by combining prefabricated elements with efficient assembly processes.

In prefabrication, Flow Modules primarily focuses on bathroom pods and other pre-assembled components. They are designed to streamline construction by eliminating waste, reducing lead times, and enhancing overall efficiency.

The Sitefactory concept

In the podcast, Hanna discusses Flow Modules’ innovative Sitefactory concept extensively. This concept revolutionizes the traditional subcontracting model by utilizing Takt production with hourly workers and providing comprehensive support to site managers. The approach enhances productivity, shortens lead times, and fosters a collaborative and efficient work environment.

The concept involves standardizing work packages and training workers for specific tasks within these packages. This ensures that workers are well-equipped to carry out their assigned tasks efficiently.

Sitefactory extends beyond the construction site, requiring changes in procurement practices, material choices, and logistics planning to align with the principles of industrialized construction. Overall, Hanna emphasizes the importance of meticulous planning and coordination.
