Welcome to CompactHabit®

We build innovation


CompactHabit S.L. was created with a view to solve some of the problems existing in the construction sector. After years of research and development, CompactHabit S.L. has opted for the offsite and industrialized construction of volumetric modules that are fully finished and equipped in the factory: the innovative “eMii®” system (Edificación Modular Integral Industrializada or Offsite Integral Modular Building).

Compared with the traditional system, this procedure developed by CompactHabit® is innovative in 4 fundamental aspects:

  • Process innovation
  • Product innovation
  • Technology innovation
  • Business model innovation

These innovations allow us to overcome the weaknesses of the traditional system by:

  • Rationalizing the construction process.
  • Increasing the level of construction quality.
  • Avoiding frequent deviations in costs and timeframes.
  • Reducing the sector's high accident rate, preventing occupational risks.
  • Improving working conditions for staff.
  • Minimizing waste generation.
  • Generating economies of scale.

Trending Modular Offsite Solutions

Offsite Integral Modular Buildings, eMii® system

CompactHabit® has introduced in 2009 the Offsite Integral Modular Buildings, eMii® system, to enable the large-scale production of finished concrete and hybrid modules. The system is currently in-use in Spain, France and Switzerland.  

The system entails the manufacture of large, three-dimensional 4-sided monolithic modules of reinforced concrete (eMii-C) or hybrid steel-concrete (eMii-CS). They are routed through an assembly process of the various components, building services and materials until they leave the production facility fully equipped and with the interior finished to customer specifications.  

The production solution adopted for the eMii-C module involves the manufacture of a single piece of concrete in two braced stages. To achieve this, a mould was developed, as well as proprietary formwork that enables horizontal concreting phases, thereby solving the problem of mix placement from above. The mechanical formwork can be adapted to different lengths, heights and widths.      

All our buildings are relocatable. As a "nomadic" construction, the system is based on repeating units of varying sizes and heights up to 8-9 floors high (eMii-C) or higher (eMii-CS).   

CompactHabit®’s scope ranges from student dorms to multi-family dwellings, offices, hotels, schools, and other institutional markets.  

CompactHabit® has got the ETA  (European Technical Assessment) and CE label.
