Prefab modular hotel

The last decade has seen an unprecedented growth in affordable tourism. Increased numbers of people all over the world are taking trains, planes and booking accommodation. All of this has a positive effect on economic growth, but needs to be kept in check by governance and community actors. The travel industry now denotes not only travelling for pleasure but also for educational or business purposes. In addition to the fact that travelling has become more accessible, more and more people are drawn to the exploration of the unknown or seeking self-fulfilment. We can observe changing habits of travellers, as there is a  discrepancy between the luxury tourism segment that is increasingly important in the developing markets, and a universal trend towards more affordable tourism. The positive economic situation in most parts of the world has contributed to the growth of this sector in general.

All indicators point to growth and development of several sectors

Growing tourism trends can be observed interstate, internationally or even among different continents. The World Tourism Organization characterizes the travel industry as predominantly growing. Not only is it ever more present on a global scale, but tourism activity also has no rest, as the 24/7 businesses and services are rapidly increasing. Today, the travel industry is a noteworthy source of income for many actors, including some nations. Tourism influences the economy of the source and host states, at times being of crucial importance. Tourism suffered because of the late 2000 economic crises, when it was also hit by the consequences of the H1N1 flu virus. Yet its growth resumed and now it is strong and solid. Worldwide the travel industry received revenues of up to more than a740 billion Euro in 2011, which signifies an expansion in genuine terms of 3.8% from 2010. Its strongest branch is international tourism; there were more than 1 billion international travellers in 2012. The strongest markets include China, Russia and Brazil, which also experience the highest growth.

Construction and administration alike profit from tourism growth

The travel industry is an important revenue source for the economies on local and national scale.  Not only is the infrastructure needed for hosting tourists, but what is more, jobs and businesses are encouraged through developing products and businesses required by tourists. Notably, positive effects extend far beyond pure job growth, as there is positive influence being marked on the development of the regions, cities and the preserving of natural habitats. Even governance is improved and there are positive effects linked to administering all aspects of the economy related to tourism. Sectors that profit by the travel industry include transport and logistics (for example: carriers, cruise ships, trains and taxis); accommodation services (for example: housing, including lodging and resorts) and the hospitality industry  (for example: restaurants, clubs including  shopping centres, music venues and theatres). Another important benefit is increased activity in construction.
Whereas the construction sector has also known variable activity in the last 15 years, the trends of growth are visible in this branch as well. Yet, the construction crisis in the last decade has led to an increased vigilance and the need for flexibility on the part of the industry. This is why the construction investors in tourism sector have adapted and are opting for prefabricated modular building solutions. Prefab modular hotel buildings are sustainable and energy-efficient, while having an added value of flexibility and adaptability. Customers report comparable, if not higher comfort levels in prefab hotel rooms, as compared to the traditional building methods. The advances in technology and construction methods have led to comparable standards, which are increasingly being noted on part of all actors. Not least because of the sustainability of prefab modular hotels.

Sustainable tourism – a valid way forward

Sustainable tourism denotes managing resources in a way that maintains economic, social and aesthetic needs while guarding the cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, and biological diversity and life support systems, as defined by the World Tourism Organization. In this way prefabricated buildings, which are easy to assemble and dismantle, are much less disturbing for the environment than some more traditional solutions. Sustainability of this type of building respects the biological and social boundaries of the environment and incorporates the natural habitats and traditional networks from the onset on. In this way, the possible negative effects of tourism are balanced through a well-managed approach, starting with urban planning and sustainable management. What is more, the revenues from tourism are collected and returned to the communities, making them available for possible offsets and balances of any damages. This tries to return the social and natural habitats into the close-to-the-original state. Like this, even possible mass tourism flows can be managed and addressed, while keeping local communities included and effects under check.
