Construction Week Middle East showcased Dupod, an AMANA Group Company, on their pairing of innovative construction methods with technology for disruption and driving efficiency. Dupod was founded on the pillars of productization, market enablement, rapid scalability and agile manufacturing.
Dupods modules can be built in 15 - 25 days from approval date. Their off-site solution also mitigates environmental impact as 85% of the construction is completed off site and results in 70% improved work safety environment.
Furthermore their modular building projects can be constructed in up to 50-75% of the time of a conventional site-built project of comparable size.
Their notable projects include the Aquaventure waterpark in Dubai’s Atlantis Hotel.

Offsight customer Hegg Construction, announced their plans to expand into offsite construction with the launch of a 127,000 square foot facility in Brandon, South Dakota. The factory will include two full production lines and can store up to 240 modules. Furthermore, Hegg plans to scale their factory workforce to 125 employees.
Hegg Construction plans to start production on major hospitality projects soon and begin producing modular hotel rooms.
“Within the box, you’ve got two completed hotel rooms, and I mean wallpaper on, carpet on the floor, a bed, a TV laying on the bed so it ships nicely, toilet fixtures in — I’m talking finished,” said Wade Behm, president of Hegg Construction. “It’s really, really cool. Marriott and Hilton in particular have modular programs and are promoting this as the best deployment method for hospitality going forward.”
The factory is expected to start production in November and given Hegg Construction’s existing portfolio of hospitality clients there is already strong demand.
