SAM vs. traditional construction

Live spaciously through smart design

One of the great advantages of building with SAM is the savings in space within your project. Thanks to our modular and innovative approach to installing technology and living functions, for example, the need for a separate technical storage room is eliminated in the design. This increases the habitable area of a home by 10%. In some cases this can be as much as 20%, as shown in the example next to this text!

This has a positive impact on residential enjoyment and translates into a higher rental or sales price.

1.. 2.. 3.. Ready!

With SAM, we say goodbye to traditional construction methods. Everything is prefabricated off-site and delivered as one complete kit to your construction site. This allows our installers to work faster and more efficiently, saving you valuable time. Moreover, if required, we coordinate the entire installation process, reducing your need to manage and the risk of communication errors and better quality control. As a result, your project can be delivered an average of 3 months earlier.

Designed for a better environment

With SAM, you can save up to 5.5 tons of CO2 emissions compared to traditional construction methods just during installation. That's equivalent to the emissions of a car that would drive around the world! Thanks to easy disassembly and efficient use of materials, the environmental impact is drastically reduced. Calculate how much difference SAM can make to your project through our ECOlator on the Eco-plan page."

SAM vs. traditional construction

Live spaciously through smart design

One of the greater benefits of building with SAM is the space savings realized in your project.
Through our modular and innovative way of installing the various techniques and living functions, we eliminate, among other things, the technical storage of the design. Thus, we increase the average living space of a home by about 10%. This can even go up to 20% as in the example on the right!

This results not only in a more pleasant living experience but also in a higher rental or sales price.

2 for the price of 1

With our standardised kitchen modules you get double value for your investment. Not only do they provide your kitchen with all the necessary appliances and counter space, in most designs their back side also serves as a bathroom wall.

This way you save space and budget for your project!

Space in small area

Our SAM specific storage cabinets replace the dividing wall between bedroom and living area.
This creates extra storage space in a space that
is difficult to provide in smaller homes.

You also have the option of fitting a murphy bed in the SAM. In this way, you save even more valuable space in your flat or studio.

What our customers say

Bernard Looyens

"Smart, fast and very high quality module that can aesthetically fit anywhere and be installed seamlessly! Became a big fan!"

Peter Verhees

In this project, the technical shaft is the central hub around which the SAM is designed. The flats are heated by means of a heat pump that is nicely concealed in the SAM. As a result, there is no need for a technical room in the flats and we create extra living space for the residents.

Bart Wouters
Technical Construction Director

"I must honestly say, for me the cooperation with Bao Living has been very positive. I would give this one a 9 out of 10. Therefore, the probability of us working together again is 100%!"

Peter De Boitselier
Investar NV

"Partly because of your conviction, this was a well-designed project that together with your enthusiasm, drive and pro-active mind-set, was well executed."

Lode Goethals
Bast architects

"Bao Living's vision on the integration of utilities in their first product, SAM, has what it takes to tackle the need for innovation and to speed up efficiency in the building process. We were immediately sold on the notion of installing all the utilities of a living space with just one product."

Stijn Elsen

"Just like our TRANSFORM research group, Bao Living values sustainable material consumption and maximum flexibility. We are therefore delighted to install two SAM units in our Circular Retrofit Lab, the very first circular total renovation in Belgium!"
