Modular floating foundations are sectional structures from autonomous modules, assembled into a rigid structure of required length. Houses, hotels, restaurants, quays, parking stations, etc. can be built on such foundations.

Autonomous module is a hollow structure, in which service mechanisms, storage tanks and sewage waters collecting tanks can be installed. Hatches for access are provided for in the autonomous module. The size of the module is  12,19Х2,44Х1,29 m and it is a floating unit, occupying in its size half of the volume of a widely used 40-ft container. Thus, modules, packed in pairs, occupy a volume equal to the container, and have the same standard fittings used for its fixation. It provides for free transporting of the autonomous modules by car, by train or by sea.

Mounting of the floating foundation is carried out afloat, in any place, very quickly and without any special expensive machinery.

The payload on each block depends on the water reservoir's Class, where it is sited. For water reservoirs of "Р" Class it constututes 15 t. it is equivalent to the weight of 200 persons or to the weight of 6 automobiles.

Here is an example of the preliminary design project of a mini-hotel for 24 rooms, worked out by "Monolit". Modular foundation consists from nine units. Accomodation block units, constructed from light-weight panels “Fixcel”, serve as an upper structure.
Thus, the presented floating mini-hotel is a quickly erected floating unit.
