Why Choose Modular Construction?

by | May 26, 2021 | Uncategorized

During any construction project, business leaders must ensure that they don’t experience things such as late project times or an exceeded budget. To help combat these issues, modular construction has become a viable building option. But why should companies choose modular construction over traditional construction? Continue reading to learn more about the pros of modular construction and how it can help your jobsite.

What is Modular Construction?

The Modular Building Institute defines modular construction as “a process in which a building is constructed off-site, under controlled plant conditions, using the same materials and designing to the same codes and standards as conventionally built facilities – but in about half the time.”

Why Modular Construction?

Modular construction offers many different benefits to companies. The main benefits are that it’s sustainable, fast, and smart.

Sustainable

By choosing modular construction, companies are able to reduce their use of natural resources and the affects that they have on the ecosystem. Because this type of construction is built within a factory, less material waste is used by being able to control/protect materials and air quality is improved by using dry materials that won’t trap moisture within the new construction. Modular construction can also be reused for other projects by relocating them or modifying them for a different use.

Fast

Another benefit of modular construction is that it can be completed in half the time of traditional construction. Since the construction of modular buildings is not done onsite, the site and foundation work can be completed at the same time. This also eliminates the risk of weather delays because the majority of the offsite construction is done within a factory.

Smart

Because the majority of modular construction is done indoors, the risk of accidents and other liabilities of workers is reduced. Modular construction also provides limitless design opportunities because it can fit in with existing building and modular units. Finally, modular buildings are built using the same building codes, standards, and materials as traditional construction.
