Over the past 30 years, the term
"Modular Building" has gone through
several phases. Today modular building is
conventional code compliant structures built in
a controlled environment and transported in
sections to the job site where the sections are
put together to form the complete structure.
In recent years modular construction has gained
popularity as a green building system, with the
efficiencies of factory production, utilization
of renewable resources and energy efficiencies.
Modular construction is our specialty
and offers many advantages over conventional
site built construction.
1. Quality: Built in a factory
by a skilled workforce, our buildings are rarely
exposed to weather or its extremes and are built
to exacting quality control and inspection programs.
Often, a building can be built and
installed in about half the time of a
conventional site built structure. No weather or
Cost savings over conventional
construction is relative to the job site
location. Areas with high labor costs and/or
limited workforce will see greater savings than
areas with low labor costs and available
workers. In either case the time value
of shorter construction time is a clear
advantage with modular construction.
Flexibility in design provides
sectional buildings in single story or
multi-story for a wide variety of uses, homes,
apartments, offices, clinics, schools, motels,
etc. Multiple modular units can be combined to
obtain the desired size and layout required. Often,
it's easier to build with sectional buildings
than to remodel existing available structures.
Commercial sectional buildings can be converted from one use to another,
or relocated, for about 10% - 20% of the original
cost, and in some cases (like schools) even less.
Residential structures are meant to be permanent
structures once installed.
