Modular construction has many benefits, both short and long term. These benefits are part of why modular construction is gaining in popularity across the U.S. Here are some of the benefits you will experience when making the switch to modular construction.
Short Term Benefits of Modular Construction
When you first install modular and prefabricated buildings, you will begin to see immediate benefits for your business:
Quick, Safe Construction
Modular and prefabricated construction is much quicker and safer to install than traditional construction. In both cases construction is done off-site then brought to site for installation. For modular construction individual components are built off-site and then brought in to be assembled. For prefabricated construction the entire structure is completed off-site then brought in as a complete unit. Because both forms of construction are so much faster than conventional construction, you do not have to worry about construction delays due labor shortages or missing materials.
Reduced Site Disruption
No one particularly enjoys having their workspace disrupted by construction, such as dealing with equipment and construction dust. Modular construction reduces site disruption by minimizing debris by building the components off-site and quickly installing them in your desired location.
Unlike traditional construction, modular and prefabricated construction has low up-front costs as there are fewer contractors involved in the process, resulting in the application being built and installed in half the time. We will even work with you to find the application that will fit both your budget and needs.
Long Term Benefits of Modular Construction
The longer you have modular and prefabricated buildings, the more you will see the benefits for your company and the environment:
Energy Efficiency & Sustainability
Modular and prefabricated buildings are designed to be more energy efficient and sustainable than traditional construction. This means reusable materials and LEED Certification, reducing construction waste and carbon emissions.
Another benefit of modular and prefabricated construction is that both can be reused and adapted to meet your ever-changing needs. This reusability means that you do not have to demolish and build from scratch every time you need to make a change. Our experienced team of engineers can re-design modular applications in a new configuration for free. Prefabricated structures can be picked up and moved to another location at any time. Both options will save you time and money.
Our building systems are designed to keep employees, visitors, and equipment safe in a variety of conditions, both indoor and outdoor. For example, our seismic resistant structures can support lateral loads in case of an earthquake – a critical need in areas with high seismic activity like California. They can also be applied to prevent accidents in the workplace, like falling.
Consider modular construction for any addition or upgrade you need to make for your business. The possible applications are endless, and you can save big on both time and money compared to traditional construction.
