Modular building solution is 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. Modular buildings are produced in “modules” that when put together on site to build a prefab house, reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built facility – without compromise.
The factory-controlled process generates less waste, creates fewer site disturbances and allows for tighter construction.
Modular buildings can be disassembled and the modules relocated or refurbished for new use, reducing the demand for raw materials and minimizing the amount of energy expended to create a prefab house building to meet the new need.
When building prefab home in a factory, waste is eliminated by recycling materials, controlling inventory and protecting building materials
Because construction of modular buildings can occur simultaneously with the site and foundation work, projects can be completed 30% to 50% sooner than traditional construction.
60 – 90% of the construction of prefab houses is completed inside a factory, which mitigates the risk of weather delays. Buildings are occupied sooner, creating a faster return on investment.
The indoor construction of modular building solutions environment reduces the risks of accidents and related liabilities for workers.
Modular units are built to meet or exceed the same building codes and standards as site-built structures, and the same architect-specified materials used in conventionally constructed buildings are used in modular construction projects – wood, concrete and steel.
Modular buildings are built with the same materials and to the same building codes and architectural specifications as traditional construction. Once assembled, they are virtually indistinguishable from their site-built counterparts.
Structurally, modular buildings solutions are generally stronger than site-built construction because each module is engineered to independently withstand the rigors of transportation and craning onto foundations. Once together and sealed, the modules become one integrated wall, floor, and roof assembly. Building offsite prefab homes ensures better construction quality management. Manufacturing plants have stringent QA/QC programs with independent inspection and testing protocols that promote superior quality of construction every step of the way.
