You might not notice them, but modular buildings are everywhere. Where once they were simple replacements for regular buildings, improvements in technology and design have made it possible to utilize modular construction in the building of all kinds of businesses. If you’re looking to expand your business or are looking at a future construction project, you might want to take advantage of the unique characteristics that modular buildings have to offer. Here are a few instances where modular construction can make a big difference.
A Smaller Carbon Footprint
With climate change becoming a noticeable fact of life, its presence needs to be addressed in every way possible. By being manufactured off-site, modular buildings allow for a leaner, more efficient, and less wasteful construction process than regular buildings. Furthermore, they are fully reusable. When a modular building needs to be replaced, it can either ship to a new site as-is, or it can be taken apart piece by piece to be reconstituted or recycled to be used as something else. With all the construction taking place off-site under controlled circumstances, there isn’t the need for a fleet of trucks to move in and out as they would with traditional construction. Also, since there’s very little required to move the modular building into place, the amount of disruption in and around the site is kept to a minimum.
Built entirely by skilled laborers in a manufacturing facility, modular buildings aren’t subject to weather delays. Also, since the work on the site can occur at the same time as the modular building is being constructed, the entire project can take half the time as traditional construction. They’re built to meet or exceed the codes of regular buildings, and because they can be completed and made work-ready so quickly, you’ll be able to occupy the building right away. Not only is this convenient, but it makes for a quicker and better return on your construction investment.
Modular buildings are incredibly versatile. Improved for use as classrooms, office spaces, and even storage facilities you can take advantage of the speed and cost-effectiveness of modular construction to create practically any environment you like. Built with the same materials and to the same codes as traditional construction, once you’ve customized the exterior and interior to your liking, your modular building will be virtually indistinguishable from those that were built on-site.
