Why You Should Chose Modular Construction

The Benefits of Modular Construction

Saves Energy and Time
The demand for modular construction is climbing as many businesses have taken to the trend. Modular methods allow for speedier construction times while still maintaining quality. One Chinese modular construction company recently built a 57-story building in just 19 days. Modular construction is becoming increasingly popular for hotels. For example, Marriott International pledged to modularly construct 13% of its North American developments in 2017. Approximately 90% of engineers, 84% of contractors, and 76% of architects use prefab/modular construction processes on at least some projects. This type of construction increases efficiency both, during and after construction.

Reduces Energy and Construction Costs
Modular constructions can also reduce energy consumption during the building process by around 67% and reduces energy costs later on for occupants. According to UK-based WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme), modular construction can reduce waste materials (like cement, bricks, timber, concrete, wood pallets, shrink wrap, cardboard, and plasterboard) by up to 90%.

A report by the Building Industry Association of Philadelphia estimates that going modular can reduce construction cost by 9% to 20%. Since 60% to 90% of all prefabricated construction occurs in a warehouse or factory, projects can be completed much faster when using these methods.

Modular Construction Options

There are two main types of modular construction: permanent and relocatable. In 2011, prefab/modular construction was particularly popular for certain commercial applications: 49% of respondents used these processes for healthcare facilities, 42% used them for dormitories and other college buildings, and 42% used these methods to construct manufacturing facilities. The flexibility of modular homes components increases the overtime cost-effectiveness. Examples include modular in-plant offices, modular warehouse offices, prefabricated offices, and more. If you can think of it (and pay for it), then you can have it created through modular construction.

Prefabricated offices and modular office buildings are increasingly popular modular building options. A prefabricated office is a great solution for growing businesses that may expand or relocate. FMI’s 2013 Prefabrication and Modularization in Construction Survey found that 40% of contractors considered their prefab and modular construction capabilities to be part of their company’s strategic initiative.

National Partitions specializes in in-plant modular office designs. Their prefabricated office designs are cost-effective, cleaner and more time efficient than regular construction methods. Their systems are available in extended heights of up to 40 feet that are color coordinated so components match the walls, and can be vinyl wrapped. National Partitions also creates modular classrooms, enclosures, clean rooms and shelters/booths with interchangeable panels that meet building codes. Their system eliminates design costs and can be installed in days, as opposed to weeks.

Modular construction is a great alternative for those who need quicker, more convenient and unique building designs. Investing in a modular office building or prefabricated office can help reduce construction cost while saving time and energy. The process is cleaner and less expensive than standard construction. The prefabricated building will give you the flexibility and durability you need to take your design with you as your company grows. If you’re looking for a quick and unique alternative to costly, and time-consuming construction, consider having a prefabricated building created and brought to you.
