Here’s what you need to know about modular construction.

If you keep up to date with trends in the construction industry, then you have likely heard the term modular construction thrown around.  But what is modular construction and what are some of the benefits associated with this type of building?  Here’s what you need to know about modular construction.

What is it?

A modular building is one that is built indoors in a factory setting.  Once these buildings have been constructed, they are transported to their final location and then assembled by a builder.  Modular buildings aren’t mobile; they are simply buildings that are built off-site rather than on-site.  Modular buildings are also commonly referred to as “factory-built,” “system-built, or “prefab buildings.”


The main benefits of modular construction are that it saves time, money, and is environmentally-friendly.  Modular construction is a sustainable form of construction as it leverages the power of cutting-edge technology and relies on materials from sustainable sources.  Additionally, the construction of modular buildings produces less waste and can be built in half the time it takes to build by traditional methods.  Finally, modular construction affords the client considerable flexibility and adaptability when it comes to design.
