Advantages of Modular Construction

The factory-controlled modular manufacturing process generates less waste, reduces site disturbances and allows for tighter construction.

  • Less Material Waste with Modular Construction

When building in a factory, waste is eliminated by recycling materials, controlling inventory and protecting building materials.

  • Modulars have Greater Flexibility and Reuse

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 building to meet the new need.

  • Reduced Site Disturbance by using Modular and Portable Buildings

On-site traffic is greatly minimized from workers, equipment and suppliers.

  • Improved Air Quality with Modulars

Because the modular structure is substantially completed in a factory-controlled setting using dry materials, the potential for high levels of moisture being trapped in the new construction is eliminated.

Construction of modular buildings occurs simultaneously with site work, allowing projects to be completed in half the time of traditional construction.

  • Reduced Modular Building Construction Schedule

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.

  • Elimination of Weather Delays

60 – 90% of the construction is completed inside a factory, which mitigates the risk of weather delays. Buildings are occupied sooner, creating a faster return on investment.

  • Modular and Portable Buildings are Built to Code with Quality Materials

Modular buildings 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.

  • Safer Construction with Modulars

The indoor construction environment reduces the risks of accidents and related liabilities for workers.

  • Limitless Design Opportunities

Modular building units may be designed to fit in with external aesthetics of any existing building and modular units, once assembled, are virtually indistinguishable from their site-built counterparts.
