Our Storage Containers & Mobile Offices team can ensure you have a modular building customized to your needs. When the project is over, your temporary building rental is taken apart and removed from the jobsite by our experts. Examples of our past work include temporary classrooms, administrative office space, temporary housing, construction site offices, retail stores, restaurants and more.
The most obvious advantage of modular construction over traditional stick-built methods is the speed at which modular structures can be built. Modular construction is estimated to be around 30-60% quicker than traditional construction methods. While the foundation and groundwork are done on-site, the modular components can be simultaneously manufactured off-site, speeding up the work considerably and reducing the chance of weather delays. In addition, modular buildings can be fitted with turnkey solutions like furniture packages and fire safety equipment, meaning your modular building will be ready for use as soon as it’s installed.
Thanks to the speed of completion, a big perk of opting for modular construction is the reduced labor costs and faster return on investment. Skilled workers are in short supply in the construction industry, and staying within a given budget and timeline can be a challenge. Modular construction enables these in-demand, trained personnel to remain in controlled sites under safer and more regulated conditions, leading to less costly downtime.
With many companies opting for sustainability initiatives to reduce waste or emissions, modular construction provides a greener alternative to traditional construction. The modular construction process produces up to 90% less waste than conventional construction thanks to the quality-controlled factory setting where many of the components are produced.
