Modular Construction: The Ultra-Efficient Way of the Future?

Rechnology makes it easier to design, move and assemble components.

Factory-built modular construction is growing in popularity as advancing technology makes it easier to design, move and assemble components.


Prefabricated in sections in a safe, controlled setting at an indoor manufacturing facility, modular construction can be a cost-cutting, time-saving option for everything from apartment buildings to hospitals. Modular construction made its debut at a Montreal architecture expo in 1967 and only recently gained popularity as advancing technology makes these projects easier to manage.

Representing just over 1 percent of total construction revenue, modular construction isn't going to overtake the industry anytime soon, but there are a number of benefits to this ultra-efficient building method.
