Is Off-site Modular Construction the Future of the Industry?

By Construction Tech Review | Thursday, December 05, 2019

Modular buildings can bring a greater degree of project certainty to the development opportunities and is something that has to be considered. Modular construction is considered to be the future of development in the construction industry.

FREMONT, CA:  Developers, architects, and builders are all becoming aware of the different types of benefits of technological advancements in the modular industry for all sorts of construction projects ranging from hotels to eco-friendly homes to a new generation of office buildings. As a long-lasting and often favorable alternative to on-site building, modular construction enables flexibility and quality, along with delivery schedule and budget guarantees. The modular construction industry is leading the way when it comes to promoting sustainability and limiting environmental impact.

Speed and Savings

Building elements are produced in a controlled environment, where delays due to weather, theft of materials, and sub-contractor absence are virtually rejected. Moreover, the use of the latest technology for taking accurate measurements minimizes the potential margin for errors that is currently possible with traditional construction methods. The modular buildings, with the help of the right technology, can be completed within a given time and budget. By reducing delays and eliminating the number of highly skilled workers that are needed for a project, off-site construction methods allow clients to manage their budget and make substantial cost savings.

Greenery

Minimizing the environmental footprint is one of the major issues at present, and no architect can plan a construction project without rejecting the environmental issues in the building process and management. Production of the components in an enclosed indoor environment authorizes the modular buildings to attain the need for green building certifications, such as the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method, otherwise known as BREEAM.

Quality as Standard

Enabling quality service to escort quality products is a modular building provider's number one priority. The off-site construction model produces components of more consistent quality, and the components undergo multiple checks as well.
