3 Benefits of Modular Construction

Modular construction is rapidly gaining popularity thanks to its ability to speed up the building process while also saving you money. Beyond these well-known benefits of modular construction, there are others you may not have considered.

The components of modular buildings are manufactured in a factory setting where the process can be streamlined for maximum efficiency. Workers have everything they need on hand, so they can perform their jobs faster. There’s less waste because excess material from one component can be reused for another. These factors make modular components less costly than similar structures built on site, saving you money overall.

Assembling modular building components requires less labor and equipment than constructing a traditional site-built structure. In particular, assembly requires less skilled labor, so the workers you do need will cost you less than a site-built construction project.

Because labor is one of the biggest and least predictable expenses in any construction project, reducing your dependence on skilled labor boosts your profits and makes budgeting easier.

Speed Up Your Construction Time

Completing a modular building takes up to 60 percent less time than completing a site-build structure. The design process is as much as 50 percent faster, in part due to less need for change orders.

The prefabricated components only need to be fit together, so weather conditions won’t cause construction delays. To further shorten your construction timeline, you can have the components completed at the factory while the building site is being prepared.

Improve Your Quality

During each step of manufacturing at the factory, modular building components undergo a quality control process. Any faults are corrected before the components leave the factory, greatly reducing the risk of problems with the completed building.

Flexibility is another of the valuable benefits of modular construction. Compared to site-built structures, modular buildings are relatively easy to take apart and move. They can be transported to another location and used for a different purpose, increasing the value the building owner receives from their investment.
