There are a lot of misconceptions about modular construction, and most of them are slowly being debunked, as the industry is taking up a large portion of the construction market, and for all the right reasons. The modular construction industry has changed significantly from the “a single-size-to-fit-them-all” box concept into more versatile modules being built for both commercial and residential purposes.
Moreover, residential and commercial modular construction is much cheaper and quicker than on-site construction. Plus, there are many companies nowadays that have a ton of experience under their belt and they offer flexible solutions to all types of clients. With that said, if you’re looking for residential or commercial modular housing, here are some of the benefits you should expect.
Reduced Building Time
Conventional house building can take a few months, and if the weather isn’t on your side, it can take even longer. On the other hand, modules are made in a closed, controlled environment, meaning there are no unforeseen delays. Additionally, the module is being built by an experienced team that has worked together on many other projects, unlike conventional construction where you have multiple teams that perform different tasks and aren’t always on the same page.
Engineering and Options
As briefly aforementioned, modules are built by companies that have a team of people who have worked together on a lot of projects. There are no trial and error processes, and there’s no need for improvisation. Additionally, modular construction methods allow for a wide range of architectural styles and designs.
Energy Efficient and Environmentally Friendly
Modular housing uses far less energy than traditional housing, and there are many pressure tests on all HVAC elements which ensure their ability meets superior standards. This means that modular housing is not only more affordable in terms of construction, but also in the long run. Additionally, modular housing benefits the environment, as there’s little to none material waste, and all construction is done within a controlled environment.
Modules are built with quality materials which are kept in a climate-controlled environment. This means the materials are clean and dry. Additionally, production methods allow modular construction companies to meet standards which are superior to those that are used for on-site construction projects. Typically, building inspectors look for code compliance but not level of quality. This also means that you don’t have to worry about any type of inspection, as the modules are built in compliance with all rules and regulations, ensuring that you will pass without a worry.
