Modular homes and buildings offer greater project efficiency than site built structures.
The hallmark of modular home and building construction is project efficiency. With construction of modular homes and buildings, many aspects of the construction project can be performed concurrently eliminating many of the construction dependencies of legacy site built construction. Typically, the modular home or building is being constructed while the foundation is being completed on site. This is in stark contrast to legacy site built construction where the “above foundation” construction is dependent on the foundation completion and inspection. Because the structure of modular homes and buildings are being built in a factory controlled environment, there is very little down time and zero dependency on the final completion of the foundation. According to the Sage policy group, multifamily modular homes and buildings are increasing in market share relative to the industry as a whole. Multifamily modular homes and buildings now make up 3.02% of construction vs. 2.75 percent in 2015.
In addition to time and cost savings, modular homes and buildings offer advantages over legacy site built construction in respect to quality assurance. While off-site construction can be weather dependent, construction for modular homes and building components are weather independent. Modular homes and buildings are able to be built in a climate controlled environment. Building in a climate controlled environment offers protection of the structure to rain, snow, etc. while providing a consistent, highly productive manufacturing environment. Control over the weather, site conditions offers advantages in quality by protecting the structure, securing the tools, materials from theft and other external factors that may effect on site construction.
Supreme Modular recommends to those considering modular construction for the first time sit with a modular home professional to explain the benefits, differences and quality in modular construction compared to legacy site built construction methods. The modular home professional should explain lumber used, wiring techniques, inspections, energy efficiency and ultimately the total scope in relation to time and cost.
The future construction for modular homes and buildings looks bright. As more and more developers, architects, contractors collaborate on modular technologies you will see a surge in modular construction over legacy site built construction. When the benefits of modular construction cost, quality, speed, efficiencies are compared to legacy site built construction it is very reasonable to project a very, very bright future for modular construction.
