What Is Modular Construction?
Modular construction is the process of manufacturing prefabricated buildings or structures in a facility off-site. Each component must be designed, engineered, and built to be structurally sound, which means a modular building has complete integrity.
In the traditional construction process, the design, engineering, and building disciplines are done separately. This can cause miscommunications or delays in the approval process. By integrating design, engineering, construction, and management, we are your one-stop shop for modular building.
While modular is a different form of construction, there are no limits to what is possible in designing a modular building’s features. Architects familiar with the modular can use elements and details specific to clients’ needs. We at Volumetric Building Companies encourage architects and engineers to interface so we have the perfect layout before production begins.
Investors who utilize modular construction are able to recoup their money faster & earn more per dollar invested. Modular design can make your construction schedule more efficient which creates a greater opportunity for generating profit. By reducing time, energy, and materials expended, modular construction also provides a more reliable projection of returns.
Real Estate Developers
The construction process in general is made up of thousands of different parts and pieces. Centralizing the labor force ensures consistent product quality and simplifies the process for the developer. Once production begins it is much easier for developers to balance their budget, timeline, and involvement.
Modular building can help general contractors leverage their construction output without a significant increase in their existing infrastructure. This simultaneously eliminates change orders or costly redesigns that slow down the project and present problems for your crew.
Design & Engineering
Design & engineering on modular buildings is done in an integrated fashion, expediting the approval process to ensure consistency..
Permits & Approvals
In-factory inspections add another level of safety, quality, and efficiency to modular construction compared site-built.
Factory Build & Site Development
On site crews ensure the foundation and utilities are completed while components are produced and shipped.
Install & Site
Everything comes together when the set crew installs and connects each module on-site.
When you go modular, your projects will have fewer change orders. They will be completed and opened on schedule and on budget.
