Among the many modular wall users are doctors and dentists, retailers, manufacturers, salon owners, governments (and armies), airports, researchers, pharmaceutical producers, security agencies, tech companies, photographers, music studios, educators, vendors, sports arenas, and the list goes on.
So what does this tell us? Well, modular walls are widely used, that’s for sure.
The fascinating thing is, they are so widely used and fitted to so many purposes, but all of those applications are derived from the same wall panel.
In the past, a construction company had to put up walls using concrete and wood and drywall, which used up large amounts of time, energy, and resources. Not only that, but when the walls no longer served their purpose, they had to be torn down and thrown in a landfill. Each of these walls was specific to a certain purpose. As purposes changed, the walls had to come down, bringing time and waste with them.
Now, walls are actually manufactured as panels, where they can be fitted together to create virtually any kind of building to serve any kind of function. Soon we will go down to the store and grab a couple of walls along with our furniture to expediently furnish a room or office. And like furniture, those walls can be moved wherever we go and placed wherever we want them to be placed.
Anything that requires walls and a ceiling, or even just walls can be accomplished with one universal type of wall panel.
We cut down on waste, energy usage, labor use, and at the same time allow for more flexibility in our constructions. What an exciting new way to look at construction!
Of course, in the last few months I’ve been beating this point into the ground. But maybe I can’t beat it into the ground enough.
It is exciting to think about where the industry will go next.
