Here is another article about the many benefits of using modular construction for your building needs. This article is about the many benefits of modular housing.
It is important to note that modular housing is actually quite different from commercial modular construction in terms of methodology and technique, but there are also many similarities, and share many of the same benefits. It is useful to compare the two fields because they both represent a new emerging pattern of thought in construction.
Modular housing usually consists of prefabricated “modules” that are manufactured in a factory. Unlike our modular building systems however, these modules are usually a complete room or facility or simply a larger piece of the building that is joined to other modules. Our building system, in contrast, consist of prefabricated universal panels and frames that eventually form buildings according to plan.
Housing modules, though different in practice, provide the same benefits that modular commercial construction provides. Housing modules are built indoors away from pesky external conditions such as weather and wear and tear, and so an entire portion of the construction process is streamlined in a factory setting, cutting down on waste, saving time, and minizing chances of damage.
Commercial modular building systems work a bit differently, in that they are comprised of universal panels that are installed to create flexible buildings, but they offer the same benefits: a reduction in construction time, increased efficiency, waste reduction, and protection from the elements.
We can see that the transformation of construction is happening dramatically across industries.
