Shifting The Construction Process
The future of construction is incredibly bright with shifts in improved technology, sustainable building components, and buildings that are designed from the ground with the environment in mind. What does the future of construction actually look like?
It is amazing to think that methods of production popularized by Henry Ford about 100 years ago are one of the primary methods being used to improve the construction industry. Construction in the past consisted of hauling raw materials, tools and workers to the build site and doing all the work there. A newly popular method of construction is looking to change that process by shifting where all the “heavy lifting” takes place.
The ever famous “assembly line” was used to speed up production, and trained workers focused on their section of expertise. This method worked amazingly well for manufacturing automobiles, and when applied to construction it can save time, money, and make the whole process easier for the construction.
Modular construction is similar in that all the fabrication takes place in a factory. This controlled environment makes for a smooth and speedy production process that consistently upholds a high quality controlled standard. Additionally, the factory environment has all the necessary tools and equipment, and multiple components of the construction project can be worked on at the same time.
The best part about this whole process is how much better it is for the environment than conventional methods of building. Construction waste is reduced significantly and excess material can be recycled. Additionally, the carbon footprint is smaller as raw materials don’t need to be hauled to the site and then waste removed, as well as the transferring of laborers and equipment.
In conclusion, modular construction is the smart choice that is not only better for the environment, but can also save time and money. Modular construction can do just about anything that conventional construction can and completed in typically less than half the time. We’ve been creating modular offices, partition walls, modular buildings and many other modular structures for over 25 years. Our modern modular solutions have helped business of all sizes save time and money and maximize space.
