Why Are Modular Buildings Affordable?
Project Speed – affordable modular buildings can be completed up to 50% faster than conventional construction, holding down project management expenses, insurance costs, and other time related expenses.
- Bulk material orders – all modular building manufacturers do is build prefabricated structures. This allows them to order a lot of materials that are used universally and store them in a weather controlled area for multi-project use
- Secure storage keeps materials protected– job sites are notorious for having lumber and other materials stolen causing prices for conventional construction to rise. Modular manufacturers are typically not in highly populated areas and have secure facilities with indoor storage to protect all their construction materials
- Consistency in the fabrication process – assembly lines give workers a consistent job that they do day-in and day-out, creating comfortable consistency for the plant employees and a reliable end product. Furthermore, quality control is easier done in a plant that uses an assembly line than on an unpredictable construction site, like conventional construction.
- Efficiency in the construction process – waste is a big concern on construction sites because materials are not transferred and re-purposed on another site, but rather discarded at the end of the project. Not so with modular construction! Excess materials can be stored by the manufacturer and used on another project, reducing waste on each modular building.
Labor – work to construct affordable modular buildings is performed off-site, so prevailing wages are not required during the building fabrication process
Safety – construction sites are unforgiving and building construction injuries can be costly, but the indoor manufacturing plants, where affordable modular buildings are fabricated, provide a predictable safe environment for all workers
It is important to understand that affordable modular buildings are constructed with the same, or very similar, building materials as conventional construction; and modular buildings are built to meet all applicable building codes.
