Modular construction is a design and construction method that is completed offsite. The construction involves three main stages: site prep and building of modules or components at a factory, delivery of units to the final destination, and installation and finishing on site.
First, going modular is a sound investment because it is durable, high-quality and environmentally friendly. The modules are made with highest quality materials and pre-engineered in a controlled facility, hence eliminating material exposure to weather, tradesmen shortcuts, and snags, and also reduces site traffic, safety risks, and community disruption. The cost of modular can also be lower than traditional construction. Finally, modular also increases its value over time, so investing in one is a good decision. As an investor, your project is often completed in about half the time, allowing your profits to be re-invested a lot sooner.
