The main advantage of modular construction is the overlap of off-site building and on-site preparation and the time savings that comes with simultaneous progress. We pay a lot of attention to what’s going on off-site, as the individual modules are being built in assembly line procession by specialized workers. But what’s happening on-site during a permanent modular construction project?
While individual modules are completed up to 90% off-site, there is a lot happening on the final build site. This includes:
- Site drainage
- Foundation construction
- Utility installation
Using traditional construction methods, all the above steps would need to be completed in full before building construction could begin. This adds significant time to your overall project timeline and delays your ability to take occupancy of your building.
