Why Use Permanent Modular School Buildings?
COST SAVINGS: Modular construction for permanent buildings is an effective solution to reduce and control construction costs. While prices are generally similar to stick-built, off-site construction adds predictability, reduces change orders, and increases speed to completion.
TIME SAVINGS: The modular construction method allows for an accelerated time frame and faster occupancy for schools that need space fast. Modular construction affords efficiency. Thereby, the total time from conception to completion of a new building can be as little as six months.
QUALITY: We build prefabricated building components to specific tolerances, in a controlled environment, outside of the rain and weather, and by repetitive teams of skilled laborers. Indeed, our process places emphasis on using pre-designed elements. Hence, we take advantage of repetition to reduce variability in the work.
ENVIRONMENT: Modular construction is inherently green and environmentally friendly. First, modular processes include the procurement of materials in bulk. Second, our process reuses construction waste in-factory. Third, modular methods lessen the impact on the surrounding environment on-site. Lastly, our process reduces construction time.
HEALTH: In the permanent modular process, design teams incorporate features like mold-resistant dry wall, improved ventilation systems, and natural lighting. The modular process is an alternative to conventional construction. We make no shortcuts to meeting the goals of a healthy environment, reduction of allergies, and maximization of occupant health.
PERFORMANCE: The quality of a learning space can directly impact student performance. Thus, high performance schools can and will have a real and measurable effect on learning outcomes.
INNOVATION: Off-site construction is an innovative and modern alternative to the old way of school and building construction. Today’s modular professionals and trade partners use the most advanced methods of design and construction. As a result, they often seek a merger of design and construction disciplines.
CUSTOMIZATION: Modular buildings can be more flexible than traditional brick and mortar buildings. The key is to design specifically for adaptability.
