The Stages of Permanent Modular Construction
- Design approval by end user and any regulating authorities
- Assembly of modular components in a controlled environment
- Transportation of modules to project site
- Erection of modular units to form a finished building
Things to Consider
Getting started with modular construction requires the smart application of modular building practices. Pros and cons exist for every potential modular building project regardless of timeline, size, and complexity.
Modular construction is a more efficient form of construction but can grow in complexity if speed-to-occupancy is a key reason why you are considering modular. Decisions made early have the most impact on the overall success, or lack thereof, a project.
See the reports below that provide facts about the advantages and savings with “off site” construction. These resources are also available on our Modular Building Resources page.

The Guardrails of Construction
A recent report by McKinsey Global Institute found “construction is one of the few industries that is less productive now than it was 60 years ago” and goes as far as to refer to “lagging construction productivity as an intractable productivity problem.”
Greater use of technology in the field and information-sharing software is helping, but our progress as an industry can be better. Glenn Cort from Triumph Modular considers how with his Guardrail blog series.
