Q. Can you finance the project?
A. Yes, we offer up to 7 year terms.
Q. Can you help us with the design of the building?
Q. Can you provide “Turn Key Services”?
A. Yes. We can pull the permits, hook up utilities, etc…
Q. Can you provide New and Used buildings?
A. Yes. We can custom design and build your project. We also have building already available in our inventory.
Q. What are modular buildings?
A. Modular buildings are constructed in a controlled factory environment and shipped to the prepared building site for installation. Modular buildings are installed on site for temporary/relocatable or permanent applications.
Q. What is the quality of materials used to build modular structures?
A. Modular structures are built to the same specifications, with the same name brand material as conventional construction: wood grades, plumbing and electrical materials, fire walls, etc. Modular buildings must meet all the same local and state building codes as conventionally constructed buildings. As for interior design, the customer may select the wall and floor coverings, window treatments and other custom features.
Q. What are some advantages of modular construction?
A. The most significant advantage of modular construction is time savings. Site-built buildings are subject to weather conditions, subcontractor deals, waits for permits, and labor shortages. Modular buildings are built on a controlled timetable in a factory environment. Typically a standard commercial modular building can be constructed in as little as 30 days. Time savings also occur because site preparation can be completed while the building is being constructed at the factory. Modular construction also provides a cost saving due to standardization of the engineering process, bulk purchase of building materials and the controlled factory construction environment. As a result, a standard modular building can cost up to 30% less than a traditionally constructed building. An additional advantage is gained in the quality of construction. A standardized construction method with skilled and knowledgeable labor means a building is not dependent on the vagaries and availability of the local labor market.
Q. How long has modular construction been in use?
A. The industry has its beginnings in the post World War II era, when the huge demand for housing for returning GI’s overwhelmed the construction industry’s ability to deliver. Pre-fabricated modular housing was developed as a solution to this demand. Other countries with severe commercial building needs following the war, also developed simplistic modular construction techniques. In the following decades, technological advances have increased the quality of those initial efforts, as well as opened the door to new applications of modular construction.
Q. What are some of the unique uses for modular buildings?
A. Today, modular construction is used in almost every industry and walk of life. Construction offices, educational facilities, medical facilities, industrial uses, prison and correctional housing and administration, branch financial offices, real estate offices, government buildings, and general commercial offices.
Q. What is the future of modular construction?
A. Due to the significant time and cost savings, modular buildings will be used for ever increasing applications. In 1980, the modular construction industry totaled more than $250 million, and is expected to exceed the multi-billion dollar range in the 1990′s and beyond. We believe that more than 75% of all buildings will be built using some form of modular construction within 10 years.
Q. What is the difference?
A. The Modular Building System is a state-of -the-art design/build system that far exceeds the services offered by most conventional construction companies. Engineers and architects provide detailed need’s analysis and planning, supervise all design and engineering specifications, and coordinate all communication with city and county officials. Project managers handle permitting, site preparation, on-site construction supervision, interior/exterior finishing and landscaping.
