When a business reaches the point where it needs to expand storage areas, employee facilities, or floor space, they often don’t have time to go through the lengthy steps involved in a traditional construction process, such as bidding, design, and many months’ worth of on-site labor. They need additional space as fast as possible – and without lengthy interruptions – to ensure that the business can continue to run smoothly and efficiently.
Modular construction – the process of erecting buildings using prefabricated modules – has become a popular and effective way for many industries to expand existing space or erect new facilities quickly and affordably. The benefits provided by this construction method line up well with an organization’s time restrictions and bottom line, making modular buildings the rational choice for business owners.
Why You Should Choose Modular Construction
Modular construction has risen to prominence largely because of its lower construction and labor costs, and its significantly reduced construction time. In fact, once a design is chosen and customized, many modular structures can be erected in as little as one day. Speed and affordability make this highly efficient method of construction a particularly ideal choice for businesses looking to quickly construct a space without breaking their budget. The shorter timeline means businesses can open their expanded space much sooner.
In addition to time and budget, modular components are pre-fabricated in a strict, quality controlled manufacturing facility, guaranteeing a higher level of precision and quality control during the manufacturing process, and higher ultimate quality and consistency in the final constructed building. Since the modules are safely constructed indoors and set up quickly on your site, there is also no risk of damage or corrosion from long-term exposure to environmental factors – such as heat, cold, and inclement weather – during the construction phase.
Prefabricated building designs are easy to customize and adapt, which ensures any new structures are easily adapted to fit in with existing branding and building designs used by your business. For customer-facing buildings, the interiors can be prepared in advance, saving additional time on furnishing and decorating.
Modular Solutions for Expansion Applications
When expanding your business, there are a number of suitable modular buildings that can be of use, such as:
- Locker rooms
- Exterior storage
- Conference rooms
- Lunch/break rooms
- Training rooms
- Team rooms
Most modular exterior buildings are also stackable, allowing for vertical expansion when horizontal expansion isn’t an option due to limited space. Modular solutions are typically suitable for brand new permanent buildings, or for expanding existing structures.
