Benefits of Modular Buildings

Benefits of Modular Buildings

During the past few decades, new technologies have emerged, and there is virtually no type of building that cannot be designed and manufactured in a modular manner. The experts at Modular Genius explain the benefits below.

Modular Genius, Inc., located in Joppa, Maryland, provides design-to-occupancy turnkey solutions for permanent and temporary use commercial modular buildings for education, office, assembly, government and healthcare. We can also serve as general contractor for architectural renderings to foundations and site preparation to final paving and landscaping.

Benefits of Modular Construction

Cost/Time Savings – The modular building process reduces design and construction costs by 20% to 40% and cuts the construction timeline in half. Many projects can be manufactured and installed in less than 90 days. Building “modules” are manufactured off-site in a factory, transported by truck to the construction site, and dropped into place by crane, shaving months off of the entire process.

Quality Control – Modular buildings are constructed with the same or better building materials to more demanding tolerances and meet or exceed building, safety and occupancy codes. The construction process is precise, using accurate measurements to minimize waste and regular quality inspections throughout. Materials are carefully monitored and safely and securely stored, something that’s not easy to do on an exposed jobsite.

Innovative Design Capability – Built of steel, concrete and wood like conventional buildings, modular buildings can be designed to blend in aesthetically with surrounding structures. Façades can be finished in cut stone, brick, stucco, siding, and a wide variety of other finishes. State-of-the-art 3-D and 4-D design capabilities make them suitable for a wide range of uses, both temporary and permanent.

Disaster Recovery – Portable modular buildings can be quickly deployed after a fire, flood, earthquake, tornado or other devastating natural disaster to get students back to normal or health clinics and businesses up and running as soon as possible. 

Sustainable – Modular buildings can be enhanced with eco-friendly insulation, energy-efficient utilities and low-VOC or no-VOC floor and wall treatments to reduce the building’s environmental impact. High-performance products, such as dual pane windows, acrylic skylights, motion-controlled light fixtures, sealed lightweight concrete floors, and sprayed polyurethane roofs can be incorporated to help reduce the project’s carbon footprint.

Modular Applications

Modular buildings are available in a wide variety of sizes to fill the need for everything from museum swing space to multi-story office buildings to hospitals to complete school campuses.

Modular Offices – Ideal for real estate sales offices, law offices, jobsite/construction offices, park visitor centers, security offices, and any other permanent or temporary office you can imagine. Get your business up and running quickly, and generate revenue without waiting for a traditional design-bid-build construction project to be completed.

Modular Classrooms – Modular classrooms are an ideal solution for temporary or permanent science labs, libraries, daycare facilities, music rooms, media centers, gymnasiums, bookstores, and teacher lounges, and are well-suited to companies that need temporary employee training centers or call centers. 

Modular Healthcare Facilities – From digital imaging facilities to medical office space to testing labs to patient rooms, nothing is too large or difficult. Modular buildings enable medical and dental clinics, research laboratories and community hospitals to reduce costs, enjoy a higher return on investment, and accelerate construction timelines.
