Modular Building Construction Process

Modular Building Construction Process

Prefabricated modular buildings from Modular Genius make it possible to manage your budget without sacrificing quality. The construction process involves building individual modules in a controlled factory setting, transporting them to the construction site, and dropping them into place with giant cranes to form a finished building.

Modular Genius manufactures both relocatable modular buildings that are ideal for swing space as classrooms and other temporary uses when you plan to eventually take the module apart and reuse it elsewhere, as well as permanent modular buildings that serve as complete school campuses, office buildings, medical and dental facilities, retail and recreational spaces, churches, museums, banks, and a wide range of other applications.

Choose from a wide range of exterior and interior designs and single or multi-story floor plans.  Integrate impressive entrances, customized rooflines, canopies, porticos and unique door and window treatments. 

After identifying each customer’s needs, the Modular Genius team designs buildings that are both functional and attractive and intended to blend seamlessly into their surroundings. The design options are unlimited, and, once completed, it’s difficult to tell a modular building apart from a conventionally built building.

With a complete team of designers, engineers, project managers and field superintendents, Modular Genius can serve as general contractor for all aspects of the modular construction process, including:

  • architectural renderings
  • national, state and local building code compliance
  • civil engineering, permits and zoning services
  • site preparation, including excavation, grading and foundations
  • factory manufacturing
    • steel framing and floor decking
    • installation of mechanical, electrical and plumbing services
    • application of drywall, interior painting and flooring
    • installation of windows and doors
    • exterior hardware & trim, including stone and brick masonry
  • transportation over the road in sections to the building site by specialized carrier
  • assembly on prepared foundation and seamed together
    • completion of utility connections
    • installation of concrete/metal ramps and stairs, skirting & trim
    • sidewalk and parking lot paving
    • installation of gutters and downspouts
    • landscaping and signage
  • In-house and 3rd party licensed inspection and quality control

Factory manufacturing is unaffected by weather and delays on the construction site. This enables customers to occupy their modular buildings about 50% sooner than conventional buildings, which translates to significant savings.

The process is also very precise, and regular quality inspections in the factory reduce the potential for errors. The fact that the modules must sometimes be transported long distances also means they are built from the outset for durability and better moisture protection.

Modular Genius has manufacturing facilities throughout the United States which means that the modular buildings can be fabricated as near as possible to your location.
