Prefabricated Buildings

Prefabricated Buildings

What is the first thing you picture when you think of prefabricated buildings? If uninviting, drafty trailers that roll around on axles and wheels come to mind, we encourage you to reevaluate. Today’s prefab buildings, otherwise known as modular buildings, offer endless choices for exterior and interior designs and floor plans and are hard to distinguish from conventionally built buildings.

Modular Genius is a turnkey modular building contractor. We specialize in high-quality design-to-occupancy modular buildings and have the knowledge and skills to meet the small- and large-scale space requirements, deadlines and budget challenges of residential, commercial, industrial and governmental customers across the nation.

With an experienced team of designers, engineers, project managers and field superintendents, we can also 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

    • installation of concrete/metal ramps and stairs, skirting & trim
    • sidewalk and parking lot paving
    • installation of gutters and downspouts
    • landscaping and signage

Key Benefits of Modular Construction

An obvious benefit of prefabricated buildings is that the sections are manufactured off-site in a factory, transported by truck to the building site, and then dropped by crane into place, shaving months off of the entire construction process. Here are several other advantages:

  • Unlimited designs and styles
  • Adaptable to any site, environment and purpose
  • Meet or exceed all state and local building codes
  • 10% to 40% less expensive than brick-and-mortar buildings
  • 40-50% faster to design and deliver than traditional design-bid-build construction
  • Minimal site preparation required
  • Can be relocated or repurposed to meet changing needs
  • Quick solution following fire or natural disaster
  • Average lifespan of 25 to 30 years; longer if permanently installed
  • Used buildings available for immediate delivery

Modular buildings can stand on their own as individual buildings or can be combined to create larger structures. While you may be familiar with one-story prefabricated buildings, such as portable office buildings on construction sites, they can also be multi-story structures in excess of 100,000 SF, complete with elevators. 

Prefabricated buildings also offer significant time savings for occupancy. They are built in a factory at the same time that construction site preparations (foundation and grading) are underway. Plumbing and electrical wiring are pre-installed, and quality control inspections are completed before the modules are delivered to the site at about 80% to 90% completion.

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

Whether you need a small insurance office or a sophisticated multi-story healthcare building, Modular Genius can deliver durable, modern prefabricated buildings that will handle any imaginable application. Contact us at (888) 420-1113 to put your ideas into action.
