Temporary vs. Permanent Modular Buildings

Modular buildings can be temporary or permanent and will depend on your budget as well as the building’s purpose and architectural style and your long-term needs. While temporary structures are quick solutions for temporary purposes, many people do not realize that prefabricated building designs can be used to build many remarkable permanent modular buildings with complete customization.

Temporary Modular Buildings

Temporary modular buildings, also known as portable modular buildings, are designed to be easily dismantled and relocated. They are economical because they can be purchased, leased or rented, and are ideal for classrooms, construction site offices, sales offices, and in instances of natural disaster.

Temporary modular buildings are not usually affixed to real estate. They are typically installed on and anchored to concrete pier foundations. The crawl space is enclosed with skirting material, and ramps and/or steps are added for access to the exterior doors.

Temporary modular buildings typically offer a pre-designed layout with limited customization options. They are primarily made of wood, are very durable, and can be relocated numerous times throughout their service lives.

With proper care, temporary modular buildings have a service life of at least 25 to 30 years, after which the components are typically repurposed or recycled.

Permanent Modular Buildings

Permanent modular buildings offer virtually endless design possibilities. Single and multi-story structures can be built for nearly any conceivable purpose, with a myriad of interior and exterior finishes, and architectural features.

Since permanent modular buildings are not intended to be relocated, they are constructed of concrete and steel or wood framing and allow for site-built roofs, concrete floors, stairwells and elevators, custom layouts, and a wide range of customization.

Permanent modular buildings are well-suited to schools and complete campuses, office buildings, hospitals, military housing and more. They are typically installed on and fastened to a full perimeter foundation with the intention of remaining there for long-term use.

With proper care, permanent modular buildings have a lifespan of at least 50 years.
