Modular Buildings – Discover the Possibilities

Modular buildings can save you time, money, and efficiency for your construction project. As every contractor knows, time schedules and budgets can make or break a project. That is why McDonald Modular Solutions has become a favorite resource for project managers and contractors for decades. Modular buildings offer a faster and more efficient way to complete your construction project. Modular commercial facilities are constructed in segments in a factory and are later assembled at the building’s site. This process offers a more convenient and practical option than constructing a traditional building. Modular buildings are constructed with the same quality and adhere to the same building codes as traditional site-built structures. If you are looking for a flexible and sustainable building in half the time, contact McDonald Modular Solutions today!

Benefits of Modular Buildings and Construction

At McDonald Modular Solutions, we know construction is complicated, but modular building allows for accelerated construction. In fact, our modular sections come 90% finished from our factories, made in a controlled environment, away from inclement weather. We don’t just save you money in the long run, we get you into your building quicker, wherever you are.

The Modular Building Institute provides an informative read regarding this topic in their Why Build Modular page.

Beyond saving you time and headaches, modular buildings have significant benefits over traditional building methods.

Modular building provides Environmental, Economic, Health and Community benefits.

Owners, Architects and Designers are looking to reduce costs and shorten construction schedules while still seeking high-quality, sustainable design and building materials.

Modular buildings are built to be re-used and relocated throughout their lifespan. The amount of energy and materials utilized in the relocation of a modular building is considerably less than in the traditional construction process. With each subsequent move, modular buildings save even more resources and decrease environmental waste.

Relocatable Modular Buildings

Modular buildings are extremely flexible: from additions to existing buildings to completely new construction.

Modular buildings are relocatable and able to be used for a variety of applications throughout their lifespan. From schools to factories to medical facilities, modular buildings meet the short- and long-term needs of customers across the country. After serving their purpose for one customer, the building is repurposed for another customer.

Units are built under controlled conditions and to desired specifications and codes. The construction project is less likely to experience delays due to weather conditions.

The units are easily relocated to remote areas, where skilled construction labor may not be readily available…better construction quality management.

Sustainable Modular Building Construction Quantified*

Modular construction has shown to be an inherently sustainable process. The University of Michigan’s Center for Sustainable Systems created the life-cycle analysis comparing conventional and modular construction.

Modular Construction Conventional Construction
Material Consumption 48,539 lbs 49,482 lbs
Material Waste 1,414 lbs 2,356 lbs
Solid Waste Generation 1,861 lbs 2,760 lbs
Supply Chain Miles Traveled 6,394 31,500
Total Transportation Energy 20.9 GJ 29.7 GJ
Lifecycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions 11,000 kg 20,900 kg

The Proof is in the Modular Construction Process

The most unique and quality-driven aspect of McDonald Modular Solutions lies within the actual construction process.

Using the latest CAD technology, every building is designed with speed and flexibility, incorporating all structural and code requirements. The buildings are constructed in a controlled factory environment so all materials remain dry and secure. This ensures that there are no project delays due to weather conditions. Then, because the buildings are modular in design, the building and foundation are built simultaneously. The entire project is finished faster, and with less scrap than a traditional project. In short, your entire building process is handled more efficiently with McDonald Modular Solutions.

From design to delivery, your factory-built building is completed on time and to your specifications. Quality craftsmanship and engineering are maintained through constant supervision and inspection as the building moves through the assembly line. We use a single point of contact throughout the entire process. So as the customer, you deal with one direct contact, which keeps you informed and in control.
From beginning to end, you can count on us to deliver the ultimate space solution for your specific needs. And if you have questions during the process, we are here for you every step of the way.
