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 here in their Why Build Modular page.


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.


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.
