  • The Advantages of Modular Garages

    A modular garage is a type of garage building that is manufactured in a factory similar to a prefabricated building. The main pieces of the garage are constructed in a factory using the same materials so that when the garage is erected at the desired location, it takes much less time and expense to build the garage. Modular garages can vary greatly in appearance. Some look like temporary carport structures, while others look as professional and detailed as a customized structure. Using modular garages rather than customized garages can provide...

  • Permanant Modular Buildings

    Modular buildings aren't intended only for use as temporary structures within larger buildings. Nor are they intended only for applications as temporary or movable security or information booths. Though it's true that modular buildings are popular temporary structures, and it's also true that modular buildings are popular for use as booths, they also are popular as alternatives to non-modular, permanent building construction. Modular buildings can be excellent choices for permanent building construction, and this is true for a variety of reasons. The principle reason for the popularity of permanent modular...

  • Building Systems - Strong and Reliable

    One of the misconceptions about manufactured buildings (also known as modular buildings or prefabricated buildings) is that they are not as strong as permanent structures. Certainly there are some cases in which this is true, but to say that prefabricated building systems are by nature weaker or less resilient than permanent structures is a misrepresentation. In some cases, building systems are better suited to harsh or stressful applications than are permanent structures. Consider the following. After Hurricane Andrew hit the southeastern United States in 1992, FEMA performed an analysis of...

Industry Information

Building Systems

Modular building systems are prefabricated long term temporary or semi-permanent alternative construction solutions to permanent buildings. Industrial manufacturing facilities, warehouses, construction sites, banks, storage buildings, parking garages, security systems and more use modular building systems to provide extra space or shelter.

Ranging from small booths, shelters or offices to larger schools, churches and medical facilities, there are a number of advantages to using modular style building over permanent building methods. All modular building methods are wholly prefabricated in a factory setting, and then completely or partially assembled into a building. The prefabricated pieces are then transported to the intended site location for installation by workers, often with the help of a crane or a forklift. As the buildings are not intended to be permanent features, some of them do not require a foundation to be attached to, although a level ground should at least be prepared to set the building on. The biggest advantage of using prefabricated buildings is in time savings. Buildings are constructed in a factory, thus minimizing the chances of delays due to weather conditions, subcontractor or labor delays and restrictions while waiting for building permits. Modular buildings are typically constructed by a standard, pre engineered design that does not need further approval or testing. The factory is able to run on a controlled timetable and produce constructed buildings ready for installation on already prepared sites.

Another major advantage to modular building is that it is a lot more cost-effective than conventional building in terms of equipment, labor and time used from design to building operation. Standard modular buildings are considerably cheaper than their equivalent in traditional building materials, and are not likely to result in high maintenance costs at any point. As they are constructed in a factory, modular buildings are held to strict code and quality standards, ensuring a quality product. While some modular building systems are used as permanent facilities, they are more likely to be considered long term temporary features and often are not designed to last more than a decade or two. Components of a modular office or building typically include a base, a frame from a material such as steel, aluminum or lumber, wall panels, doors and ceilings. Electrical wiring, interior lighting, insulation, plumbing, HVAC systems and temperature control units are all able to be installed in modular building systems according to the intended use of the space. They are also able to be custom designed to an extent with regard to layout, colors, trim and interior design.
