04 Sep Five Reasons to Choose Modular Buildings
Modular buildings are growing in popularity for construction projects. It’s no surprise, since precast concrete provides many benefits in terms of durability, sustainability and aesthetics. Modular buildings also represent many savings in terms of installation, labour and costs. Read on for our top five benefits to modular buildings.
When you opt for modular buildings, they arrive on site already constructed and ready to be erected. This means a reduction in labour and installation time. In comparison to conventional brick and mortar buildings, our modular buildings can be erected and completed in 1-5 days, depending on size. Also, the indoor construction process can take place alongside other on-site construction jobs like foundations work and there’s no need to worry about weather delays. The overall speed of construction on site is therefore faster than in traditional construction, leading to happy customers as well as cost savings. It also means less disruption to your business; you remove a large proportion of construction away from your site, meaning it will keep construction sites operating smoothly due to quicker installation and less work on site.
Some modular buildings are too large to be shipped to site already erected. We’ve made sure our modular buildings can be erected on site in as little as 2-3 days.
Concrete is non-toxic, eco-friendly and composed of natural materials. Traditional construction methods require extra materials that lead to increased waste, whereas the off-site construction process ensures less waste, and more opportunity to recycle waste materials. What’s more, the controlled environment of a factory allows for more accurate construction, tighter joints and better air filtration, which in turn allow for better wall insulation and an increase in energy efficiency.
Concrete is virtually maintenance free and reliable, resulting in overall cost savings for your project, and the peace of mind that your modular building will stand the test of time. Since they’re built in a factory, the materials are protected from moisture and weather during the construction process.
- Modular buildings are enclosed with caulking and weather stripping, ensuring a weather tight seal no matter the environment. There is the option for insulated buildings, providing even more cost savings and efficiency in cooler months.
- Buildings can be designed for post disaster and to withstand various winds and snow loads from Eastern Ontario’s geographical area. Many clients are looking for this reassurance with the risk of tornadoes and hurricanes.
- Buildings can be equipped with Alarms and Detectors, and Lighting options.
Secure and Fire Resistant
Modular buildings are non-combustible due to concrete acting as a fire retarder. You can opt for your building to be equipped with additional Fire Safety and Personal Safety options. They also provide a great source of security against intrusion and vandalism compared to metal siding buildings, for example.
Modular buildings are available in a variety of textures, colours, and finishes, giving many options to clients and making them suitable for many different landscapes. Buildings can be custom-made, with various floor systems, roof styles and doors. There are painted, troweled or broom finished floor systems. You can pick between tapered, pitched or gabled roof styles, for example.
Our modular buildings are available in a variety of textures, colours and finishes. Here are just a few patterns we’ve created.
When you opt for precast concrete modular buildings for your project, you gain the advantage of a faster, more cost-effective and efficient construction process. You can also rest assured the buildings are made with environmentally friendly materials, and will provide all the durability and safety you require.
