The benefits of modular buildings
Modular buildings have some real advantages over conventional construction techniques, in terms of:
- ✓ Cost
- ✓ Build time
- ✓ Carbon footprint
- ✓ Quality and consistency
- ✓ Flexibility
- ✓ Running costs
Modular buildings are significantly cheaper to create than conventional structures – a new modular building can be up to 35% cheaper.
This is because the modular building process is:
- ✓ Faster
- ✓ Less labour intensive
- ✓ Not impacted by bad weather
- ✓ Conducted off-site
- ✓ More efficient – using fewer materials and creating less waste
This creates cost savings throughout the process in terms of:
Labour, Fuel & transport, Delays and site disruption, Waste and Material costs.
In many cases, modular buildings can also be reused, repurposed and relocated.
By choosing to purchase a used modular building, it’s possible to make savings of around 50% on the cost of building a traditional structure from scratch using conventional methods.
