Modular Buildings

What is Modular Construction?

Modular buildings are sectional prefabricated buildings that are manufactured in a plant and then
delivered to the customer in one or more complete modular sections. These units are typically constructed in an enclosed facility where poor environmental factors are not allowed to hinder the construction timeline. Contrary to traditional construction practices, modular building construction is a very cost effective and timely venue for quality production.

The Modular Advantage

Modular building construction has many advantages over traditional construction. Modular buildings and portable buildings offer significant advantages compared to conventional buildings, including:

  • Shorter Construction Ttime
  • Reduced Site Disruption
  • More Consistent Quality
  • Financial Savings
  • and Flexibility of Use

The benefits of temporary buildings, portable buildings and permanent modular buildings have resulted in widespread acceptance of modular construction as a better alternative than conventional construction. Today, individual modular building components can be built in state-of-the-art facilities at the same time as site preparation, saving you time and money. Once on site, architectural details can be added, making the modular project indistinguishable from conventional construction.

Why Universal Modular?

Modular construction is the only construction method available that allows for building construction and site work to proceed simultaneously with a faster schedule and without sacrificing safety or quality. Unlike conventional construction, modular allows for the possibility of future expansion and relocation. Modernized technology and transportation now allows for the majority of the project to be completed in an off-site construction facility, thereby reducing risk and problematic scheduling concerns.

In addition to faster completion schedules, Modular construction also provides flexible, cost-effective financing arrangements. For example, leasing arrangements and significantly accelerated depreciation schedules can make modular facilities an extremely economical alternative to your specific construction needs.

Our customers prefer modular buildings for a number of reasons:

Speed: Decreases Construction Time

By employing an accelerated production method, the building can be constructed in less time than most architectural drawings take to get approved. Modular construction eliminates bottlenecks and site related delays. Contract to occupancy can be as much as 60% less than conventional site built construction. Modular construction decreases design and construction time by up to 50%, with fewer change orders, earlier occupancy and improved cash flow.

Quality: State-of-the-Art Facilities

Universal Modular Building Solutions, Inc. utilizes state-of-the-art facilities that integrate best practices in design and workflow. Modular buildings are required to meet the same building codes as traditional construction. That means that you get the same quality, durability, and longevity with modular buildings as you would with conventional construction.

Scheduling: Reliable Timeframe

Modular buildings are completed in manufacturing plants, so the modular building construction is never delayed by weather conditions and always occurs within a set timeframe. Because site preparation can take place while the modular building is being constructed, you’ll be operating in your new facility faster than ever.

Financing: Valuable Savings

Modular buildings save money because of reduced labor and material cost savings. Off-site construction maximizes labor efforts and quality while minimizing material purchases and waste. Modular buildings give you great financial options; you can lease your portable building, purchase it outright, or select a lease-to-own plan or guaranteed buy-back option. Modular design and building techniques are an excellent solution to meet the needs of all types of industries to deliver state-of-the-art, cost effective services in a timely manner.

Flexibility: Temporary or Permanent

Flexibility and relocatability of modular components add to the cost-effectiveness over time. Universal Modular builds both temporary (portable buildings) and permanent modular buildings. Their durable, secure and relocatable characteristics make them ideal for both temporary and permanent applications that will meet the requirements of any industry.

Quality Control: Total Engagement

Quality control is built into every step of the modular building process. Each component is inspected at every phase and approved by third-party inspectors, complying with precise specifications and codes. Streamlined scheduling, trade coordination and construction sequences optimize quality control on the jobsite. Universal Modular provides the benefits of standardization and quality control of all product components and installation labor.
