Many online outlets have Offsite and Modular Construction as commercial trends to watch for in the new year.
Modular and Offisite Construction continues to grow, and people are starting to take notice. What does that mean for our clients?
This method of building isn’t going anywhere, and it’s built with scalability in mind. As you need more space, more space can be added on.
But you don’t have to take our word for it. Click on the attribution to each quote below to read what others think of the method and the market.
“Prefabrication and modular construction have both become more popular over the last year or so, and it isn’t hard to see why. Both trends are energy efficient and cost-effective, which is ideal at a time when most material prices are rising, or high already!
– ConstructConnect“Companies and corporations are still discovering the wide range of benefits offered by modular construction. Almost 40% of low-rise office buildings worldwide incorporate modularly constructed elements. However, the home construction sector has been slower to adopt modular construction, having built only 2% of new single-family homes using modular techniques.” – Thomas“Because prefab and modular items are built in a factory instead of on-site, construction teams and companies worry less about weather risks and worker safety on-site. Excess prefab materials are also recycled when they’re damaged or unused, so companies cut back on waste as well.” – Aproplan
“Part of the construction industry trends we’ll continue to see into 2019 will probably be modular and prefabricated construction projects. Modular construction companies are making the news, in part because of the rate at which they can build residential and commercial buildings. Modular construction is a prefabricated approach to building repetitive structures. So office buildings, hotels, apartments and other such buildings are great for modular and prefabricated buildings.” – eSub
“In the past few years, modular construction techniques have continued to grow, especially in the residential construction sector. Advancements in modular design have given rise to more affordable structures that use better construction materials and take a shorter time to complete.” – Buildsoft
“The modular construction market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.9% from $112.4 billion today to $157 billion by 2023. And buildings constructed through offsite, prefabricated modular units are stacking increasingly taller.” – ConstructionDive
As you can see, this isn’t a niche or a fad. Modular Construction is a viable option that will continue to grow in the marketplace. The market just has to change the way it thinks.\n\nDo you run a publication that talks about Modular Construction and Fabrication? If so, drop us a line for us to keep tabs on your posts.
