More and more people are now using Modular Buildings to expand their businesses, and with the number of advantages over a traditional build it’s easy to see why. It can take a lot of time and money to find the perfect building for your business, so why not have exactly what you want manufactured instead? Here are the top 10 reasons to incorporate a modular build into your next project.
A modular building can easily be expanded, relocated and even reused. So if your business is growing and you need more space, it’s not a problem. Or if you want to move to a new location, you can take your building with you. The flexibility of a modular build allows them to adapt to any future changes.
Prefabricated buildings are manufactured in a separate factory off-site, this means they can be assembled quickly and easily. The shorter time to install a modular building means that your business is disrupted for a fraction of the time of a traditional build.
Modular buildings require minimal fabrication and construction when on-site, this reduces the amount of dust and other contaminants that can be present. This also reduces the disruption time to your facility, and minimizes any issues with employee productivity.
Reduced Labour Costs
A modular building can be installed quickly and easily. Due to how quick the install is, the time needed for labour is significantly reduced, and is a fraction of the price when compared to a conventional build.
Ease of Coordination
Companies such as Cotaplan also offer a 10 year structural guarantee as a minimum requirement.
Reduced Design Time
Modular buildings are all pre-engineered, this reduces the amount of architectural and engineering time needed to design your building.
Consistent Appearance & Quality
A prefabricated building can be made to an exact specification, which means you can choose the colour, layout, interior & exterior finishes. They provide complete design consistency if you decide to expand or add to your current modular building.
Most modular buildings are manufactured to be extremely durable, and usually require little maintenance apart from an occasional surface clean. This means the cost of repainting, resurfacing and other maintenance issues that are related to traditional buildings.
Modular builds have a much quicker return on investment that conventional construction. The depreciation for a modular build is only 7 years, whereas for a traditional build it’s close to 39 years.
Modular builds use less construction materials, and can be manufactured from 80%-100% of recycled materials. This makes them extremely environmentally friendly and energy efficient. So there you have the top ten reasons to make your next project a modular build, not only are they energy efficient, low maintenance and quick to install, but they’re a fraction of the price. If you want to be able to design almost every detail of your building, and then be able to expand and move it to a new location, this innovative method of construction isn’t one to miss.
