Modular construction offers permanent and temporary solutions.  While modular buildings are widely used for temporary offices, multistory structures can be constructed to accommodate multifamily and student housing.

Myth 2: Modular Buildings are low quality.

Modular buildings are held to the same International Building Codes, as well as the same state and local standards as “stick-built” structures.   Modular construction takes place in a factory, ensuring quality control and durable construction.

Myth 3: Modular Construction is too new of a process.

Modular construction has been used for decades, across all industries.  A detailed account of modular construction history dates back to 1837.  Large modular projects have been completed in Europe and Asia a including 220 floor skyscraper in China.

Myth 4: Modular Buildings and homes are unattractive.

Customization is quite possible with modular construction.  Consider our modular restaurant for Domino’s.   We customized the building to match the Domino’s branding and other franchise locations.

Modular construction is flexible enough to accommodate special design requests.

Myth 5: Modular Buildings are difficult to finance.
