Modular Construction Overview

When to consider a modular solution for expansion or remodeling

Modular construction can provide a quick, clean and professional way to expand or remodel, due to the use of factory-produced, pre-engineered “modules” or building units that are delivered to your site and then assembled.

Modular construction, whether it’s for office space within a manufacturing facility, or to enclose equipment or clean rooms, follows the same codes and standards as conventionally built facilities, so there is no sacrifice of safety or quality.

There are specific situations in which a pre-engineered, modular solution may be the best fit for your needs.

You might consider a modular office or building when:

  • You need maximum flexibility
  • You need an economical way to expand or remodel
  • You need the space completed very quickly
  • Reduction of work site disturbance is critical

In addition, because modular is considered equipment rather than property, you can take advantage of a variety of financing options not available for conventional construction. For example, you may be able to depreciate a high percentage of your modular building in the year you buy it.


I didn’t have to manage individual projects and multiple contractors. With all the other projects I’m working on, having that one source to go to saved me a lot of time and let me focus on other things.
