The Top 10 Reasons to Choose Modular Construction

There are several advantages to utilizing modular construction methods over traditional construction within the industrial commercial setting. The most obvious advantage is the flexibility that is inherent with modular systems. Since modular components are prefabricated, this allows buildings to be easily expanded, reduced or relocated to adapt with your changing business environment. Other major advantages include a quicker installation timeframe and less material waste due to the pre-engineered aspect of modular systems.

2 Quick Installation Modular components are pre-engineered so that they can be assembled quickly during installation. A shorter install time results in a minimized effect on overall plant productivity.
3 Clean Installation Prefabricated components require minimal on-site construction and fabrication, which reduces dust and other contaminants during installation. This results in less disruption to your facility and minimizes an effect on your employee productivity.
4 Reduced Construction Labor Costs Prefabricated components install quickly and easily. A quick install results in a lower cost of labor when compared to conventional construction.
5 Ease of Coordination PortaFab supplies single source installation through a factory-trained distributor network. This provides end customers with a turnkey process that includes local support and assistance.
6 Reduced Design Time Modular components are pre-engineered. This significantly reduces the amount of engineering and architectural time required to design your building.
7 Consistent Quality & Appearance Our attractive, integrated systems are manufactured to exact specifications. Standardized modular components provide complete design consistency throughout any additions or expansions.
8 Low Maintenance Our durable, prefabricated wall panels require little maintenance beyond occasional surface cleaning. This eliminates the cost for repainting, surface repairs and other maintenance associated with conventional construction.
9 Tax Advantages Depreciation for conventional construction is 39 years, while depreciation for modular construction is only 7 years. This results in a quicker return on investment.
10 Environmentally Friendly Less construction material is wasted when building with modular components. Read more. Companies can earn LEED points to improve their Green Building Rating.
