Brett M Stevens of US-based start-up iBUILT examines the case for modular offsite construction in a Covid world
This white paper describes the multiple benefits of rapidly deployable, high-quality construction, enabled through offsite modular methods for healthcare.
iBUILT is focused on improving the built environment by using technology to address the inefficiencies, declining productivity and detrimental environmental impacts that have plagued the construction industry for far too long.
The iBUILT Fast Track Program recognizes the importance of getting to market quickly - before the competition. Unlike the conventional development process, the Fast Track program delivers a fully designed building in 30 business days.
Finding the best modular construction company starts with looking for the right qualities. This list will let you know where to begin.
As demand for office space grows, developers look to modularization to expedite construction timelines and reduce utility expenses.
Modular buildings consist of onsite foundations, structural frames, finishes, utilities, and marriage joints.
A modular building's lifespan varies, with some lasting as few as 20 years and others indefinitely—largely dependent on permanence and structural material.
Modular construction is being leveraged by a growing number of major hotel brands to increase efficiency and improve sustainability.
Modular building units are wrapped in protective covering, transported from a factory by land or sea, and permanently installed at their destination.
Modular student housing is popular among colleges and universities seeking to keep up with growing demand for on-campus housing while reducing construction delays.
Volumetric modular construction is a branch of offsite construction in which six-sided modular units, as opposed to two-dimensional components, are assembled in a factory and installed on-sit
McKinsey's report outlines several key benefits of modular construction, including significant cost and time savings, growth opportunities, and more.
Traditional onsite construction is susceptible to delays and overages. Here are some major causes of construction delays in tradition construction.
Committing to modular construction from the outset and selecting the best material, manufacturer and contract option are all important considerations.
Curious about modular building methods? Here's a brief history of modular construction to help you better understand its current rise in popularity.
Modular offsite construction maximizes efficiencies, saving time and money, since key building components are created simultaneously to those onsite, with less waste and cheaper labor via a factory assembly line.
The modular building construction process and stages differ from traditional methods and include pre-construction, onsite and offsite.
The two primary modular building materials utilized in the structural frames of most units are wood and steel, the latter possessing unique advantages.
Modular vs. prefab? What's the difference? Prefabrication is a broad category, which seeks to maximize efficiencies.
While productivity has been on the rise in virtually all industries, it continues to fall in construction. This loss of productivity is due largely to a shrinking workforce and an acceptance of waste.
Master Builders of the past managed every step of the pre-construction and construction processes to create beautiful and lasting building projects.
