Off-site Construction Projects Are Gaining Popularity Around The Nation

Tomāto, Tomăto. Two ways of referring to the same thing.

No matter how you slice it (ha!), everyone envisions a highly delicious, extremely versatile, and incredibly nutritious fruit loved by millions. The same applies to certain types of buildings being built in rather non-traditional ways – inside controlled manufacturing facilities rather than at the actual job site. Whether you prefer to call them prefabricated buildings or modular construction, buildings with a majority of their shell manufactured off-site have been gaining popularity with contractors and developers around the nation as an alternative to traditional building methods.

Why Are Prefabrication Buildings Popular?

The primary benefits include: reduced construction time, reduced waste materials, and increased cost effectiveness. This is occurring because many construction companies are still struggling to adequately staff job sites with competent workers while being able to stick to rigorous project constraints. As a result, some companies have turned to modular construction as an option that offers more stability and certainty.
