Repeatable design: The process of using a single set of architectural designs to create multiple and identical buildings.
When it comes to choosing the right building method for you, here are three good reasons to give repeatable design a look.
1. Cost Savings
With repeatable design, you get to design once and use it as many times as you like. The design is a one-time investment. You pay once, and use that design time and time again. You may even find a builder Continue reading →
Research and analysis firm McGraw-Hill Construction announced yesterday that it expects to see a 6 percent growth in U.S. construction in 2013. The projected increase would take construction starts to an estimated $483.7 billion.
“As reported by McGraw-Hill Construction, new construction starts in 2010 edged up 2%, followed by another 1% gain in 2011, and 2012 is headed for a 5% increase to $458 billion. This still leaves the volume of total Continue reading →
Building Information Modeling (BIM) software is transforming the way architect and construction firms do business and improving bottom-line earnings. As a result, the use of BIM over the last few years has been spreading like wildfire.
A recent report from McGraw-Hill Construction confirmed the trend citing that 71 percent of companies are now using BIM, versus just 17 percent in 2007. The same report also found that 74 percent of contractors are using BIM on some level compared to 70 percent of architects.
“Customers need to act fast and make smart, confident decisions about their suppliers,” says John Lieffrig, VP of North American Sales for ModSpace. “Price is important but when it comes time to make a decision, certainty of quality and service are equally important. The Ultimate Confidence Pledge assures our customers of competitive rates and speed of response and service.”
The ModSpace Ultimate Confidence Pledge delivers on three important drivers in their customers’ decision-making process:
Time to completion for new buildings is directly tied to return on investment. The ability to start generating revenue sooner accelerates ROI. In this video, ModSpace Construction Services VP and AIA architect Sam Tikriti talks about how modular delivers projects more quickly and its impact on ROI.
Green building is in demand, and here to stay. As the construction industry turns to new low-impact and recycled materials to create more efficient buildings, builders and developers should also be looking for new ways to reduce environmental impact without compromising ROI.
One option for new green building is the strategic reuse of modular structures. By refurbishing and reusing existing retired buildings, developers can cut costs and construction waste without compromising quality.
The new ModSpace Hartford branch is a great example of strategic reuse. The ModSpace team in Connecticut needed a new centralized office to replace its three aging facilities. The ModSpace Design-Build team seized the opportunity and went to work, turning our green and sustainable vision into a real space for business.
