ModSpace remodeled temporary modular buildings for the construction of its permanent office in Hartford, CT.

A traditional building renovation can be a big undertaking. Not only does it mean months of planning and design for the remodel itself, but it also means making arrangements for displaced workers, and dealing with site disruption, which will go on for months.

When it comes to initial building, modular construction is generally faster and more efficient than traditional construction, giving businesses a greater return on their investment. Yet, does the same hold true when it comes to a remodel?

Myth or Reality: Are Modular Buildings Lower in Quality?

Watercrest Sales Center 300x177 Myth or Reality: Are Modular Buildings Lower in Quality?There’s no shortage of misconceptions about modular construction.

Inside the Ultimate Antarctic Research Station

¬ BAS Halley VI Inside the Ultimate Antarctic Research StationWe’ve said before that modular is an ideal building method when it comes to adding facilities in remote locations. Well, it doesn’t get any more remote than Antarctica. It’s desolate landscape and unforgiving weather make it inhospitable for humans to live and work. Yet, when the British Antarctic Survey (BAC) needed a state-of-the-art research facility to house its team of scientists and researchers at the South Pole, they chose modular for their base of operations. Built off-site and shipped to Antarctica in sections, the assembled Halley VI Research Station allowed the BAC to conduct important research on matters of global, environmental importance.

Commissioned in 2006, the Halley VI Research Station took four years to complete and is Read more
