Before you start planning your next construction project, here’s an infographic about the benefits of modular versus traditional construction that may help you determine which building method is right for you.
Healthcare administrators are constantly searching for new space solutions to improve patient care and profitability. As many look to add new satellite facilities or expand existing ones, modular construction is becoming increasingly popular. By building modules off site, hospitals and emergency clinics can reduce patient disruption and cut the time to completion by as much as half.

Unified Fire Services Area (UFSA) needed a new fire house for three full-time employees in Eagle Mountain, Utah. The building had to fit in a 24’ x 60’ area and it had to be ready in just 120 days. UFSA quickly realized modular construction was the best choice to complete the job on time.
ModSpace went to work on designing and building two 12’ x 60’ modular units that incorporated all of UFSA’s requirements; three bedrooms, two restrooms, a kitchen, a lounge and a space for a washer and dryer. They were delivered, installed and the building was ready for occupancy in less than 120 days.
“ModSpace was very easy to work with in getting changes and details into the plans,” said Cynthia Mathews, Regional Director of United Fire Services Area. “I was happy to have someone local to talk and meet with on the project.”

Like the weather across much of the country, construction is heating up this summer with good indicators for sustained growth. There’s no question that the last decade has been tumultuous for the construction sector.
