This 1-minute video shows how simultaneous in-factory fabrication and site preparation allow modular construction to cut build times by up to 50%. Under the direction of the ModSpace Franchise and Retail Team, this project not only had an accelerated path to occupancy, but reduced material waste and comparatively less site disruption.
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.
