Modular Facilities Help Energy Producers Move Quickly, Even in Remote Locations

California recently passed a law that requires the state to “generate half of its electricity from renewable sources such as solar and wind by 2030,” according to a recent article in the Los Angeles Times.

The landmark legislation is intended to further reduce air pollution across the state, but especially in Los Angeles and Riverside counties where air quality has been at unhealthy levels for decades.

The Golden State is a long-time leader in renewable energy. But 50% in 15 years is a monumental challenge. As energy producers and their suppliers rush to develop new facilities to meet the new requirements, ModSpace is ready to help with a range of temporary and permanent modular building solutions that can be ready quickly, even in the most remote locations.

Watch the video below to learn how ModSpace helps energy companies move quickly in California and throughout North America.

Study Confirms Modular Construction is Faster, More Affordable

Study Confirms Modular Construction is Faster, More AffordableWe’ve been talking for years about the speed and cost savings of modular construction. So naturally, we weren’t the least bit surprised to hear about a recent study that confirms modular construction is both faster and more affordable, cutting construction times by an average of 45% and costs by 16%.

As construction times are shortened, ROI increases. Researchers found that a 25% cut in construction schedule yielded an average savings of $5.81 per square foot. For schedules cut by 50%, savings increased to Read more

Disaster Recovery Test… Are You Ready?

Past studies by the Department of Homeland Security have confirmed that businesses that reopen within days of a major disaster are up to four times more likely to resume normal operations, even thrive. Many businesses that are unable reopen quickly never reopen at all.

Our friends at Agility Recovery know how to get operational quickly after a disaster. Watch this video and see how their own team performed in a disaster recovery test.

5 Big Benefits of In-factory Construction

In-factory modular constructionMost people know that in-factory construction is faster than traditional, site-built construction. But there are several more advantages to in-factory building. Here are a few that may impact your decision on where to build.

1. Precision Assembly

The repeatable nature of in-factory construction allows builders to continuously improve equipment and processes that cannot be reproduced onsite. Cuts and connections are practiced and confirmed accurate.

As the building proceeds through the assembly line, frequent checks confirm strict adherence to specifications. Components that fail to meet specifications are corrected Read more

Modular Minimizes Impact of Healthcare Construction on Patients

modular healthcare constructionFrom hospital expansions to standalone urgent care facilities, modular construction is quickly becoming the building method of choice for healthcare providers in need of new or additional space. According to Healthcare Design, 49 percent of the industry’s new construction is modular. The trend was confirmed in the McGraw-Hill Construction SmartMarket Report on prefabrication and modularization which named healthcare as the industry best suited to take full advantage of the benefits of modular construction.

Greater flexibility, repeatability and significantly reduced time to occupancy aren’t the only reasons modular construction is so appealing to healthcare facilities. Minimal disruption to patients and hospital operations is another compelling reason why so many are choosing modular.

While construction is underway in the factory, comparatively less foundation work is completed onsite. Once the building modules are complete, they are delivered to the site and installed in a fraction of the time of similar traditionally built structures. As a result, hospital operations commonly go unaffected, patients can get needed rest and buildings are completed in as little as half the time. This allows healthcare providers to offer new and better services to more patients, sooner.

In the event that construction does shut down a medical facility, temporary medical buildings can be brought in to allow doctors to continue to provide care. With this in mind, we’re certain modular will continue to be a popular option for new healthcare construction.

5 Ways to Improve Oil and Gas Worksite Productivity with Modular Buildings

Modular buildings are an optimal solution for improving remote oil and gas projects as companies expand into new, untapped locations. Buildings can be quickly transported and setup almost anywhere to meet a variety of needs.

Watch this video to see a time-lapse of a large workforce camp installation. Then read on below to learn about the top five ways oil and gas companies can create a perfect worksite with modular buildings:

1. Project Management Offices

Onsite mobile offices allow managers to oversee projects and worker productivity firsthand. Offices can be built to any size or configuration and sections can be added or Read more

Prefabricated Construction: A Closer Look at 6 Prefab Building Methods

In-factory modular constructionThe term prefabricated construction leads many to think about complete structures built in a factory which are then transported to the site and set on a foundation. While this building method is becoming increasingly popular, there are other ways builders are using factory precision and efficiencies to create quality structures.

In the book Prefab Prototypes: Site-Specific Design for Offsite Construction, Mark and Peter Anderson detail six different types of prefabricated systems. We thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at each.

Typically used in roofing, these frames are built from long pieces of laminated timber, covered by a plywood or other board roof deck. The frames can be up to 72 Read more
