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.

Most 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
From 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.
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
The 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.
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?
Greater Flexibility for Remodels
Any building is subject to wear and tear as the years go on, and modular buildings are no different. After several years of steady traffic, a permanent modular building will Read more
Across the country, office construction has seen a recent boom, thanks to technology companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. These multi-billion dollar firms are expanding rapidly, and looking for more space for offices and data storage.
A recent article, titled Demand from Tech Sector Helps to Reboot Office Market, from Engineering News Record (ENR.com), took an in-depth look into the recent “reboot” of office construction, highlighting cities like Seattle, San Francisco, and even Read more
