From private offices to locker rooms, modular in-plant buildings are a fast, affordable way to add space. Watch this short video to learn all the ways modular can be used to add productive space inside large facilities.
Construction codes and regulations are constantly changing, while new ones are added. Increasingly complex designs and tight specifications are making projects more challenging. Tighter budgets and timelines are critical to success. To deliver projects on time and as promised, construction teams must include a diverse set of skills, use the latest technologies and continually educate themselves on the latest changes and trends.
ModSpace has the largest in-house team of design and construction professionals in the modular building industry. The ModSpace Construction Services Team works alongside the company’s branch-based teams to create buildings with national know-how and consistency and the detailed understanding of regional and local requirements.
The architectural, structural and MEP team uses the latest BIM software (Revit) for demonstrating solutions at the early stages of a project. They also use a cloud-based project management system from Autodesk to keep projects on track.
This team of veteran estimators, project managers and administrative support operates under established procedures that include strict standards for safety, quality and project administration. They also use a customized estimating, pricing and proposal generation software that gives prospective clients more information, so critical project decisions are easier from the start.
The Construction Services Team recently convened for a week-long training and innovation summit at the ModSpace corporate office in Berwyn, PA. The summit kicked off with an in-depth review and discussion about new building codes and their implications.
Then team also met in smaller groups for more tactical discussions. The pre-construction group discussed emerging trends and best practices for scope of work development, needs assessments, developing effective solutions and estimating. The construction team spent their time training on safety, quality, documentation, communication, general project admin best practices. The design and development team evaluated new trends in architecture and engineering, especially in regards to new products and innovation in modular structures.
Though the summit has passed, training and innovation are an ongoing initiative for the entire Construction Services Team. Look for more information on the CS team and their project management tips soon.
