Urban Renaissance Development is committed to modular construction whenever possible. Modular is the process of constructing a building in a factory off-site using the same materials and standards as traditional housing built on site. These modules, which have interior finishes, fixtures and appliances installed, are shipped to the job site to be assembled into a complete home.
Here are the primary reasons why we believe that modular construction is not only the wave of the future, but an advantageous choice for both builders and residents.
One of the most significant advantages of modular construction is the amount of time it saves. Since a substantial portion of the construction work is done in a factory setting while site work is simultaneously performed, the overall construction time is reduced significantly. This process can be completed 30 to 60 percent quicker than traditional housing.
Modular construction takes place in a factory setting within a controlled environment, which allows for more consistent and precise construction. The materials used in modular construction are also subject to strict quality control measures to ensure that they meet or exceed industry standards.
Modular construction creates less waste and disruption on the job site since much of the construction work is done off-site. This also means that the site can be kept cleaner and safer, and there is less noise and dust for nearby residents and businesses.
Modular construction is typically less expensive than traditional construction due to reduced labor costs, material waste, and construction period carrying costs. Since the units are constructed in a factory setting, there is less need for on-site labor, and any excess materials can be reused in future projects. Savings on labor can vary widely, but there is a potential for up to 25 percent on construction costs.
Modular construction allows for flexibility in design and customization options since the units can be designed to fit almost any size or shape. This means that architects and builders can create unique structures that meet the specific needs of their clients.
Modular construction is designed to withstand the rigors of transportation, making the finished product generally stronger and more durable than traditional construction. In addition, modules are not exposed to harsh weather conditions and the potential damage due to water and other weather-related issues. This results in a more durable and long-lasting building.
Modular construction can be more sustainable than traditional construction methods due to its reduced waste and energy-efficient design and insulation that lowers utility costs for residents. Additionally, since the units are built in a factory and shipped to the job site, transportation emissions are also reduced. There are even efforts to maximize recycling with factories that put the building portions together.
