Modular Case Studies

Modular construction, applied to the building industry, can be further segmented into commercial or residential markets. MBI serves commercial modular construction markets. For information about the residential modular industry, visit modularhome.org.

Commercial Modular Buildings are non-residential, factory-built structures designed to meet provincial, state, and local building codes. Commonly, these buildings are constructed in accordance with the International Building Code (IBC) or a version of a code modeled after the IBC.

Within the commercial modular building industry there are two distinct divisions, both represented by MBI:

 


PERMANENT MODULAR CONSTRUCTION (PMC)

Permanent modular construction is an innovative, sustainable construction delivery method utilizing off-site, lean manufacturing techniques to prefabricate single- or multi-story whole building solutions in deliverable module sections. PMC buildings are manufactured in a safe, controlled setting and can be constructed of wood, steel, or concrete. PMC modules can be integrated into site-built projects or stand alone as a turn-key solution, and can be delivered with MEP, fixtures, and interior finishes in less time, with less waste and higher quality control compared to projects that use only traditional on-site construction.

Relocatable modular buildings are designed to be reused or repurposed multiple times and transported to different sites.
