About Modular Building Institute

::Our History

Founded in 1983, the Modular Building Institute (MBI) is the international non-profit trade association serving modular construction. Members are manufacturers, contractors, and dealers in two distinct segments of the industry - permanent modular construction (PMC) and relocatable buildings (RB). Associate members are companies supplying building components, services, and financing.

::Our Mission

As the Voice of Commercial Modular Construction (TM), it is MBI's mission to expand the use of offsite construction through innovative construction practices, outreach and education to the construction community and customers, and recognition of high quality modular designs and facilities. 

::Our Governance 

MBI is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of a minimum of ten persons elected by and from the regular and associate membership.

Committees are formed by volunteer members of the Board of Directors and may include members at large. These groups focus on short term, specific needs of the Association and membership, generally responding to emerging issues and trends.

The Executive Director of MBI is Tom Hardiman

::Our Code of Business Conduct Mission

MBI promotes integrity and quality in the modular industry by having its member companies subscribe to the enforceable MBI Code of Business Conduct.
