MBI Foundations & Ryan Smith introduce a new Off-Site Studies research report on permanent modular construction:

Permanent Modular Construction
Process, Practice, Performance

This research studies off-site modular production processes using case studies in international permanent modular construction (PMC). The PMC projects documented herein provide a research test bed to evaluate the performance metrics attributed to off-site construction and the contingent qualitative contextual factors by which PMC in building design and construction may be realized. This research quantifies the added value of PMC and evaluates the contextual factors by which PMC in building design and construction may be realized in the U.S. and beyond. The scope of this research focuses on commercial construction and does not include single family residential. The research uses a case study method to compare PMC projects to traditional site built projects globally for construction performance parameters such as cost, schedule, quality, and safety. Both quantitative and qualitative data is collected through literature review, questionnaire and interviews. In addition to the comparative analysis, this report shares the results of an off-site industry survey, and a return on investment assessment demonstrates the lifecycle value of reduction in schedule as a result of modular. The study concludes with lessons learned and next steps.
