Modular construction is a process in which a building is constructed off-site, under controlled plant conditions, then assembled on location. But why choose modular?

Welcome to the Modular Building Institute
Founded in 1983, the Modular Building Institute (MBI) is the international non-profit trade association serving the modular construction industry. 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 the modular construction industry with building components, services, and financing. MBI has expanded its membership over the years to include architects, owner/developers, and general contractors, and collectively the members of the Modular Building Institute are designing and building the future of the modular/offsite construction industry.
As a trade association for the commercial modular construction industry, MBI works on behalf of its members around the world. Some of the most important work we do involves removing legislative barriers, helping to create industry-friendly codes and regulations, and connecting members with their local governmental agencies.
MBI organizes and partners with other organizations to offer timely and important conferences and events on the latest issues and trends affecting commercial modular construction. Topics include best practices, regulatory updates, factory tours, business conduct, safety, code issues, and much more.
As the international trade association for modular and offsite construction, MBI works with an extensive network of universities, researchers, and alliances from all over the world. In addition to our own annual reports, MBI collects research results, whitepapers, and third-party analysis to provide insight into this growing construction method.
