Associate (Financing)

Launching a commercial/multifamily modular building project is an exciting venture, but it also comes with its unique set of financial considerations. That's where the Modular Building Institute (MBI) can become a reliable resource to find associates and contractors to fill your project needs. As an international non-profit trade association and the official Voice of Commercial Modular Construction®, MBI brings you options in financing associates with our directory for modular building companies. The insights and services these associates offer fit the financial profiles of both permanent modular construction (PMC) and relocatable buildings (RB). 

The Financial Specifics of Modular Construction

Traditional construction and modular construction are not the same when it comes to financial planning. The latter often demands a more significant upfront investment. All building materials need to be ordered in advance, given the off-site, controlled conditions under which the modular construction takes place. But it's not all about upfront costs. Modular construction stands out for its efficiency and sustainability, cutting construction time in half and reducing waste.
