Favorite excerpts showcasing cost effectiveness and technical innovation and sustainability of permanent modular construction:

Permanent Modular Construction (PMC) – PMC is an innovative, sustainable construction delivery method utilizing offsite, 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 utilizing only traditional site construction.”

“In order to get the replacement clinic operational as quickly as possible, Coney Island Hospital chose offsite construction as the solution. The “offsite” construction process ensured shorter site installation time as all the modules had been built together to ensure precision fit and finish at the plant before being deconstructed for transport.”

“Building this facility in a controlled environment and away from the site helped reduce time and costs in project management and general conditions.”

“Growing population demands brought expanded services to Southern Coos Hospital by this medical clinic addition, making the timeline for completion of the facility aggressive and imperative. Creating a fully turnkey facility in such a short timeline is a feat that could only be completed by modular construction.”

“Offsite construction simultaneously completed with on-site earth work and creation of a stem wall foundation allowed for a quick occupancy of the facility. Profitable use of the clinic was achieved quickly through a shorter timeline for construction.”
