Value Added Benefits of Modular Construction:
Value Added Assessment of Modular Construction Methods
Quality Engineered Structures delivers higher value added goods and
services through the utilization of modular construction components and
methods. The typical construction plan offers many unseen activities and end
results that can be improved upon with modular construction systems and
techniques. Contractor selection based solely on pricing with typical
conventional construction methods will typically mitigate many net value
added services provide by modular construction methods.
Greater Modular Experience:
With over 25 years experience in modular construction from assembled
modular buildings and subassemblies of modular components Quality Engineered
Structures counts on additional labor savings through not migrating through
a learning curve on the products we offer. Whether healthcare, commercial or
residential we have the design experience to value engineer your
construction plans utilizing modular construction methods or design from the
start with modular construction methods.
Primary Design and Engineering to Modular Methods:
Whether an assembled building or panelized modular construction
system value added benefits can be derived from designing and engineering
all assembles of components with modularization as the primary design
principle. This will result in lower initial cost and cost on future
renovations, relocation or upgrades. Exteriors, interiors, and all
utilities can be designed and engineered with modularization and
prefabrication as the primary design.
Lower Insurance Cost and Risk Management:
Modular construction attains higher quality results with less on site
labor. Less labor results in fewer subcontractors and lower possibilities of
insurance claims from workman's compensation injury, damage to surrounding
areas, or risk of subcontractor performance. This results in lower cost
liability and workman's compensation premiums passed on to the project. Modular
construction methods reduce onsite labor by approximately 40% in most of our
Improved Construction Productivity and
Greater use of modularization, preassembly, and off site fabrication
techniques has repeatedly shown to increase job site productivity and
efficiency by great percentages throughout the capital facilities sectors.
Utilizing modular construction methods in healthcare, commercial and
residential construction projects also vastly improves, quality, timeliness,
cost effectiveness and sustainability.
Tax Advantages of Modular
The current tax laws allow very favorable depreciation on modular
components not permanently affixed . These products qualify for a 7-year
depreciation period while conventional construction is depreciated over 39
years. Conventional construction, by its nature, becomes a permanent
structural addition to a building, and thus it is classified as “real
property” with the longer 39-year depreciable life.
A high degree of modular construction components, originating
from recycled materials, are highly recyclable, have higher energy
efficiency, increase building lifespans, contribute to improved air quality,
less emissions, less waste, and eco-friendly construction methods.
Higher Quality Controls and Assurance:
Modern modular component manufactures employ lasers and
computer controlled measuring devices to maintain high quality control of
assembly tolerances while finish thickness and textures are applied more
evenly than can be replicated with on site construction practices. This
results in value added benefits from higher impact resistance and lower
overall maintenance cost in the future.
Built to Code with Quality Materials:
Many modular components are inspected at the factory by local
state inspectors to qualify for state insignias. Not only does this assure
code compliant construction but adds an inspection level to the final
quality assurance of the project. Minor components without factory
inspections are certified by third part testing laboratories such as
Underwriters Laboratories(UL) or Factory Mutual(FM).
