SMART OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION

MODLOGIQ’s SMART OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION is the next logical step in the evolution of off-site modular construction. Our unique methodology offers you huge advantages over both conventional site-built construction as well as other methods of modular construction:

  • Cost Certainty. SMART OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION prevents the cost overruns typical of conventional construction (8 out of 10 construction projects exceed budget by an average of 25%). We avoid costly labor shortages, weather delays, and material spoilage by building under controlled conditions. And our BIM and "Build Together" approach ensures precise fit and finish, eliminating expensive installation delays and on-site remediation you risk with other modular building methods.

  • Schedule Acceleration. Off-site construction takes place at the same time as site preparation. When the foundation is ready, the modules--up to 90% complete--install in just days. The result? Up to 50% shorter schedules, faster openings, and reduced capital exposure/risk.

  • Least Site Impact. Hundreds of fewer site visits for material deliveries, vendors, contractors, and subcontractors. Dramatically smaller laydown yard and impact area. And our buildings install in days to minimize disruption to neighborhoods, campuses, communities, hospital grounds, school yards, etc.

  • BIM (Building Information Modeling). We begin with the most accurate conception of 3D space to ensure precise tolerances, automate clash detection, and avoid issues when they're most costly--after construction begins.

  • "Build Together." We assemble all the modules at our factory into their final configuration. Then licensed contractors insulate, frame, install MEP and fire suppression systems, hang drywall, lay flooring, install plumbing, lighting, fixtures, furnishings and more up--to 90% completion. This ensures everything fits together at the site because it fits together at the plant . 

  • Collaboration. No one has more experience than MODLOGIQ when it comes to collaborating with owners, developers, architects, construction managers, general contractors, and facilities manager on world-class designs and stunning modular successes.  

  • Higher quality. Our world-class supply chain, exclusive manufacturing process, and one-of-a-kind delivery model ensure your project includes the best features and latest innovations.

  • Secure, reliable transportation. No cheap mobile trailer frames that increase the risk of shipping damage. Our buildings are transported on drop-deck/low boy air ride trailers and are heavy-duty shrink wrapped to deliver safely and securely.

All these SMART OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION advantages are on top of the
dramatic benefits that conventional modular construction already delivers:

  • Faster. Up to 50% faster than conventional construction, so you know the precise date your doors will open. Also, weather delays are virtually eliminated because up to 90% of the construction work is completed inside our manufacturing facility under dry, controlled conditions. In addition, an in-place labor force and established materials supply chain avoid scheduling disruptions that can cause delays. 

  • Greener. Off-site construction allows significantly higher levels of recycling, minimizing landfill impact. Further, materials are protected from weather, so there’s less spoilage and waste…and better quality. Also, with operations taking place at a centralized facility, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced. Workers don’t have to drive as far and materials are shipped more efficiently (for example, by rail instead of by truck). Finally, modular construction makes it easier to build more energy efficient structures, bringing a higher degree of sustainability to the entire life cycle of the building (not just the build). 

  • Smarter. Modular construction technology like Building Information Modeling (BIM) lends itself to greater efficiency, better planning, tighter integration, and easier collaboration. And because modular buildings use built with to the same building codes and architectural specifications as traditional construction and use the same materials, they are virtually indistinguishable from site-built equivalents. Most importantly, the controlled conditions at an off-site manufacturing facility provide a safer work environment and make accidents much less likely.  

  • Stronger. In general, modular buildings are structurally stronger than site-built construction. Why? Because each module is designed, engineered, and built to handle the rigors of transportation and installation. Modules become a single integrated wall, floor, and roof structure once assembly is completed. 

  • Safer. This benefit is especially important when it comes to additions, remodels or expansions of existing facilities that must remain open and operational. With up to 90% of the actual work taking place off-site, construction hazards, traffic, noise, dust, and disruptions are dramatically reduced. At the same time, safety and security at the site are much better.
