Modular Construction on Large Industrial, Commercial and Multi-Family Projects: This Ain't Your Father's Stick-Built Job

Modular Construction on Large Industrial, Commercial and Multi-Family Projects: This Ain't Your Father's Stick-Built Job

Understand the practical, commercial, and legal issues unique to modular construction. Some say modular construction—where key sections of large industrial, commercial and multi-family projects are built remotely and transported to the site for erection and assembly--is the wave of the future. They insist that modular construction is the key to increased labor productivity, lower labor cost, shorter schedules, improved quality, fewer weather impacts, tax benefits, lower financing costs and greater environmental sustainability, to name a few. What could possibly go wrong? Plenty. Engineering, scheduling, coordination and skill requirements for a successful modular construction project are often different than those for a stick-built job. Legal, regulatory and insurance requirements are different. Modular construction can bring substantial profits to the prepared and significant punishment for the unwary. Learn the practical, commercial and legal issues unique to modular construction on large industrial, commercial and multi-family projects. Learn how traditional construction is the same, how it differs from modular construction, and what you should be planning to do to make your large modular project a success.
