Architectural, Engineering and Factory Support

Planning is the backbone of any construction project.  Modular Building Associates incorporates proper project planning with complete customer need evaluation to establish your project objectives so we can ensure you are 100% satisfied.  We collaborate with a variety of other industry professionals such as factory experts, architects, engineers and primary subcontractors to develop a facility that is functional and aesthetically attractive.  An architect is a professional who incorporates aesthetics, structural integrity, functionality, utility and technologies into an overall plan. 

What if the architect does not have modular construction experience?  That is a very serious problem.  Modular construction is a specialized product.   Although the basic materials used in modular construction are almost identical to site-construction, the techniques used to produce and install a modular building are unlike anything most architects were taught in school.  Understanding the principles of modular construction takes years of industry experience. You are jeopardizing the very project objectives you are trying to achieve if you allow an architect to attempt to design a modular project without first mastering the art of modular manufacturing. 

A modular construction specialist can bridge that gap for an architect and provide the knowledge, experience and skills required to complete the design task.  People utilize modular buildings to achieve specific objectives.  You need construction experience and industry knowledge to establish the specifications, scope of work and installation criteria required to meet those specific project objectives.
