Modular buildings are prefabricated buildings, or “prefabs”. They are sectional prefabricated buildings or houses that are made up of different sections, or “modules”, and the term “modular” is actually a method of construction.
Modular buildings and homes have a wide range of purposes and can be used temporarily or permanently. They have been used as construction camps, civilian housing, military housing, churches, health care facilities, fast food restaurants, and for educational purposes such as classrooms and schools.
Modular buildings are seen as very cost-effective. There’s plenty of reasons why the prices of such buildings are so low, including the speed of construction, method of indoor construction, low waste, environmentally friendly construction processes and benefits, and more.
Here in the northeastern United States, modules are limited to 16′ width and up to 70′ lengths due to narrower road structure and a dense population in this part of the country. New York City is also an ideal spot to set up a modular building, due to the adaptable nature of these buildings against weather and climate change.
