Modular Building Planning - Site Selection, Delivery and Installation

Modular building site planning and installation
Select the best site location for your modular building.
Modular building is amazingly fast when compared to conventional construction but there are some location based "hurdles" that need to be considered in the early stages of your facility planning to avoid costly delays.

Modular buildings are manufactured in sections and delivered to your site by experienced transporters using specialized trucks. The modular sections are then offloaded either by unhitching or by using a large forklift or crane. This process requires plenty of space for the trucks, heavy equipment and manpower to jockey each "module" into place and onto the foundation before interconnection and close up take place. The installation process moves quickly and can be very smooth barring weather delays so watch your local forecast and try to plan accordingly.

Here are the Top 3 Tips for modular building site planning:

How long does modular construction take?

One of the most common questions we get in the modular building industry is about the time it takes to deliver and install a used modular building or portable classroom. Understandably so - when most people looking for temporary space usually need it in a hurry.

Depending upon the size and scope of work and assuming that a supplier has the floor plan available for sale or rent, modular building construction can take one day, one week, one month or longer. For example, a standard 24' x 60' modular classroom can be delivered and installed in one day if the resources are available and the site is ready and close to the supplier. A much larger 60' x 60' prefab structure consists of more pieces (or "sections" as we call them in the business) - this amounts to more transportation time, more labor and more materials for close up. All of which can command a week long installation schedule.

Using a modular building is far quicker and more convenient than finding real estate or building more space on your property...just keep the following items in mind if you choose a prefab:

1. Be sure you have permits first.Visit your local building and safety department for details.
2. More space requires more time for the supplier to prepare, deliver and install.
3. Weather can delay installation for hours or days.
4. A level site with easy access is ideal for quick installation.
5. Utilities need to be ready for connection by licensed contractors.
6. Setting up a handicap ramp and stairs for access will require additional labor and time on site.
7. The set up contractor will need to close up the building at the roof, end walls and floor. This involves connecting electrical, mechanical ducting, hanging ceiling tiles, seeming carpet and wall finish materials and clean up.
8. Furnishings - always add time to the schedule for furniture delivery and set up. This is often overlooked.
