Fulcrum: Providing Modular Risk Management Services

Top 10 Modular Construction Consulting/Services Companies - 2019

Offsite construction, also known as modular construction is not a new concept, but it is one that has seen resurgence in recent years. This new-found popularity is attributable to rising affordable housing needs and demand for sustainable building. Offsite construction alleviates the many problems associated with traditional ‘onsite’ methods. By moving a large proportion of the work from a messy, exposed open-air setting with limited working hours into a safe, controlled indoor factory setting with 24/7 production uptime potential, modular construction offers several benefits in the form of shorter building time, lower costs, and improved working environment.

However, there still are a few contractors and construction firms that are hesitant to adopt this new approach. It is mainly due to a degree of apprehension and the perceived risks of using unfamiliar methods of building. In such scenarios, hiring consulting firms to offer a confluence of planning, design, and construction services ensures the quality as well as the structural integrity of a building. For instance, a significant issue associated with traditional construction includes the need for homeowners to coordinate with design technologists and construction contractors consistently. Opting for a third-party allows owners to lay back and maintain contact with a single source. The consulting companies can help contractors and builders tailor a plan for their specific modular project needs; from establishing scope and viability through budget and schedule along with requirements of process implementation and ongoing evaluation. From concept to closeout, these people help develop a plan one a can effectively build on.

In light of this, Construction Tech Review has compiled a list of top 10 modular construction consulting/services companies to guide contractors and builders in harnessing the power of modular construction technologies to tackle today’s building challenges, reduce workload, and increase efficiencies, while simultaneously ensuring the safety of their people.

Through our cover story, featuring Arizona-based Fulcrum, we bring to you a modular construction risk management service provider that educates its clients—building owners, construction lenders, contractors, and equity investors—on the benefits of modular construction. If and when a project receives the green light, Fulcrum handholds clients throughout the process of modular construction, which includes preliminary advisory services, recruitment of workers, collaboration with manufacturers, and everything else in between.
