The construction industry represents the building blocks of a community. Without the industry, there would not be any schools, hospitals, homes, workplace, factories, or even shops; all of which represent the fundamental foundations of a healthy economy. Today, this sector is in the midst of a fascinating transition, with contractors transforming their operations to integrate new technologies, trends, and opportunities. Among the several new trends, one that has taken the construction industry by storm is modular construction or off-site construction, which deals with shifting the many aspects of building activity away from traditional onsite projects to offsite manufacturing-style production.
Given its many benefits such as shorter build time, reduced labor costs, and limited site disruption along with less waste and pollution, modular construction is attracting a fresh wave of interest and investment. More and more participants across the construction value chain are increasingly pushing the space forward. There are a growing number of construction companies turning to modular construction to get the job done. In fact, according to a recent survey by Future Market Insights on prefab and modular construction, 35 percent of contractors in the U.S. are implementing modular construction in the design phase of the building process.
Understanding the changing times, Construction Tech Review has compiled a list of top 10 modular construction solution providers to guide construction companies and contractors 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.
