Modular dormitories are growing in popularity among colleges and universities seeking to keep up with growing demand for on-campus housing while eliminating the delays associated with traditional construction.
Modular off-site construction maximizes efficiencies, saving time and money, since key building components are created simultaneously to those on-site, with less waste and cheaper labor via a factory assembly line.
The two primary modular building materials utilized in the structural frames of most units are wood and steel, the latter possessing the advantages of superior strength, safety, durability and sustainability.
Prefabrication is a broad category of construction, which seeks to maximize efficiencies in construction by moving portions of the process off-site. Modularization is the most efficient class of prefabrication, manufacturing entire building units inside a facility.
While productivity has been on the rise in virtually all industries, it continues to fall in construction. This loss of productivity is due largely to a shrinking workforce and an acceptance of waste – two issues mitigated by the Deluxe modular process.
Master Builders of the past managed every step of the pre-construction and construction processes to create beautiful and lasting building projects. Deluxe Modular has taken inspiration from this forgotten tradition to create our streamlined, modular process.
