The world at large is becoming more aware each and every day about modular and prefab construction and its incredible benefits. In the past, modular may have been viewed has something subpar to regular/traditional construction, and drew associations with things like trailer-like classrooms on school campuses.
But, anyone who knows anything about building these days knows that modular can not only meet the same standards of traditional build methods, but it can exceed it in many ways. This includes budget, construction timeline and flexibility in terms of being able to work under any sort of weather. Building modular also enables particular organizations and companies to maximize their productivity.
For example, modular hospital buildings and modular medical buildings—this is a place where modular not only creates high-quality facilities, but, also allows a place like a hospital to continue to stay open and keep its patients happy and undisturbed while an expansion is being built elsewhere at an offsite modular construction firm.
Here is an example of a hospital in Longmont, Colorado that made great use of modular building for the timeline of a new hospital that needed to get up quickly to meet its patients’ needs:
“The entire hospital structure is being built to LEED standards with the use of sustainable building materials, and prefab construction was employed for the project, according to Robinson. “The use of prefab construction was an effort on our part to increase the timeline of the hospital construction, and also to be environmentally responsible,” Robinson said.
The hospital will have an intensive care unit, a level III trauma center and emergency department, and advanced cardiac services. It will have a birthing center with a level II special care nursery, and a heliport for emergency transfers to other acute-care hospitals.”
As you can tell from the brief article excerpt, this is a state-of-the-art hospital and was built through prefab construction. The timeline of this hospital’s construction was in just one year’s time, which, until recently, and pre-dating modular construction, would have been unheard of.
Thanks to modular construction, hospitals are built in a year and the health needs of the surrounding community are met with incredible new facilities.
