The Rise of the Prefabricated Building

The Rise of the Prefabricated Building Bisnow (08/01/17) Bunch, Julia

Modular construction continues to grow in popularity as more companies realize the benefits. The growing interest is also likely due to lingering effects of the Great Recession and a lack of skilled laborers that never returned to the construction industry. The construction technique is best used commercial retail, institutional buildings, data centers and hotels. While modular construction can result in quicker building times, the downside is that flexibility to change building design plans is lost when using prefabricated building pieces.
