Quick Overview

According to the survey, only 40% of all contractors responding consider their capabilities in prefabrication and modular construction as a part of their company’s strategic initiative.

Details

Of those surveyed, 81 percent say they own their own prefabrication facilities. This figure is down from 90 percent in 2010. This could be due to hesitations about the method that include:

  • Selecting the right types of projects for modular construction
  • State rules about large assemblies to be transported on roads
  • Locating modular assembly areas close to the construction site
  • Convincing people that prefabrication and modularized units can produce superior quality and not look like temporary housing units
  • Assuring that the work produced meets and codes
  • Proving that it works and saves money
  • Reducing changes after the work is designed and built
