Modular and Prefab Construction
Not so long ago, the notion of modular or prefab buildings was synonymous with doublewide trailers and poor aesthetics. But today, modular buildings – homes, schools, and commercial buildings – are making a green comeback, gracing the covers of sleek design magazines and attracting a younger demographic that is passionate about lowering its environmental footprint.
This new breed of modular/prefab buildings comes with a green pedigree: sustainable, energy-efficient, and affordable.
In addition to designed-in efficiencies, fabricating a structure’s components in a centralized location, rather than trucking all of the necessary materials and labor to the building site, greatly reduces the carbon footprint of a building vs. a site-built project.
