  • Better Quality
    • Controlled fabrication environment allows for better quality work than is typically performed at an outdoor and remote jobsite
  • Cost
    • Shop modular systems can be as much as 50% less expensive than site-assembled components
    • Supply of modular building assembly eliminates time at the site to construct and erect a new building
