If you’re in the construction development business, then you know that all builds aren’t the same. Every developer or construction company uses the same thing as a measure of success: that bottom line ROI of both money and time invested into the project.
Time is money. It’s true in just about every line of business out there. It’s absolutely the case in construction. For each day you have people on the job, that’s an additional day’s worth of materials, salary, not to mention the overhead costs of the project that are incurred.
The process of saving time and money begins well before ground is broken or the first supplies are ordered. It happens in the project planning phase – when you sit down and make a firm decision on which method of construction you’re going to pursue.
There are two definitive approaches to construction: Modular Construction and Traditional Construction. While to an outsider, each of these methods is nearly identical, a professional knows that it’s the seemingly small differences that can make a huge impact on your construction project.
So, what’s it going to be? Will you go for a Modular Construction approach, where the individual structural components are designed offsite in a factory? Or will you take a Traditional Construction approach where just about all of the structural elements are constructed and assembled on site? It’s not just about where the structural components of your project are assembled – it’s about the time, money, and quality of the building project.
This infographic puts together a simple 3 step guide to Modular and Traditional Construction that will walk you through a sample build project. Find out what the small, yet potentially game-changing differences are between the two strategies, how the differences will affect your project timeline, and most importantly, determine which method is going to be right for you.
