Why Modular is Green

Request More Info

Modular construction is an environmentally-conscious choice for the construction industry.  Modular construction is inherently more sustainable than traditional site-built construction due to:

  • Minimal waste due to precise material accounting, measurement, and recycling       
  • Reduced environmental pollutants from transportation and construction materials          
  • Shorter build time 
  • Use of certain materials and components that are Energy-Star, Green Seal, FSC-certified along with other appropriate sources. 
  • Buildings  almost completely reusable and designed for that purpose, if desired.
  • Minimal site disruption
