For All of Modular Construction’s Appeal, Beware of Risks and Insurance Complications

Kirk Chamberlain - Construction Executive

There are good reasons modular and prefabricated construction has been undergoing a low-velocity explosion for the last decade.

Quality is boosted when components from plumbing to wall panels to entire rooms are assembled in a controlled environment versus onsite. Safety is improved as controlled conditions cut down on slips, falls and other risks on a jobsite exposed to the elements. Productivity gains of 30% to 50% are a factor too, given the greater output possible for the same man hour as traditional construction. And modular construction delivers on sustainability as there is less materials waste.
