With companies and construction firms becoming more familiar with the modular process, the hope is owners will not only increase their overall interest in modular construction but will prefer it to stick-built altogether.

ATHENS, Tenn. - Tennsun -- Unfortunately, the past year has put pressure on all industries, including the construction sector, with contractors trying to keep up with project timelines while protecting their workers at the job site. Looking to increase their overall efficiency and keep up with looming deadlines, many firms have turned to modular construction to help meet these needs.

Dodge's report surveyed construction architects and contractors from across the United States and found that the benefit most commonly associated with modular construction is "Improved Productivity," with 93% of respondents reporting medium to very high positive results. Additionally, measurable benefits were reported in overall quality, schedule certainty, cost predictability, waste reduction, client satisfaction, and safety performance.

According to the report, the main obstacle facing the modular construction industry is simply "owner interest," with ~50% of respondents citing it as a barrier. The market as a whole is risky and often unpredictable. It seems many firms have not been willing to adopt new modular techniques as they assume the new process would further add to these risks. However, Dodge notes, "Hopefully this will change as more owners become familiar with the modular process and comfortable with its results."

As stated in the report, with companies and construction firms becoming more familiar with the modular process, the hope is owners will not only increase their overall interest in modular construction but will prefer it to stick-built altogether.
