A relocatable building (RB) is a partially or fully erected structure that complies with applicable codes or state standards and is built utilizing a modular construction procedure in a building manufacturing facility.
Fremont, CA : Modular construction is a method of constructing a structure off-site, under controlled plant settings, using the same materials and following the same codes and standards as conventionally constructed facilities, but in half the time. Buildings are made up of “modules” that, when assembled on-site, mirror the same architectural intent and standards as the most sophisticated site-built facility without sacrificing quality. Its benefits include:
Greener: The factory-controlled method creates less waste, causes fewer disruptions on the job site, and allows for more precise construction.
Faster: Modular buildings are built concurrently with site operations, enabling projects to be completed in half the time it takes for traditional construction.
Smarter: Modular structures are constructed using the same materials as traditional structures and adhere to the same building rules and design specifications. They are essentially indistinguishable from their site-built equivalents once assembled.
Two types of modular construction are:
Permanent Modular Construction (PMC)
PMC is an innovative, sustainable construction delivery system that prefabricates single or multi-story entire building solutions in deliverable module portions using off-site, lean manufacturing processes. Compared to projects using just site-built construction, PMC modules can be integrated into site-built projects or stand alone as a turn-key solution. It can also be delivered with MEP, fixtures, and interior finishes in less time with less waste and superior quality control.
A relocatable building (RB) is a partially or fully erected structure that complies with applicable codes or state standards and is built utilizing a modular construction procedure in a building manufacturing facility. Buildings that are relocatable are designed to be reused or repurposed several times and transferred to new construction locations. They’re used for schools, construction site offices, medical clinics, sales centers, and any other application where a movable structure may suit a temporary space requirement. Fast delivery, ease of mobility, low-cost reconfiguration, expedited depreciation schedules, and immense flexibility are all features of these buildings. Relocatable structures are not permanently affixed to natural land; instead, they are installed following the manufacturer’s installation specifications and local code requirements. These structures are vital when speed, temporary space, and the capacity to relocate are required.
