In the last post, we discussed some of the main advantages of finished portable buildings used for medical facilities and purposes. However, modular construction decreases design and construction time by up to 50%. It also requires fewer change orders, earlier occupancy and improved cash flow. Understanding the full range of benefits is the key to making the best decisions for your medical facility. Here’s part two of our guide that will explore some more major benefits of modular medical buildings.
Benefits of Modular Medical Buildings:
Customizable For Ease of Use
We briefly touched on versatile functionality in the last post, but it’s important to understand the true level. New modular technology allows you to select your own finish from a wide range of options. Not only that, but many companies are prioritizing further ease of use. In fact, they are offering wall and floor coverings that are both durable and easy to clean. All of these components give you virtually countless options. You can choose floor plans, aesthetic designs, and overall functionality for your next project.
More Affordable Than Traditional Medical Facility Construction
It’s no secret that traditional construction costs can get expensive, especially for commercial and industrial buildings. Modular construction, however, is much more affordable for a variety of budgets. Your construction company will certainly be able to provide a quote before construction begins. However, keep in mind that other costs. For example, the inclusion of electrical, plumbing, and duct work are often in the initial pricing, so your final cost may be 20% more than the builder’s quote. Above all, you’re getting the same results at a fraction of the cost of traditional construction.
Quick And Easy Construction, Delivery, and Installation
Finally, modular construction is great for being a faster process than traditional construction. Which is especially important to consider in a medical context. The medical industry is undergoing constant and consistent growth, and patient overflow can make it hard to keep operations moving efficiently. Delivery times will vary depending on the needs of the project, but a modular building can complete in as quickly as 12 weeks. You can invest in a structure that can be built, delivered, and installed in such a short period of time can help any medical facility handle congestion appropriately.
Ultimately, understanding these benefits is the key to determining whether or not a modular medical building may be right for your needs. Contact ABS to start your next project!
