Building structures, whether they’re houses or commercial building or an entire development, takes a lot of effort — and time.
One single building project can involve designers, engineers, architects, and subcontractors spending hundreds of hours drafting the plans and executing the build. And while this type of collaboration has the potential to take a project to the next level, it can also be problematic without proper coordination.

How does this building method become a serious player in the world of global construction?
After years of writing about modular construction, I’m happy to report that this innovative building method is finally making its mark on the global construction industry. But even as modular becomes more accepted in some markets, its popularity still varies widely from region to region.
With permanent modular construction (or PMC), you build with modules, so you spend 90% of the pre-construction time in the design and submittal phase. Of the remaining 10%, up to 95% can be completed in a factory-controlled setting. This makes the actual time on the job site extremely brief compared to traditional builds, but there are 5 crucial steps that need to be taken to make the construction process a success.
