Modular construction is a method of building whereby facilities are built to spec in a factory and then assembled in sections like building blocks, using the same materials and adhering to the same local and state building codes as traditional construction. Modules are shipped to the site approximately 80% complete and assembled on the prepared foundation, with most utilities already in place. Your final product is a building that is indistinguishable from site-built facilities, without the nuisance, longer time frame and extra costs of conventional construction. Modular construction methods embrace the high-tech solutions of our future.
Modular buildings can be single or multistory and include all levels of design. Modular construction can incorporate sophisticated design elements and high-end features or more basic choices and standard layouts. Interior and exterior finishes can be chosen to coordinate with existing facilities or the surrounding environment. Does your technology need advanced shielding? We can adapt your RAD Vault to accommodate technology changes.
Modular construction can be completed up to 50% faster or more than traditional build. Earlier occupancy leads to accelerated patient treatment capability and accelerated revenue capture. Modules are constructed in the factory at the same time the foundation and utilities are installed on site. Because most of the construction occurs in the factory, there are minimal weather delays and additional time savings. Need a new emergency rooms? Need to add sterilization space? Need more clinical, ancillary or vault space? We can expand your facility fast.
Factory construction generates less waste and reduces time on site. That means less overall site disturbance. When modules are constructed in a controlled factory environment, waste is minimized by recycling and protecting materials. Factory construction generates less vehicle emissions than workers and equipment traveling to and from your project site. This is not only great for the environment, but reduced site activity is a benefit to cancer centers and hospitals desiring avoidance of the distractions, traffic inconvenience and hazards of lengthy onsite construction. Modular buildings can also be relocated and reused. This reduces the demand for raw materials and energy needed to create a new facility.
Modular buildings are generally stronger than traditionally constructed facilities. Each module is built and engineered to withstand the rigors of transportation. In addition, factories have strict quality control programs that include testing and inspection requirements throughout the construction process. When your modules arrive at your site, they’ve already been approved by local and state authorities or are ready for on-site inspection, depending on your local jurisdiction.
