Real estate demands change over time and you need something that’s quick to construct, yet durable and contemporary to accommodate those changes. While offsite construction is ideal for temporary relocatable structures like site offices, modular or prefabricated structures are also a preferred solution for permanent structures--hotels, multi-unit housing, offices, classrooms, hockey arenas and fitness centres--that offer definite advantages over stick-built construction.
Because part of the structure is done in the controlled environment of the factory, there’s less waste associated with damaged materials, inventory is easily accounted for, and there’s less disturbance to the actual site and its surroundings--all of which makes your structure LEED certifiable.
With various components done simultaneously and sheltered from potentially extreme weather, construction can be completed 30 to 50 per cent faster than traditional construction.
From the standard of materials and quality assurance processes to flexibility in design, permanent modular construction provides a better built structure that can fit in with the look and feel of its surroundings.
Because there’s less work done on-site, and time on site can be reduced by as much as half, fewer construction permits are required.
When you need to build housing for a large group of people, quickly and affordably, offsite permanent construction like our facilities built for the 2007 Canada Winter Games can be built in a fraction of the time, while meeting strict requirements and designed to be incorporated into its surroundings. The life of these buildings can be extended beyond their intended uses into other affordable housing options like student and senior housing.
Our pre-engineered and soft-walled structures can be built into permanent state-of-the-art gymnasiums with running tracks, squash courts, basketball courts and more.
