Value Added Benefits of Modular Construction:
Value Added Assessment of Modular Construction Methods

  Quality Engineered Structures delivers higher value added goods and services through the utilization of modular construction components and methods. The typical construction plan offers many unseen activities and end results that can be improved upon with modular construction systems and techniques. Contractor selection based solely on pricing with typical conventional construction methods will typically mitigate many net value added services provide by modular construction methods.


Greater Modular Experience:
   With over 25 years experience in modular construction from assembled modular buildings and subassemblies of modular components Quality Engineered Structures counts on additional labor savings through not migrating through a learning curve on the products we offer. Whether healthcare, commercial or residential we have the design experience to value engineer your construction plans utilizing modular construction methods or design from the start with modular construction methods.

Primary Design and Engineering to Modular Methods:

   Whether an assembled building or panelized modular construction system value added benefits can be derived from designing and engineering all assembles of components with modularization as the primary design principle. This will result in lower initial cost and cost on future renovations, relocation or upgrades. Exteriors, interiors, and all utilities can be designed and engineered with modularization and prefabrication as the primary design.

Lower Insurance Cost and Risk Management:
   Modular construction attains higher quality results with less on site labor. Less labor results in fewer subcontractors and lower possibilities of insurance claims from workman's compensation injury, damage to surrounding areas, or risk of subcontractor performance. This results in lower cost liability and workman's compensation premiums passed on to the project. Modular construction methods reduce onsite labor by approximately 40% in most of our applications.

Improved Construction Productivity and Efficiency:
   Greater use of modularization, preassembly, and off site fabrication techniques has repeatedly shown to increase job site productivity and efficiency by great percentages throughout the capital facilities sectors. Utilizing modular construction methods in healthcare, commercial and residential construction projects also vastly improves, quality, timeliness, cost effectiveness and sustainability.

Tax Advantages of Modular Construction:

    The current tax laws allow very favorable depreciation on modular components not permanently affixed . These products qualify for a 7-year depreciation period while conventional construction is depreciated over 39 years. Conventional construction, by its nature, becomes a permanent structural addition to a building, and thus it is classified as “real property” with the longer 39-year depreciable life.

Greater Sustainability: 

  A high degree of modular construction components, originating from recycled materials, are highly recyclable, have higher energy efficiency, increase building lifespans, contribute to improved air quality, less emissions, less waste, and eco-friendly construction methods.

Higher Quality Controls and Assurance: 

  Modern modular component manufactures employ lasers and computer controlled measuring devices to maintain high quality control of assembly tolerances while finish thickness and textures are applied more evenly than can be replicated with on site construction practices. This results in value added benefits from higher impact resistance and lower overall  maintenance cost in the future.

Built to Code with Quality Materials:

  Many modular components are inspected at the factory by local state inspectors to qualify for state insignias. Not only does this assure code compliant construction but adds an inspection level to the final quality assurance of the project. Minor components without factory inspections are certified by third part testing laboratories such as Underwriters Laboratories(UL) or Factory Mutual(FM).
