Frequently Asked Questions

Modular construction is a form of construction where portions of a building are built off-site, preassembled in sections called "modules" and installed at the jobsite.  This process is often called "prefabrication" or "prefab construction."  Modules are completely finished, painted, carpeted and wired before delivery, greatly reducing on-site labor.

Modular construction has many advantages over stick-built construction: higher quality, faster delivery, greater consistency, and lower overall costs.  Because the units are built first and then assembled on site, it allows the developer greater flexibility further into project completion.  It also greatly reduces project risks associated with schedules, subcontractors, weather, delivery, and inspection.

While savings will vary depending on the specifics of the project, modular is typically less expensive than site-built construction.  Producing modules in a factory environment and delivering them to a jobsite generally reduces project costs and completion time.  Project costs associated with subcontractors, scheduling, weather, staging, delivery, and inspection are also often reduced.

Modular construction is inherently greener and more efficient. Modules can be designed to LEED standards, and building in the factory reduces the amount of waste, carbon footprint, and impact on greenspaces at or around the jobsite.

Traditional Construction vs OneBuild

Modular construction is very flexible and can be customized to meet the specifications of almost any project, design, or architectural style.  With modular, you really can build it your way.

Efficiency

-  OneBuild’s state-of-the-art automated facility and superior engineering delivers higher efficiency and consistency throughout the building process.  More efficient use of materials and labor saves time and money.

-  Project risks associated with subcontractors, scheduling, weather, staging, delivery and inspection are all substantially reduced.  Building modules in a factory environment and delivering to a jobsite reduces project completion time and costs.

-  Modular construction is more efficient and inherently greener.  There is less waste in the factory environment and jobsites are cleaner and less disruptive to the site than traditional building.

Flexibility

-  Systems-Built modules can be tailored to meet the specifications of any project.
