Permanent modular construction and temporary modular construction both offer high quality structures, with unmatched speed and cost savings.
While temporary modular buildings meet your short-term needs, permanent modular buildings can be developed for longer-term requirements. Both modular designs are made of the highest-quality materials and are designed with environmentally responsible practices in mind.
Comparing Permanent vs Temporary Modular Buildings
Here are a few brief questions to ask yourself as you contemplate whether permanent vs temporary modular building is the best solution for your construction space need. It is important to note that the relocatable nature of a building, making it “temporary,” has a lot more to do with the permanence of the foundation and how the building is affixed to it than the design of the actual building structure itself.
Permanent modular buildings are installed on and fastened to a foundation with the intention of lasting well into the future.
Time of Occupancy
Permanent modular construction may require 4 months or more from contract depending on the scope of work.
Permanent modular construction is installed for long-term use (decades), the same as any conventional building.
The permanent modular construction process utilizes concrete and steel or wood for framing the structure.
Temporary modular buildings are built for durability. If maintained properly they will have a life similar to that of a conventional structure.
Time of Occupancy
Temporary modular buildings can be on site and ready for occupancy in as little as 30 days from contract.
Temporary modular buildings are often used for a shorter duration (a few years) because of their relocatable nature.
Construction plans for temporary modular building use predominantly wood-based materials.
