Modular building construction continues to be a front-runner in the field of green building practices and sustainability through off-site operations.
Our off-site manufacturing practice results in efficient and responsible inventory control, material reuse, and automation of tasks. Modular building sustainability is one of the reasons that modular construction continues to rise in both popularity and desirability.
Advantages of Green & Sustainable Modular Construction
BOXX Modular offers the modular advantage of minimizing waste, maximizing material usage, and promoting adaptability and reuse. Here are a few ways we’re using green building practices to make sustainability a priority.
Modular buildings can be constructed to meet the highest LEED certification standards. LEED buildings use less energy, water, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As an added bonus, they save money.
Less Material Waste
Pre-fabrication makes it possible to optimize material purchases and usage, while minimizing on-site waste, all while offering a higher quality product to the buyer.
Less Site Disturbance
The modular structure is constructed off-site while the foundation and other on-site work is being completed. This efficient process reduces the impact on the surrounding environment, as well as reduces the number of vehicles and equipment needed at the site.
When your needs change, modular buildings can be disassembled and the modules relocated or refreshed for their next use, reducing the demand for additional raw materials, and minimizing the amount of energy expended to create a new building to meet the new need.
Less Material Exposure to Water
A modular structure is up to 90% completed in a factory-controlled setting using dry materials, so the potential for high levels of moisture being trapped in the new construction is all but eliminated.
A large selection of high efficiency mechanical systems, insulation, windows, doors, and plumbing fixtures can be installed to meet your desired efficiency standards.
Modular buildings can be designed to quickly add or remove one or more modules, minimizing costs, and disruptions to adjacent building and surroundings.
