There are a number of reasons why modular buildings are up to 20% less costly than conventionally built structures. In this installment we will examine the second reason behind the cost savings associated with modular buildings: Reduced Weather Delays.
Weather delays are a constant concern for construction projects. So much so that many construction contracts demand that schedules include an allowance for adverse weather. Conventional construction projects typically have to plan for between 3-6 adverse weather days each month. Every day lost due to inclement weather has a quantifiable value. Costs include everything from equipment rentals to salaries and construction financing. Those costs keep accruing rain or shine until the project is completed.
With modular construction exposure to weather delays are minimized since principal construction takes place in Palomar’s climate controlled manufacturing facility. An additional benefit to our controlled manufacturing environment is that our building materials and construction are not exposed to rain or moisture, both of which cause significant problems in conventional construction.
