Under Budget

65% of A/E/C professionals using Modular Construction report that project budgets are decreased. 41% report that project budgets are decreased by 6% or more. 1

Reduce Project Schedule

66% of A/E/C professionals using Modular Construction report that project schedules are decreased. 35% report that project schedules are decreased by 4 weeks or more. 1

The Benefits of Faster Construction Completion

How does faster construction completion affect the bottom line? Let’s look at how the difference in completion times affects a 40,000 square foot $7.7 million dollar office space project. If we use conventional construction as a baseline, we can see how using modular construction to complete the project 25% or 50% percent faster will reduce construction interest costs and increase the rental income opportunity significantly.


If Project Is Completed 25% Faster

By reducing the project schedule by 25% the project will save $5,214 in construction interest and can earn $293,333 extra rental income.


If Project Is Completed 50% Faster

By reducing the project schedule by 50% the project will save $78,147 in construction interest and can earn $440,000 extra rental income.

The Modular Building Construction Process in Three Easy Steps


palomar modular buildings manufacturing fabrication


Palomar’s manufacturing facility benefits from years of continuous process improvement and work flow assembly planning. The controlled production environment and material staging system produces a high level of fabrication precision and reduces construction waste.

palomar modular buildings transportation


The fabricated modules are shipped by carriers that specialize in modular building transportation. For large projects, like a man camp, that consist of dozens of modules the delivery is staged in phases so the modules can be prepared and installed in a logical sequence.

A general contractor, often one specializing in modular construction, will install the modules. Finish out can include electrical and mechanical system connection between modules, stairs, wheelchair ramps, skirting, exterior siding, trim and utility connections.
