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 first reason behind the cost savings associated with modular buildings: Construction Financing.
Modular buildings allow for a shorter construction financing period. A shorter construction duration reduces the amount of interest paid in construction financing.
For example, if we look at financing a $1,000,000 construction project at 7% interest for 18 months for stick built construction the total financed amount will be $1,056,329.82. If we cut the financing period by 50% with quicker modular construction, the same $1,000,000 project financed over 9 months at 7% will have a total financed amount of $1,029,392.91. In this example, using modular construction to complete the project 50% faster saves $26,936.94 in construction financing costs.
