Disaster Recovery Buildings

When disaster strikes, you need several kinds of quick response buildings to meet your needs in the shortest time possible, whether it’s temporary housing to shelter those affected, clinics for medical personnel to work out of, or any of the other needs first responders have. Palomar, as a modular builder, are experts at manufacturing a quality building fast and getting it to its destination quickly.

Palomar’s manufacturing capabilities make it possible to complete 90% of the building in the factory, greatly reducing the time-to-completion factor, which is of critical concern to responding professionals.  This speed gives emergency response facilities a greater return on investment because services can begin much sooner than they would in traditional site-built projects. With reduced on-site construction activity, there is less site disruption, less noise, less construction waste, and less weather-related downtime.

Modular construction is a great choice for such projects as:

  • Medical Clinics
  • Schools and Libraries
  • Mobile Command Centers
  • Emergency Response Facilities
  • Security Centers
  • FEMA Housing
  • Temporary Housing
  • Emergency Shelters

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 your bottom line? Let’s look at how the difference in completion times affects a 40,000 square foot $7.7 million dollar apartment development. 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.

Earned Additional 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’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.


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.
