Student Housing Buildings

Palomar Modular Buildings manufactures prefabricated modular buildings designed specifically for on campus and off campus student housing buildings, including colleges and universities, boarding schools, and military schools. Using modular technology, it is possible to achieve lower costs and a faster completion time. Our student housing construction technology allows us to build multiple unit student housing buildings with parking, atrium and open space environments and well-appointed living areas efficiently.

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.

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 transportation
palomar modular buildings installation construction


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.
