Smart, Green Home Trends in 2016

1. Open Concept The most popular home layout for 2016 will be the open concept floor plan which allows the kitchen and living areas to blend together into one space. New home buyers like this layout because it is perfect for entertaining guests and for family togetherness. 2.

Facts About Hybrid Modular Construction

Have you heard about Hybrid Modular Construction? Hybrid Modular is the combination of two types of construction, modular and site construction. Contractors can each concentrate on what they do best, with a little coordination. Rather than each type of builder taking on a whole project, they can divide and conquer, splitting the project into smaller, easier portions to control. Both types of construction can take place simultaneously, saving time and money on a project. Factory environments used for modular construction also provides a more efficient, sustainable building solution, creating a healthier and safer environment. Hybrid specializes in using accelerated building methods to construct buildings. Architects, engineers, developers and construction managers appreciate the expertise Hybrid offers them when teaming up to design and build a modular building. Hybrid Modular Construction has been used to design and install modular buildings all over the world that have been used for healthcare buildings, dormitories, assisted living centers, schools, multi-family dwellings and many other applications needed by its clients when time is of the...

Building Trend Moves Towards Modular Construction

Building Trend Moves Towards Modular Construction

The Modular Construction Trend continues to increase in popularity for many construction professionals. It involves building important sections of a structure off-site, usually in a factory-style setting, then assembling those pre-made “modules” on site to create a fully functional structure. There are several benefits of modular construction for both client and contractor, including: Increased availability: Construction companies are increasingly turning to the modular construction trend for some part of their projects. Some 35 percent of construction companies are incorporating prefabrication into building design, according to information from the management construction firm FMI, cited by reporter Adam Groff on the Construction Global website. FMI also noted 40 percent of firms are using prefabrication and expected to use it more in the future.  Cost savings: Prefabrication can reduce the cost of a construction project by a significant amount. Since the prefabrication process is less wasteful, material costs are lower. Quicker build times mean reduced labor costs and fewer cost and schedule overruns. Better quality control: The factory-based process for building prefabricated segments...
