With time for the new school year rapidly approaching, it may appear that school districts are “out of luck” with regards to adding additional modular classroom space. This may not be the case, however.
Whitley Manufacturing’s sustainable modular construction system utilizes an accelerated and modern production process and can meet even very aggressive schedules.
McGraw-Hill Construction recently released a SmartMarket Report examining the many benefits of modular construction, entitled “Prefabrication and Modularization: Increasing Productivity in the Construction Industry”.
The report focuses on how new technology, such as the Building Information Modeling (BIM) software utilized by Whitley Manufacturing, allows for increased productivity through the use of prefabricated and modular components that can seamlessly be integrated into a larger structure.
A survey of over 800 architecture and engineering professionals found:
66% report that project schedules are accelerated by modular components;
65% report that project budgets are reduced by modular components;
77% report that construction site waste is decreased by use of modular components.
RAD Technology Medical Systems’ (RAD) innovative modular radiotherapy clinic (modular building components manufactured by Whitley Manufacturing) was recently featured in Building Design + Construction’s (BD+C) Modular Advantage publication.
The modular clinic for Swedish Cancer Institute (SCI) in Ballard, Washington was designed and built to the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification requirements and will be the first LEED certified radiotherapy facility in the nation.
