Architectural, Engineering and Factory
What if the architect does not have modular construction experience? That is a very serious problem. Modular construction is a specialized product. Although the basic materials used in modular construction are almost identical to site-construction, the techniques used to produce and install a modular building are unlike anything most architects were taught in school. Understanding the principles of modular construction takes years of industry experience. You are jeopardizing the very project objectives you are trying to achieve if you allow an architect to attempt to design a modular project without first mastering the art of modular manufacturing.
A modular construction specialist can bridge that gap for an architect and provide the knowledge, experience and skills required to complete the design task. People utilize modular buildings to achieve specific objectives. You need construction experience and industry knowledge to establish the specifications, scope of work and installation criteria required to meet those specific project objectives.
Below are pictures of the various phases associated with a typical manufacturing process.
