Discover the Versatility of Modular Buildings for Sale
Modular buildings for sale are becoming increasingly popular as a cost-effective and versatile solution for businesses, organizations, and individuals. Whether you need additional office space, a temporary classroom, or a permanent structure, modular buildings can provide the perfect solution. Here we will explore the many benefits of modular buildings and how they can be used in a variety of applications.
One of the biggest advantages of modular buildings is their cost savings. Modular buildings are typically much less expensive than traditional construction methods, making them an attractive option for businesses on a budget. Additionally, modular buildings can be constructed quickly and efficiently, resulting in lower labor costs. This makes them an ideal choice for businesses that need to expand quickly or need additional space without breaking the bank.
Modular buildings offer great flexibility when it comes to design and layout. They can be customized to fit any space or application, allowing you to create the perfect environment for your business or organization. Additionally, modular buildings can be easily moved or reconfigured if needed, making them ideal for temporary uses such as classrooms or event spaces.
Finally, modular buildings are incredibly durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions such as high winds and heavy snowfall. This makes them an ideal choice for businesses located in areas prone to extreme weather conditions. Additionally, modular buildings are built with quality materials that are designed to last for years to come, ensuring that your investment is protected over time.
In conclusion, modular buildings offer numerous benefits that make them an attractive option for businesses and organizations looking for cost-effective solutions. From their cost savings to their flexibility and durability, modular buildings are an excellent choice for any application.

Modular Construction Cubix Othello Multifamily Case Study
This presentation showcases a multi-family project built using modular construction: Cubix Othello in Seattle. The material includes lessons learned from different perspectives: project owner, architect and modular builder. The case study was of the MOD X Northwest, an event focused on an emerging offsite modular industry and region, the Pacific Northwest. JMA is excited to be teaming up with NexGen Housing Partners and Metric Modular at MOD X Northwest, February 5-7th!

- 51. Challenges Outside the Box: Modular Financing
- 52. Challenges Outside the “Box”: Modular Financing Loan Committees prefer easy deals!01 General lack of experience makes Loan Committees nervous!02 Financing a Modular Project has “unique” requirements • It’s a Personal Property until it’s affixed (UCC filings needed) • Draw requests could be more frequent than monthly • Deposit required to start ordering materials • Balance sheet strength of the modular building 03
- 53. Challenges Outside the “Box”: Modular Financing Irony Alert! The stronger the economy, the harder to get a modular loan! 04 How do you get a Loan Committee to buy into “unique” requirements? • Work hard to get early buy-in / anticipate concerns • Modular as a tool in the affordable housing toolbox • Have an experienced team 05
- 54. What Have We Learned?
- 55. Design: Lessons Learned Early Collaboration • With the modular manufacturer design/engineering team a necessity 01 Material/Product decisions • Requires advance thought and commitment 02 Site-Built Coordination • It cannot be figured out during construction if it is to match the offsite components 03 Prototype Box Review • A critical part of the process04 Simplify, Simplify, Simplify • The advantage of modular is efficiency, the design is a key component to that 05
