Modular building expert discusses the innovative new building technique on the ModSpace blog
BERWYN, Pa., Oct 13, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — In a new blog post from ModSpace, Vice President of Construction Services and Architect Sam Tikriti introduces the company’s new floorless approach to prefabricated construction that puts modular on the same level, literally, as traditional building methods.
“Custom modular construction has come a long way with regard to design, engineering and applications,” says Tikriti. “Floorless modular building illustrates the capabilities of modular to deliver the same or better quality as traditional construction in significantly less time.”
Floorless modular installations are ideal for architects and clients looking for low-site-impact, quickly-delivered and cost-effective building solutions. With floorless installations, a grade-level slab of concrete is poured at the site prior to the delivery of the modules. At the same time, the modular structures are built in a factory. Finally, the completed modules are delivered and lowered onto the concrete floor and permanently secured.
