In the past, the term “modular building” has earned the reputation of being just a temporary space solution that will make do until the “real building” comes along. True, there are cases in which modular buildings are just used for short-term purposes. But these days, there are more and more instances in which modular construction is used as the alternative to traditional building construction, with little compromise to architectural features. Modular buildings must also adhere to the same full code compliance and the same design and engineering inspection standards as traditional construction, so safety and building standards aren’t compromised either. And, just as with the trend for conventional construction methods to go “green,” construction of green modular buildings has become quite popular as well.
