Class Two: Going Modular: First Steps Q&A
At what point should you make the decision to go modular and with whom should you consult? What are modular boxes? How do you finance them? This Q&A should help you answer whether modular could be a good fit.
Class Three: Building low- and mid-rise: Does it make sense?
For any three to six story building, modular can be a great fit. For these low- to mid-rise structures, modular boxes with wood framing are widely preferred. These relatively lightweight units are quick to assemble and maintain high precision. Find out all about their production, shipping, and jobsite happenings in this Q&A.
Class Four: Building mid- to high-rise: Is it safe?
Buildings as high as 40 stories are assembled using manufactured construction. In such cases, special steel-framed modular boxes provide structural strength to the massive structure. Moreover, modular buildings can withstand earthquakes and storms. This Q&A describes the making, assembly, and nature of steel prefab construction.
The nitty-gritty of modular construction can be overwhelming to a lay person, but with the right partner you can stack up your next hotel hassle-free. Modz4 is the Modular Department of Base4, focused on all things Modular. Modz4 is also a member of the Modular Building Association—an international non-profit trade body that connects A/E professionals, manufacturers, suppliers, owners/developers, GCs, and dealers, working together to propel offsite construction.
This membership strengthens our commitment to the permanent modular construction industry. It also grants us access to powerful resources to stay ahead of the curve and provide well-informed, superior solutions.
Starting next week, Base4 will highlight some of our team leads who are experts in their area of design. Here are some of our team members whom you will be seeing over the next few weeks!
