“My day care is a brick building. I am in need of some office space. Somehow I would like the office space to be attached to the building or have some type of entrance to the building. I do not want the metal building to be a separate part of the center. My biggest question is: Is there a way for you to design a building that can be attached to a pre-existing building? Just curious about what the modular buildings prices would be.”

Modular Buildings Advice

Modular Buildings Basics

Modular buildings are an alternative to traditional to site-built construction in which up to 90% of the construction takes place in a factory. Walls, floor, and ceiling, along with wiring, plumbing, and even carpeting, are all pre-assembled, then the building is shipped to your destination in separate pieces — hence the name "modular."

The modules are joined together when they arrive at your location, creating a seamless finished product. Modular construction saves both time and money over traditional on-site construction, while still providing an enormous amount of flexibility in design. One of their most popular uses is in education, but modular buildings are becoming more popular in many types of construction, from residential to commercial to industrial.
