Modular construction is often commonly associated with mobile home builds (a great application!), but one of the benefits of modular construction is its adaptability, allowing the modular approach to be used to create a variety of different projects.
At Vipco, we work with builders, architects, and designers who are creating a multitude of different projects with a modular approach. Here are some of the trending modular construction projects that we are seeing continue to grow in popularity:
- Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs): ADUs are small, self-contained units that can be added to an existing property, providing additional living space for family members, guests, or as a rental unit.
- Tiny homes: Tiny homes are compact modular homes that typically range in size from 100-400 square feet. They are designed to maximize space and minimize environmental impact.
- Prefabricated homes: Prefabricated homes are fully constructed off-site and then transported to the building site for installation. They are available in a variety of styles and sizes, from single-family homes to multi-family units.
- Modular apartment buildings: Modular apartment buildings are multi-unit buildings that are constructed off-site and then transported to the building site for installation. They offer a faster construction time compared to traditional stick-built apartment buildings.
- Modular offices: Modular offices are pre-fabricated office buildings that can be customized to meet specific business needs. They are designed to be quickly assembled and can be relocated if needed.
- Modular hotels: Modular hotels are pre-fabricated hotel rooms that can be assembled on-site to create a full-service hotel. They offer a faster construction time compared to traditional stick-built hotels.
Overall, the modular housing industry is expanding and innovating, offering a wide range of products to meet various housing and commercial needs. Modular construction continues to be an increasingly popular building approach across Canada in a variety of applications and industries. We’re excited to be a part of this evolution in the industry, helping more Canadian construction leaders create more projects in more communities, coast-to-coast.
