At Module Building Systems Inc. we are introducing the next phase of the building industry to North America.
We have designed a revolutionary modular panel construction system. Our panels are manufactured in a factory-controlled environment, delivered in a flat-pack system, and assembled on-site in industry record time and below traditional construction costs.
We see the future through the eyes of innovation.
The building industry is one of the least innovative industries around the world.
We are still constructing buildings on site with long and inaccurate timelines, complex logistics with multiple trades and companies, cost inefficiencies, large amounts of material waste, and a rapidly shrinking skilled trades workforce.
When was the last time you heard of a construction or significant development project being on time and budget?
We are driven to see the world of high-capacity manufacturing and land development merged into a dynamic and innovative industry that brings new buildings to market on time and within budget.
Standard construction takes months, sometimes years, to deliver a building.
Project timelines are often inaccurate. When was the last time you heard of a significant construction project on time and budget?
COST & UNCERTAINTY
Current construction methods are expensive, labor-intensive, and wasteful.
Project budgets are often inaccurate. Unexpected change orders. Developers
and CG’s are overcharging, and shortchanging
each other is common.
Projects often have new, untrained, and unknown workers. This makes the quality of each project a gamble. Mistakes lead to change orders which significantly increase costs.
LACK OF SKILLED TRADES
With fewer new workers entering the skilled trade industries, skilled and reliable options in the workforce are unsustainable.

FAST & RELIALBLE
Know exactly when a project will be delivered. Increase predictability and reduce risk with a consistent and precise product. Our module panel system will assemble a building more than 50% faster than current construction methods. Factory construction time overlaps site development and foundation forming time. Paired with our quick-assembly panel system, we deliver projects in industry record-setting time.
SAVINGS & PREDICTABILITY
Know precisely how much a project will cost from start to finish. Our building method will save our clients time and money on their developments. Prefabricated construction offers improved cost control and predictability.
Precision increases predictability. We can eliminate unit defects, on-site change orders, and costly on-site construction mistakes based on innovative manufacturing principles, automated production systems, and an advanced, rigorous quality control program.
AUTOMATION & BASIC TRADES
With the depleting skilled trades workforce, our building method will rely on automation and require fewer trades, solving an industry-wide and economic problem to keep up with our building needs.
More Industry Problems
There are an average of 30 trades per project, each with agendas, crews, and material deliveries. This is inefficient, expensive, leads to miscommunication and mistakes, the conflict between trades, and lack of accountability. The pandemic has caused a severe problem of acquiring and retaining employees and hiring labor.
A General Contractors' job is stressful. It can be extremely overwhelming with a laundry list of orders, materials, paperwork, trades, and companies to organize.
Other factory construction options ship buildings volumetric, limiting shipping range and expensive shipping rates.
HEALTH & SAFTEY
Current construction sites are full of potential health and safety risks for workers resulting in workman's comp claims. On-Site construction leads to wasted labor for daily cleanup.
In 2019 the U.S. produced 700 million tons of construction and demolition waste. Waste material hurts general contractors' and developers' margins.
Current construction methods result in large amounts of material waste and strain our environment and natural resources. Significantly less water is used during the construction of a wood building when compared to steel and concrete.
LOW LABOUR COSTS
Installation and Assembly crews are kept small, reducing labor costs. Usually only needing five riggers, two carpenters, and two engineers to install a 5000 ft2 building.
Our module panel system is optimized for quick and
easy delivery, shipped in a “flat-pack” panel configuration. Think IKEA, but for buildings. This results in lower transportation costs and more extended range, simplified on-site traffic, and easy to manage
site logistics. We can ship 1500 miles from our manufacturing facility without affecting our margins.
SAFE & CLEAN
Prefabricated construction reduces exposure to high-risk site conditions. Our building method eliminates the need for extensive construction tools and hazardous materials and minimizes elevated work requirements.
Pre-manufacturing can reduce waste to landfill sites by over 80%. Due to our precision manufacturing process, little to no material waste is created on the job site or in off-site construction. Our buildings can be disassembled and repurposed, eliminating demolition.
Wood and timber are renewable resources and require 70-90% less energy to convert vs. steel and 94% less than aluminum.
Steel, concrete, and aluminum construction are responsible for 8% of global CO2 emissions.
