A BETTER WAY TO BUILD FOR TOMORROW

MBS-Temporary-Clinic-Exterior-07.jpg

Module Building Systems is introducing the next phase of the building industry in North America.

We have designed a revolutionary modular, panelized 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.
 

Think IKEA, but for buildings.

We see the future through the eyes of innovation.

When was the last time you heard of a construction or significant development project being on time and on budget? 

 

We are driven to see the world of lean, high capacity manufacturing, technology, and land development merged into a dynamic and innovative industry that brings new buildings to market in record time, on budget, below traditional costs, and environmentally sustainable.

 

The industry is still constructing buildings on site with delayed and inaccurate timelines, complex logistics with multiple trades and companies, cost inefficiencies, unsustainable amounts of material waste, a rapidly shrinking skilled trades workforce, supply chain issues, and a labor shortage crisis.


MBS’ technology, manufacturing, and assembly process solves the construction industry’s nine significant problems.

CONSTRUCTION TIME

Standard construction takes months, sometimes years, to deliver a building. Project timelines are often inaccurate.

When was the last time you heard of a major construction project being on time and on budget?

COST & UNCERTAINTY

Current construction methods are expensive,  labor-intensive, and wasteful. Project budgets are almost always inaccurate. Unexpected change orders with developers and CGs overcharging and shortchanging each other are common within the industry.

QUALITY CONTROL

Projects often have new, untrained, and unknown workers. This makes the quality of each project a gamble. Mistakes lead to longer projects that reduce profit margins.

LACK OF SKILLED TRADES

With fewer new workers entering the skilled trade industries, skilled and reliable options in the workforce are not available and unsustainable.

Industry Problems

Our Solutions

FAST & RELIALBLE

GCs and Developers know precisely when a project will be delivered. MBS increases predictability and reduces risk with a consistent and precise product. 

 

Our panelized system can assemble a building 50% quicker than current construction methods.

SAVINGS & PREDICTABILITY

GCs and Developers know precisely how much a  project will cost from start to finish. 

 

MBS’ building method will save our clients time and money on their projects. Our panelized system offers improved cost control and predictability.

PRECISION QUALITY

Precision increases predictability. MBS' eliminates unit defects, on-site change orders, and costly 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, MBS’ building method will rely on automation with CNC machines and require fewer trades and employees, helping solve an industry-wide and economic problem in construction.

More Industry Problems

LABOR SHORTAGES

There are an average of 30 trades per project, each with its agendas, crews, and material deliveries. This is inefficient and expensive, leading to miscommunication, mistakes, trade conflicts, and a lack of accountability.

 

The pandemic has created a labor crisis within the construction industry.

LOGISTICS

A General Contractors' job is stressful. With a laundry list of orders, materials, paperwork, trades, and companies to organize, it can be extremely overwhelming.

 

Other factory construction options ship buildings volumetric, leading to limited shipping range, wasted shipping space, 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.

MATERIAL WASTE

In 2019 the U.S. produced 700 million tons of construction and demolition waste. Not only is this horrible for the environment, waste material directly affects GCs and developers' margins.

UNSUSTAINABLE

Current construction methods result in large amounts of material waste and strain our environment and natural resources.

Steel, concrete, and aluminum construction are responsible for 16% of humanity’s annual carbon dioxide emissions. That is equivalent to the carbon footprint of the US.

More Solutions

LOW LABOUR COSTS

MBS’ Manufacturing, Installation, and Assembly crews are kept small, reducing labor costs. Usually only needing five riggers, two carpenters, two engineers, and two general laborers to install a project.

 

In partnership with Ranken Technical College, MBS will take advantage of paid internships with their construction and engineering students for reduced labor costs.

SIMPLE DELIVERY

MBS’ panelized system is optimized for quick and easy delivery, shipped in a “flat-pack” configuration. Think IKEA, but for buildings.

 

This method provides lower transportation costs, a more extended range, simplified on-site traffic, and easy-to-manage site logistics. MBS can ship 1000 miles from our manufacturing facility to project sites.

SAFE & CLEAN

Offsite construction reduces exposure to high-risk site conditions. MBS’ building and assembly method eliminates the need for extensive construction tools and hazardous materials and minimizes the need for elevated work requirements, including exterior scaffolding.

MINIMAL WASTE

Offsite construction can reduce waste to landfill sites by over 80%. MBS’ precision manufacturing process creates little to no material waste on the job site or during offsite manufacturing.  MBS buildings can be disassembled and repurposed, eliminating demolition and material waste.

SUSTAINABLITY

Wood is a renewable resource and requires 70-90% less energy to convert vs, steel and 94% less than aluminum. Significantly less water is used during the construction of a wood building when compared to steel and concrete.

MBS buildings can be disassembled, relocated, and refurbished instead of demolished.

We would love to hear from you.
