In a world where construction projects are notorious for delays and budget overruns, MBS is revolutionizing the industry by seamlessly merging lean, high-capacity manufacturing, advanced technology, and land development to deliver innovative building solutions on time, on budget, and with a focus on environmental sustainability.
The traditional construction industry grapples with challenges like delayed and inaccurate timelines, complex logistics involving multiple trades and companies, cost inefficiencies, excessive material waste, a dwindling skilled trades workforce, supply chain disruptions, and a labor shortage crisis.
MBS tackles these challenges head-on with our cutting-edge technology, streamlined manufacturing, and assembly process, effectively addressing nine significant problems within the construction industry. By offering a comprehensive solution that streamlines construction projects, MBS is poised to transform the building landscape, ensuring a more efficient, sustainable, and cost-effective future for the construction sector. Embrace the future with MBS's groundbreaking approach to building.
Traditional construction methods often take months or even years to complete a building, and it's not uncommon for project timelines to be inaccurate or extended. It's rare to hear about a major construction project that finishes on time and within budget, as factors such as labor shortages, supply chain issues, and unforeseen complications can lead to delays and increased costs.
FAST & RELIALBLE
With MBS's innovative solutions, buildings can be assembled up to 50% faster than traditional construction methods. This accelerated timeline not only saves time but also reduces the likelihood of unforeseen complications and additional costs.
By adopting MBS's panelized system, GCs and Developers can confidently deliver their projects on time and within budget, ensuring greater satisfaction for all stakeholders involved.
COST & UNCERTAINTY
Traditional construction methods often prove to be costly, labor-intensive, and wasteful, resulting in inaccurate project budgets and a high degree of uncertainty. It's not uncommon for unexpected change orders to arise, causing developers and general contractors to overcharge or shortchange each other in an attempt to protect their interests.
SAVINGS & PREDICTABILITY
Our panelized system streamlines the construction process, reduces labor requirements, and minimizes waste, leading to more accurate budget estimations and reduced uncertainty.
By adopting MBS's efficient construction approach, all parties involved can benefit from a more transparent and predictable building process, fostering better collaboration and trust within the industry.
Quality control is a significant concern in the traditional construction industry, as projects frequently involve new, untrained, or unknown workers. This variability in workforce experience can result in inconsistent quality and increased likelihood of mistakes, ultimately leading to extended project timelines and reduced profit margins.
MBS addresses these quality control challenges by implementing a streamlined, panelized construction process. With our system, components are manufactured in a controlled factory environment, ensuring consistent quality and reducing the potential for errors.
This approach not only enhances the overall quality and durability of the final product but also minimizes delays and maximizes profitability for all parties involved in the project.
LACK OF SKILLED TRADES
The construction industry is facing a significant challenge with a shortage of skilled tradespeople. As fewer new workers enter these fields, the existing skilled workforce is aging, leading to a scarcity of experienced and reliable professionals. The average age of Master Electricians is over 40, while Master Plumbers are typically over 50.
AUTOMATION & BASIC TRADES
MBS recognizes this challenge and has developed an innovative panelized construction approach that helps mitigate the impact of the skilled labor shortage. By manufacturing our building components in a controlled factory environment, we streamline the construction process and reduce the dependence on a large skilled workforce. This approach enables us to deliver high-quality, sustainable buildings more efficiently while addressing the labor gap and ensuring a sustainable future for the construction industry.
Traditional construction projects involve an average of 30 trades, each with its own schedules, crews, and material deliveries. This complexity leads to inefficiencies, increased costs, miscommunication, mistakes, trade conflicts, and a lack of accountability. Additionally, the pandemic has exacerbated the labor crisis in the construction industry, further complicating on-site coordination and increasing the risk of project delays.
LOW LABOR COSTS
MBS presents an innovative solution to tackle the challenges of having too many workers on a construction site. By utilizing our panelized construction system, we streamline the building process and minimize the number of trades required on-site. Our pre-manufactured building components enable efficient assembly, reducing the need for multiple trades to work simultaneously, and simplifying the coordination process.
General Contractors face immense stress as they juggle numerous responsibilities such as organizing orders, materials, paperwork, trades, and companies. This complexity can be extremely overwhelming and hinder the overall efficiency of construction projects. Additionally, current factory construction options primarily utilize volumetric shipping methods, which result in limited shipping ranges, wasted shipping space, and high shipping costs.
MBS's innovative "flat-pack" shipping method significantly reduces shipping constraints typically associated with volumetric factory construction. By utilizing this approach, we can deliver building components over greater distances, optimize shipping space, and substantially lower shipping costs.
Choosing MBS means embracing a more efficient, cost-effective, and stress-free construction experience for General Contractors and project stakeholders alike.
HEALTH & SAFTEY
Traditional construction sites are often plagued by health and safety hazards, putting workers at risk and leading to a higher likelihood of workman's compensation claims.
Additionally, on-site construction methods involve significant labor costs for daily cleanup, which contributes to inefficiencies and wasted resources in the construction process.
SAFE & CLEAN
MBS's approach significantly reduces the health and safety risks associated with traditional construction sites, as workers are no longer exposed to the same hazards. As a result, workman's compensation claims decrease, providing a safer and more cost-effective work environment.
Factory-controlled manufacturing process minimizes the need for daily on-site cleanup, as waste generation is significantly reduced. This leads to more efficient use of labor and resources, ultimately saving time and money for both the construction company and the project stakeholders.
The construction industry generates a significant amount of material waste, contributing to both environmental and economic concerns. In 2021, the United States produced an estimated 600 million tons of construction and demolition debris, including materials like wood, drywall, metal, and concrete. This waste not only represents a misuse of valuable resources but also adds to the cost of disposal, transportation, and project overheads.
By manufacturing building components in a controlled factory environment, MBS can optimize material usage and minimize waste generation. The precision of the manufacturing process leads to higher material efficiency and less wasted material during the assembly process on-site.
MBS's panelized construction system not only reduces the environmental impact of construction projects but also lowers the overall costs associated with waste management, transportation, and disposal.
Traditional construction methods using materials such as steel, concrete, and aluminum contribute significantly to environmental degradation and resource depletion.
In 2021, these materials were responsible for 16% of humanity's annual carbon dioxide emissions, equivalent to the carbon footprint of the entire United States.
By utilizing innovative panelized construction technology and prioritizing the use of sustainable materials like wood and mass timber, MBS significantly reduces the carbon footprint of construction projects.
The controlled manufacturing process in MBS's facilities minimizes material waste, optimizes resource usage, and promotes energy efficiency. Moreover, the use of sustainable materials like wood contributes to carbon sequestration, helping to mitigate the effects of climate change.
