Off-site construction techniques and modular wall system in general, greatly relieve the manufacturing at construction sites from the time-consuming and costly production of traditional drywall installations. For instance, factory processes can be used to replace slow and outdated traditional drywall installations with a rapid series of drywall building modules that are easily assembled together for speedier completion of wall construction projects. This is important at many facilities because the time it takes to simply build walls up as you need them, can take up valuable production time during peak production times. This method of wall construction is also preferred because it does not require the use of any particular type of skilled trades people or expensive materials.
One of the primary benefits of the modular wall system is that it allows quick installation of walls, which is a key benefit to some buildings such as warehouses, restaurants, hospitals and other types of businesses. By having the ability to quickly install walls, this cuts down on the amount of time that these structures are standing idle. Additionally, modular wall system reduces the amount of material waste by employing walls that are lighter in weight and much more durable than traditional drywall. In the case of the latter, material waste adds to the total cost of the project, as much wasted material must be discarded, making the finished wall heavier and more expensive to install. The panels used in modular walls can be made from a wide range of materials, including steel, aluminum and vinyl – thereby offering contractors a wide variety of choices for materials, styles and colors.
Off-site material management has become one of the most significant issues facing contemporary construction methods. This is especially true in the case of the use of modular walls, because these structures allow project managers to create an off-site material management plan for each project within the construction project. Once these plans are established and implemented, project managers can more effectively manage their resources so that maximum return on investment is achieved. Finally, the use of the modular walls minimizes the risk posed by the potential for catastrophic fire outbreaks.
