There are different types and techniques of modular building and construction being used to increase efficiency and quality, lower cost and quicken building times. These include panelized systems, wood-frame modular, shipping container housing and others. In this workshop, we will look at the pros and cons of this style of building in new, additions, and temporary construction.
