5 Modular Building Myths Debunked

  1. Modular buildings are unsafe

One common misconception is that modular and portable buildings are unsafe. This is of course not true. Modular buildings, especially the ones that we offer here at Insite Portable Accommodation are required to meet a number of strict safety codes and regulations before becoming available to the public. At every stage of modular building construction strict inspections take place, ensuring that all modular structures are safe in inhabit.

  1. Modular buildings are poor quality

This may have been true once-upon-a-time however, modular buildings have over the years risen in popularity, encouraging manufacturers to up their games and impress. There are now masses of modular buildings available that are incredibly high quality, well constructed and energy efficient (browse our website to see).

  1. Modular buildings are boring

Many people often shy away from modular buildings because they are ‘boring’. However, gone are the days where modular buildings all look the same. Modular construction now offers a huge variety as can be seen when browsing our website – We currently offer a range of different and unique modular buildings including a fantastic wood cladded modular building. Anyone considering modular construction should look on Google today for impressive ideas that they can incorporate.

  1. Modular buildings are expensive

Of course, the cost of modular building and construction depends on the project, but modular buildings are available from incredibly low prices – especially in comparison to traditionally built structures.  Not only are the buildings themselves more affordable to obtain but as they are mainly constructed in factories, labour costs can also be greatly reduced. All of the prices for our modular buildings can be seen here:

  1. Modular buildings are environmentally unfriendly

Modular buildings are actually incredibly environmentally friendly in comparison to almost all other building types. Modular buildings are made in controlled factories that efficiently use resources to maximize energy and minimize waste. As time goes on modular buildings are becoming more and more energy-efficient with owners choosing to add to them geothermal systems, solar heat panels, energy efficient glass and more.

As you can see modular buildings are actually incredible – offering a multitude of benefits and no apparent negative qualities.
