HealthcareDesign Magazine article (Dec 2012): Is Healthcare Next to See a "Game Change" in Modular Building? compares the successes of modular, prefabrication design-construction projects of private developers with recent healthcare projects.
Excerpt: The source of the excitement was the use of modular building components—prefabricated pieces, whether for patient rooms or MEP racks—being built offsite and then brought into a facility for quick installation. Not only did the jurors note the innovation involved in thinking outside the box, but also the inherent benefits that come with it, like shaving time off the schedule, reducing construction waste, lowering labor costs, and heightening quality.
