Classification of modular buildings

Modular building is the world's leading building system because it saves developers and general contractors costs and reduces project schedules.

Modular buildings can be divided into two categories:


Permanent Modular Buildings (PMC)

Permanent Modular Buildings (PMC) are permanent buildings that, once completed, resemble traditional real estate projects in almost any form. . Using the PMC process, the modules can be retrofitted to existing buildings, or the project is designed around modular building technology and has been a turnkey solution from the start.


Non-Permanent Modular Buildings (NPMC)

Non-Permanent Modular Buildings (NPMC) refers to the use of modular technology to create movable Buildings and structures, such as mobile classrooms, showrooms or temporary medical clinics. Like the PMC project, NPMC buildings are built to local building codes and regulations, but can be relocated and retrofitted as needed.

PMC and NPMC both prefabricate functional building units in a controlled factory environment. The individual “modules” or “pods” are then transported to the site and hoisted to the appropriate location for seaming and interior installation.

Modular buildings save time, reduce waste, and significantly increase the efficiency of construction for multiple building applications, whether using permanent or mobile structures (25%-50% see below).

Segment of Permanent and Non-Permanent Modular Buildings According to the Institute for Modular Building Research (MBI), most building applications are now using modular building systems. Modular solutions have unique advantages in every application market. The most commonly used permanent modular construction markets include:

Modular buildings are ideal for apartment buildings, apartments and other types of multi-family projects. Hotels and dormitories are also available for PMC, ensuring quality control of modules and buildings of the same specifications, shortening schedules, increasing occupancy rates and return on investment.


Academic institutions. Whether it's a simple classroom or a large campus, PMC can meet the needs of schools and universities in just 90 days, enabling schools to start quickly and accommodate student groups of any size.

PMC is building medical facilities of all sizes, including hospitals, clinics, dental clinics and surgical centers.

Administrative/commercial building. PMC can be used to build office buildings and administrative spaces from small business facilities to corporate headquarters. PMC allows for custom modifications to any interior space, whether it be an office, kitchen, meeting room or open space for partitions and compartments.

Institutional projects. Since PMC construction complies with local regulations, it can be aligned with existing architectures and can often accommodate a restricted budget. PMC buildings can be widely used in churches, fire stations, police stations, schools, prisons and other types of non-profit or public works projects.

Retail business and commercial projects. Restaurants, grocery stores and retail stores can be built quickly and efficiently through PMC, helping franchise owners and entrepreneurs to shop faster.

The market segment of non-permanent modular buildings MBI also noted the market for non-permanent modular structure solution services, as well as some unique use cases:

because of full functionality The NPMC modules (such as temporary classrooms and university campus add-ons) can be deployed in one day, and schools can accommodate a rapidly growing student population.

Whether it is a temporary laboratory that can be relocated, a hospital extension or a specialist clinic, NPMC can produce furniture facilities suitable for medical procedures and housing equipment.

Commercial and administrative buildings. The NPMC chartered booth and sales office can be completed within 24 hours. For corporate office needs, NPMC can quickly deliver any configured mobile office space module, including meeting rooms and partition space.

Depending on safety regulations and requirements, NPMC can provide single or multi-level security offices, weighing stations and toll stations, buildings with dual swing doors and high-strength retaining walls.

Emergency and disaster relief buildings. In the event of a natural disaster, the NPMC method can quickly produce emergency medical clinics, equipment warehouses and temporary housing for victims and rescue workers.


Main indicators and statistics for PMC and NPMC

Modular buildings have a long-term and prosperous trend, whether it is pmc or npmc. Permanent modular buildings and non-permanent mobile modular buildings are more competitive than on-site buildings. At the same time, the modular construction industry is also evolving steadily, and general contractors and related companies have recognized the advantages of high returns and stable demand for modular buildings around the world.
