What is permanent modular construction?
Permanent Modular Construction (PMC) is an alternative, innovative, sustainable construction delivery method utilizing offsite, lean manufacturing techniques to prefabricate single or multi-story whole building solutions. This offsite method takes the construction process away from the exposed site location to a controlled plant environment where it is fabricated with care, control and less environmental impact. PMC modules can be integrated into site-built projects or stand alone as a turn-key solution and can be delivered with MEP, fixtures and interior finishes in less time — with less waste, and higher quality control compared to projects utilizing only site-built construction.
PMC can offer any level of customization and complexity from a single-story office suite to a multi-story office complex; from a quick service restaurant to a medical imaging center.
