How Long Does It Take to Install a Modular Building?

How long does modular construction take?

One of the most common questions we get in the modular building construction industry is about the time it takes to deliver and install a used modular building or portable classroom. Understandably so - when most people looking for temporary space usually need it in a hurry.

Depending upon the size and scope of work and assuming that a supplier has the floor plan available for sale or rent, a modular building construction can take one day, one week, one month or longer. For example, a standard 24'x60' modular classroom can be delivered and installed in one day if the resources are available and the site is ready and close to the supplier. A much larger 60'x60' prefab structure consists of more pieces (or "sections" as we call them in the business) - this amounts to more transportation time, more labor and more materials for close up. All of which can command a week long installation schedule.

Using a modular building is far quicker and more convenient than finding real estate or building more space on your property...just keep the following items in mind if you choose prefab:

1. Be sure you have permits first.Visit your local building and safety department for details.
2. More space requires more time for the supplier to prepare, deliver and install.
3. Weather can delay installation for hours or days.
4. A level site with easy access is ideal for quick installation.
5. Utilities need to be ready for connection by licensed contractors.
6. Setting up a handicap ramp and stairs for access will require additional labor and time on site.
7. The set up contractor will need to close up the building at the roof, end walls and floor. This involves connecting electrical, mechanical ducting, hanging ceiling tiles, seeming carpet and wall finish materials and clean up.
8. Furnishings - always add time to the schedule for furniture delivery and set up. This is often overlooked.
