The Top 6 Benefits of EPS Building Systems for Construction Firms

Construction projects are notorious for their timeline and cost overruns. Weather, labor issues and other factors often lead to blown deadlines, and a volatile market for materials can mean volatility for project budgets.

What if there was a better way? A way to work quickly and efficiently for clients while providing cost certainty and high-quality results?

That’s what modular building systems provide to the construction firms that are willing to explore them.

You want to provide value and quality for your clients. Modular building systems can help you do both fronts while also providing a range of other benefits. Below, learn more about the top six benefits of modular construction projects and what they can do for your construction firm.

1. Speed

Want to work faster than ever before without sacrificing quality? Modular building systems can be a great way to save time on construction projects. The modularity of the panels allows for the creation of highly standardized solutions, which can optimize production and reduce construction timelines.

At Vero Building Systems, we use the Vero Building System, which is known to reduce construction timelines by up to 40%. The Vero Building System is a modular building system that uses prefabricated panels to create highly customized solutions. The modularity of the panels allows for a high degree of flexibility in the design, and the prefabrication of the panels significantly reduces the amount of time required for construction.

In addition, the Vero Building System is fully compatible with traditional building methods, so it can be used in conjunction with existing construction techniques. (More on this below.) As a result, the Vero Building System is an ideal solution for projects that require a fast turnaround time.

2. Versatility

Modular building systems are highly versatile and can be used for a wide range of construction projects. Because the components are highly flexible and equipped with a range of elements, they are suitable for construction of almost any type: single-family homes, multi-family complexes, office buildings, industrial projects, plus more.

You can achieve any geometric shape needed during the construction process, including flat or curved components, simply by cutting on-site. This flexibility and versatility opens up a wide range of possibilities for your firm. 

Looking to grow beyond home construction? You can use the same modular components and processes to build office buildings, take on public sector projects, work with multi-family clients, as well as explore other types of construction.

When you use traditional construction methods, you often get locked into a specific type of project. The approaches used to build a single-family home are much different than those used to complete an office park. With modular building systems, you can move much more seamlessly between different types of construction.

3. Integrations

As alluded to above, opting for modular buildings doesn’t necessarily mean you’re restricted to modular construction exclusively. Rather, modular systems are designed to mesh seamlessly with more traditional building materials and methods.

For example, the modular construction process can be used in tandem with reinforced concrete and steel framing to complete structures. Alternatively, modular components can also be anchored to steel, wood or pre-stressed concrete as needed. 

Ultimately, the goal is to provide maximum flexibility while still ensuring a high degree of quality control. When executed correctly, modular construction can be a powerful tool in the builder’s arsenal.

There’s also a myth that modular components cannot be customized and/or stylized to meet the specific wants and needs of the client. Nothing could be further from the truth. Permanent modular construction projects are often available in a wide range of finishes, including traditional paintwork, smoothed plaster, plus others.

4. Cost Effectiveness

Modular buildings have been a game-changer for the construction industry, providing a more efficient and cost-effective way to build high-quality structures. The Vero Building System that Vero Building Systems works with is the best example of this type of system.

This system uses prefabricated panels that are moved and assembled on site, resulting in an estimated 30% savings compared to traditional construction methods. In addition to being more economical, modular systems also offer a number of other benefits. 

For example, they often result in less construction waste, which creates savings. And they can be constructed in a shorter time frame — again, limiting costs related to labor.

As the demand for high-quality, affordable housing continues to grow, it’s likely that modular systems will play an increasingly important role in the construction industry. If you stick exclusively to traditional construction processes and methods, you may find that your firm’s opportunities become limited.

5. Sustainability

Permanent modular buildings are known to be more energy-efficient and sustainable than traditional structures. They use an insulating envelope created by the components’ polystyrene cores to rid modular buildings of thermal bridges and ducts.

Vero is the leader in sustainable, energy-efficient modular buildings. Using Vero components for permanent modular construction can reduce carbon emissions by 60% compared to traditional structures.

As sustainability and energy-efficiency become more highly regulated and more of an emphasis for clients, construction firms that embrace modular buildings will be better positioned to get more than their fair share of work.

6. Safety

Because modular panels are created via offsite construction, the process is much safer for work crews than when working on conventionally constructed buildings. Your team members can rest assured that they are working on projects that promote the highest levels of safety.

The emphasis on safety translates to occupants, too. After construction, modular buildings are:

  • Load-resistant
  • Blast-resistant
  • Earthquake-resistant
  • Fire-resistant
  • Cyclone-resistant

Your clients can rest assured they are paying you for a finished product that will stand the test of time.

In an age where it can be difficult to find high-quality labor, your firm can use safety as a selling point. Rather than asking your employees to spend time on job sites where falls and other threats to safety are common, you can offer them a much more controlled environment where they can feel safe and confident each day.

Why Vero Building Systems?

Are you ready to explore the benefits of modular construction for your firm and its clients? At Vero Building Systems, we work with the Vero Building System, which is the most innovative and advanced way to create a modular structure.

For more than 35 years, construction firms like yours have been using the Vero Building System to quickly complete structures that are just as affordable as they are safe and durable. Vero provides panels made of expanded polystyrene that’s enclosed by double-galvanized steel mesh. The panels are created in a factory and assembled on-site for maximum efficiency.
