The First Step of Modular Construction is Design

The site has been selected, the budget is approved, and you’re ready to move forward with your modular construction project – now what? Before anything else can move forward, you need a design.

The modular building design process converts your building requirements into a set of instructions for your builder. Affordable Structures encourage you to present your design ideas as the first step in construction. We offer three different design routes that can help you make a perfect choice.

Standard Series
Our medium quality modular trailer gives you an aesthetically pleasing building with durable materials at an affordable price. We use Hardie Board fiber cement siding for its long life and attractive appearance. Its resistance to fire and storm damage stems from its composition of sand and cement.

An excellent design features a beautiful roofline, and your choices include a vertical parapet or a classic Mansard. Our solid core interior oak doors and popcorn ceilings bring a pleasing ambiance to the rooms. We use 1/8” vinyl composition tile or a commercial grade of black carpet on the floors to create a distinctive appearance. Each building receives a 12-month factory warranty that starts on completion of the manufacturing process.

Commercial Series
We offer our highest quality of modular buildings at Rapid Response pricing to satisfy our most discerning commercial clients. Some features that you may appreciate include upgraded trim packages for the exterior that create an aesthetically pleasing effect for your customers and staff. Our roof-mounted HVAC carries an extended factory warranty.

We honor a commitment that we share with the U.S. Green Build Council (USGBC) to respect the environment. As a member of USGBC, Affordable Structures builds commercial modular buildings that can meet GREEN building standards. During the modular building design process, let us know of your interest in qualifying for the certification. We can construct a modular building that meets your specifications, and the process starts with developing a design.

Custom Series
Arched doorways and windows as well as pitched roofs of metal or Spanish tile distinguish our buildings and reflect your modular building design concepts. Through our custom modular process, we can create a structure that rivals traditional buildings at a fraction of the cost. A custom modular building may offer you the style and design that you prefer as a uniquely distinctive structure. Our custom models use attractive siding materials such as stucco, brick or Nichiha fiber cement products.

Contact Affordable Structures to find how we can bring your design to fruition with a modular building that demonstrates your ideal design concepts.

You can see overcrowding happening everywhere. In our schools, hospitals and offices people are sitting on top of one another. When overcrowding has become too much to bear, moving into or building a new space both seem like obvious options but they are not always the most viable.
