← Fabrication / Modular Fabrication
Modular fabrication can take many forms and is applied in virtually every sector of the industry. The size of modular units can range from a small skid package of pumps and associated valves and controls to structures that are several stories high or hundreds of feet in length. Complete building systems such as central heating and cooling plants can be constructed using modular fabrication techniques. Module size is only limited by the imagination of designers and engineers and the mode of transportation. Improvements in BIM have led to an ever increasing role for modular construction in the institutional and commercial arena. Modular fabrication of MEP corridor racks, head walls and bathroom pods is fast becoming the norm for the construction of hospitals. Modular construction offers many advantages, including better control of quality, schedules and budgets. Contractors and owners alike are turning to modular fabrication and construction for the safety benefits realized by reducing the stacking of the various trades that is common on most job sites. The United Association’s vast experience in traditional construction methods coupled with our decades-long commitment to pipe fabrication make our members and signatory contractors the perfect choice for all your modular fabrication/construction needs.
