MiTek and Danny Forster & Architecture to Offer a New Spin on Modular Construction
MiTek’s new Modular Initiative looks to modernize the modular building process by performing off-site construction near the construction site, making transportation of the units safer and less expensive. Discussed in a new Wall Street Journal article, assembly of these units will be done by general contractors in the warehouse, instead of on the jobsite, and allow for mechanical, electrical and plumbing to be pre-installed in an enclosed environment.
This initiative plans to automate much of its 225,000-square-foot factory by using robot welders and other automated systems—similar to the production line of the automotive industry. This will allow construction to not just be faster but more efficient, allowing for cost savings and increased safety.
