Introduction to Modular Construction

A book every modular construction professional should have in their library.

 

The Modular Building Institute along with Clemson University developed "Introduction to Commercial Modular Construction" over two years with the goal of introducing the reader to an innovative and exciting construction method. This book discusses the modular building process compared to traditional site-built construction and is designed to help the reader understand terminology and concepts of modular building including client needs, design, fabrication, transportation, and installation.


Introduction to Modular Construction is also available as a self-paced online course worth 1.5CEUs upon successful completion.
