Custom Modular Buildings

Product Info

Modular construction is the process of fabricating various types of buildings in a controlled environment, away from the building’s destination site. Once completed, the buildings are then transported to and installed at their intended location.

CORCAN utilizes a mix of both old and new techniques when producing our modular buildings. In additional to Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and Computer Assisted Manufacturing (CAM), CORCAN Custom Modular buildings utilize much of the same traditional materials and techniques used in stick-built construction. However, CORCAN optimizes on those processes by producing in a highly controlled and predictable environment. This process ensures that all CORCAN Custom Modular buildings are built to the highest quality standards that meet or exceed all National and Provincial building codes.

CORCAN Custom Modular buildings have been used in a wide variety of applications including residential housing, permanent and temporary workforce accommodation, commercial and office space, day care centres, schools and detention centres. With the design, construction and finishing completely customizable, CORCAN Custom Modular buildings have limitless applications.

Benefits of CORCAN Modular

  • Full Custom design services – Your project is custom designed to suit your needs, complete with engineer stamped drawing to include structural, electrical, ventilation, and fire protection systems.
  • Predictability – In a controlled environment, production is much more predictable and therefore more often on schedule.
  • CORCAN Programs – Allows CORCAN to offer programs to offenders in a controlled environment while minimizing risk. These programs have been shown to reduce instances of reoffending, positively contributing to public safety.
  • Multitask – Prepare the construction site while simultaneously building the structure in one of CORCAN’s shops. It is also possible to build multiple units, simultaneously at multiple shops.
  • Year round construction – CORCAN modular buildings can be produced year round, no matter the weather conditions, often in temperature controlled environments.
  • Less waste – Building similar units in a controlled space develops predictable material requirements which means less material is ordered and less is wasted. Building materials are not exposed to the elements, preserving them. Not only does this benefit the environment, it also saves on material cost.
  • Remote locations  It is often not viable to complete projects in remote areas or areas with extreme weather conditions using traditional construction methods. Through the use of modular construction, buildings can be completed and then shipped to remote areas that would normally prohibit construction.
  • Improved Air Quality – Many of the indoor air quality issues in new construction result from high moisture levels in the framing materials. Since our modular units are primarily completed in a controlled setting using dry materials, the potential for high levels of moisture being trapped in the new construction is greatly reduced.
  • Craftsmanship – All CORCAN modular buildings meet or exceed National and Provincial buildings codes and are backed by a 1-year warranty.
