Traditional Construction versus Modular Building Design

There are numerous differences between traditional construction and modular building design (i.e. buildings fabricated with steel insulated panels). First and foremost, with traditional construction, insulation is typically an “afterthought,” requiring a second trade to fulfill any insulation requirements. When fabricating a building with metal panels, its structure, exterior and interior thermal barriers are constructed at one time, decreasing the use of multiple trades and incorporating both insulation and structure into one streamlined construction process.

In modular building design, streamlining your construction process decreases on-the-job construction time, furthered hastened with the installation process of PermaTherm’s steel insulated panels. Our tongue-and-groove connection system has been perfected over the past 25 years, creating an installation process that is much more rapid than typical construction methodologies – helping you stay within your budget and time constraints.

PermaTherm’s Steel Insulated Panels

Strength is a factor in traditional construction, and PermaTherm’s steel insulated panels are generally stronger than most materials used in traditional construction methods, reinforcing the structure of any type of building. Our modular building design can create buildings that are hurricane-resistant and durable against hazardous elemental conditions.

Additionally, a building constructed from PermaTherm’s steel insulated panels is environmentally-friendly, as there is never any on-the-job waste, no matter what the application. Our modular building design has a lower energy demand, and our exterior and interior core material is either made from recycled content or is entirely recyclable.

A building fabricated from our metal panels is entirely customizable. PermaTherm’s insulated metal panels are extremely versatile, and can be fabricated to fit into even the most complicated architectural designs.

Overall, modular building design can save you construction time, cost and energy, with savings that last for the lifetime of the building application.
