Construction has changed greatly over the past 10-15 years. The time of constructing a building or structure piece by piece is gone. In an effort to save time, schedule, and worker safety, construction companies are looking to construct a structure in larger pieces in a safe environment off site and then transport and set in location as the schedule determines. Advances in construction equipment has made modularization possible. An example of this can be found here.
Zuendt Engineering has vast experience in modularization. We helped to modularize Duke Energy’s Cliffside Steam Station Unit 6 , during construction, in order to save construction time and budget. Zuendt Engineering will review your construction project and work with the owner or the construction company to show which structures would benefit from modularization. Zuendt Engineering will perform the analysis of the structure to ensure it can handle being lifted in sections versus being stick built, as well as preparing the lift plan to ensure the craft will perform the lift safely.
