Modular Construction Environmental Benefits
Approximately 170,000 commercial buildings are constructed every year in the U.S., and nearly 44,000 commercial buildings are demolished. According to the EPA, these commercial buildings account for 18% of total energy use, 3% of total water consumption, 35% of total electricity consumption, and 18% of CO2 emissions. By 2025, they are expected to be the greatest emitters of greenhouse gases on the planet.
In addition to LEED certification credits, the permitting process for modular buildings can be significantly shorter than for stick-built buildings. Some communities offer free planning assistance for green buildings, in addition to free signage, fee reductions, tax credits, grants or low-interest loans, and marketing incentives. And building modular can reduce your energy costs by as much as 40%.
