Designing Out Waste Using Modular Construction

With the momentum of various green rating programs and standards, there has been a great deal of discussion regarding minimizing the amount of construction waste sent to the landfills. The impact of construction and demolition debris (C&D) on the environment is staggering. A recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report estimated that more than 135 million tons of debris from construction sites is brought to landfills every year, making it the single largest source in the waste stream.

A recent white paper by MBI on how modular construction dovetails into the LEED rating system states that one of the great economies of modular construction is the ability to assemble repetitive units in controlled conditions. Another is to minimize material waste associated with conventional construction due to weather intrusion and construction site theft. Whole modular units – largely finished prior to arriving at the construction site – can significantly limit construction waste generated at the site and contribute directly to construction site waste management.
