How Modular Won the Day
Mid South was so impressed by their experience working with Nelson and the
product, it asked Emery to bid for another project.
"He told me, I've got this building in the back that I'm tearing down and I want to get a quote for modular construction versus conventional construction," says Emery. "It was a pretty tough competitive situation."
Working from a rough floor plan, Emery and Starrco developed a ballpark quote and highlighted how a modular solution would be a better fit for Mid South's needs than conventional construction.
- The entire project could be depreciated at once. If the company built conventionally, depreciation would take 39 years.
- Starrco pre-engineers every facet of the project to the exact specifications of the client and the space, then manufactures every component of the building offsite. Fast installation by a factory-trained crew meant the building would be up and running 75 percent faster than if they opted for the conventional route.
- Modular provides options to effortlessly expand the building. Wall panels can be easily moved and new rooms or even a second floor can be added when they need more space.
Design and Engineering Support from the
Starrco Team of Experts
It took a few months for Mid South to refine the floor plan to meet its exact needs. Every step of the way, Emery leaned on the expertise of the Starrco team.
Working closely with Starrco's Territory Manager Mark Worth as well as company Vice President Dave Cox
, no detail was left to chance.
"Incorporating plumbing and restrooms is a much more detailed process than basic modular construction," says Emery. "Everything has to be plumbed first, and then you can finish the building around the plumbing."
Mid South has everything they wanted in their new building. It is beautiful, functional and durable.
