The individual modules that are combined to form the modular building are built in a controlled factory setting or rather of the construction site. Modular building construction includes the interior and the exterior finishes. On completion, the modules are then delivered to the site where they are pieced together to form a finished building. 90% of the construction of a modular building is completed off the site. While the off-site process is taking place, the ground preparation of the building on-site is usually taking place as well. What saves time in the construction of a modular building is the overlap of the on-site preparations and off-site building.
Using the traditional method of constructing a building, the entire construction has to take place step by step starting by the site preparation and later begin the building construction. The on-site activities carried out during modular building construction include excavation, site drainage, grading, construction of the foundation, and utility installation.

Since modular buildings can either be permanent or temporary, it is advisable to be aware of the different foundations available. The on-grade foundation is specifically designed for the permanent modular buildings while the raised foundations can fit well for both the permanent and temporary modular buildings. Whether it is for commercial or personal use, modular buildings have proved to be efficient as well as money and time-saving.
After the transportation of the modules to the on-site building, a crane is used to place the modules on the prepared foundation. The modules are placed based on the design of the final project. After stacking the modules, the individual building components are seamed together including the exterior additions.
