Reducing Capital Costs for the Future

Modular Design Transforming Medical Office Buildings

A "Kit of Parts"

A confidential leading health provider is currently working with ModularDesign+ to design and create a modular medical office building (MOB) to implement system-wide. This effort looks at every component, element and space of a new MOB model and then defines how it will be standardized and created via a supply- chain approach that leverages national partnerships, a “kit of parts,” and design and production guidelines. The goals for this project are bold:

  • Eliminate 6-9 months of project delivery timeline from a standard three-year project delivery schedule
  • Reduce design costs due to streamlined deployment and achieve guaranteed $/SF on all projects
  • Drive preconstruction costs down to 2% of total construction cost (a 50% reduction from current metrics)
  • Define “guard rails” with respect to modular design that establishes elements that are fixed, flexible, contextually customizable, etc.
  • Achieve EUI target of 35 for all MOB project delivered. This would represent up to 50% reduction from current state.

This effort responds to data that indicated total costs of MOB were increasing 12% annually and significantly reduces capital costs into the future.
