Mechanical, electrical and process systems as well as internal architectural fit-out was fully complete in Modubuild’s factory, which meant the building was ready to roll out soon as the site foundations were ready. Modubuild transported the building to site in large Modules and re-assembled the entire two story building at the clients site in nine days leaving the facility ready for utility connections, hookups and commissioning.
