Utilizing Temporary Modular Buildings for Disaster Relief: How It Works

Natural disasters happen. They are usually scary, sometimes dangerous, and we almost always think they won’t happen to us. But what happens when they do?

Ignoring them might be your short-term solution, but it’s best to put a little thought into what you’ll do if a natural disaster happens at your place of business.

Putting a plan together includes not only a safety kit and having supplies in case of an emergency, but also how you will handle what needs to be done after the dust settles.

Putting together a Business Continuity Plan or Disaster Recovery Plan doesn’t have to be hard. Here are 2 things to consider if you experience damage after a natural disaster.

Rebuilding

If you’ve determined that rebuilding is in your future, consider modular construction.

Utilizing modular buildings for disaster relief gets you back up and running up to 35% faster over stick-built construction. This is due to the fact that your building is built in a factory and delivered to your location while the site is being prepared with foundations and utilities. Once site-work is completed, your building is assembled using our modular construction process. No need to wait for materials to arrive or delays due to weather.

Because your building is constructed in a factory, there is less material waste. There is tighter inventory control and protection for building materials from weather deterioration, ultimately saving you money. Your business is also up and running up to 35% sooner, meaning you open your doors back up for customers that much faster.

Satellite Shelters, Inc. combines building design and construction into one hassle-free solution to solve your space needs. For more information on our design/build process, visit our website at https://www.satelliteco.com/products/modular-building-design/.
