The prefabrication of multifamily buildings is still in its infancy in the United States. Most of the prefabricated multifamily buildings consist of wood-framed units that evolved from the products made by the manufacturers of single-family, mobile, and modular homes. Until recently, few steel modular experiments were undertaken. A Seattle company, Blokable, built its first steel units at its factory in Vancouver, Washington, for a 24-unit project in Edmunds, Washington. The preference toward the manufactured home solutions in the United states has been witnessing continuous growth, as this serves as the cost-effective alternative for conventional constructions methods. This increasing preference is increasing the demand for manufactured homes resulting in an increase in price in the country and modular housing.

Key Market Trends
The Trend of BIM in the Prefab Sector

On similar lines, with modular construction, only 21% of non-BIM users cite cost-performance improvement whereas 46% of the BIM users report cost-performance improvement. An increase in project quality, a decrease in the construction costs, and improvement in the project schedule performance are the three main benefits of using BIM. The use of BIM is increasingly seen common in commercial and institutional projects in the USA.
