Modular Medical Buildings

On one end of the spectrum, it’s possible to build an entire hospital using modular construction — complete with emergency room, specialist departments, and inpatient wards. On the other end of the spectrum, it’s also possible to add a single modified shipping container to an existing healthcare building, or to add a prefabricated entry vestibule. And of course there are modular projects of every size in between. Modular construction is suitable for both permanent and relocatable healthcare space.

Healthcare facilities often have special requirements, such as vibration-resistant flooring (for imaging), badge entry and other security systems, high load capacity floors for heavy medical equipment, acoustical ceilings, specialized HVAC and air filtration systems, medical gas equipment, and so on. Offsite construction is a good choice for manufacturing the high-tech space that healthcare facilities often need.

One way to compete is to build high-quality accommodation faster than your competitors. Speed and quality are areas in which modular construction excels. If you can build faster, you can welcome residents to your assisted living facility sooner — and see a quicker return on your investment.

Modular Medical Buildings

Modular construction is a type of prefabrication, which takes place inside an indoor facility, away from the final site of the building. Manufacturing a building in a factory allows for precision construction — and it also means that the building materials are protected from the weather at all times. Depending on the requirements of a particular project, each module can be completely finished at the factory, leaving only installation and connecting to happen on-site.

Modular construction can start with using shipping containers as the frame for a space, and modifying them as necessary. Or the frame for each module can be built from scratch.

Whichever way they start, once they’re finished, the modules are wrapped in protective material and transported (usually by road, but possibly also by rail or sea) to the site. For a large, multi-module building, the modules will be lifted by crane from the truck and stacked onto the already-prepared foundation. They’re connected to one another and hooked up to local utilities.

A smaller building — such as a modular medical clinic that consists of just one converted shipping container — may not require the use of a crane. A self-offloading trailer or a mechanical lift might be sufficient.

The manufacture of the modules can start while the site is prepared and the foundation is built. Unlike with conventional construction, it’s not necessary to wait for the foundation to be ready before starting the construction of the building! This overlap of processes means that modular construction is much faster than conventional construction.

Why Choose Modular Medical Buildings? What Are The Benefits?


Modular construction results in high quality buildings. Because modules are built indoors, none of the building materials can be damaged by the weather. Working in an indoor facility also lends itself to precision manufacturing, resulting in tighter building envelopes and straighter walls. (Installing medical equipment in a building can be difficult when the walls aren’t straight or the corners aren’t square!) There’s also less risk of damage to buildings and equipment if the fixtures are installed in the factory, rather than by tradespeople on-site.


Because manufacturing modules happens at the same time as the site is being prepared and the foundation is being built, modular construction is significantly faster than with conventional construction. This means that patients can start attending your new modular clinic or other healthcare facility sooner, and your return on investment is quicker.

Reliable Timeline

Not only is modular construction faster than conventional construction, it’s also more reliable. There are no weather delays in the factory! Also, all construction materials are ordered in advance. This means we know we have everything we’ll need for the whole project. There are no last-minute expeditions to Home Depot because of running out of something. (This also means there’s greater cost certainty on a modular project.)

Less Disruption

Having most of the building construction happen indoors means that there’s less disruption to traffic and pedestrians around your site. This is especially important for additions to existing healthcare facilities because it means less disturbance for patients using those facilities.


You may choose a portable medical building. For example, a portable medical clinic for vaccinations or breast cancer screenings could serve different rural communities at different times.

What’s The Process For Creating Prefabricated Healthcare Facilities?

Modular construction is very versatile, and your senior living facility is fully customizable. We’ll talk with you about your goals and budget for your facility and walk you through the various options.

Although it’s possible to convert a conventional construction design, to reap the full benefits of modular construction, it’s important to design for modular construction right from the beginning. Not all architects fully understand modular construction and many have little to no experience designing for it. Our team of architectural designers is experienced working with modular construction.

Modular construction is ideal for both apartment-style senior housing and also for a ‘village’ of individual, detached modular homes for seniors. For example, individual senior living modular homes could be arranged around a central garden area or around a communal building for meals or activities.

Together, we’ll discuss the choices for your assisted living floor plan, possible home sizes, communal spaces such as dining rooms and activity rooms, insulation, fire and safety elements, cladding, ADA-compliant features, and so on.

Once our team has completed your senior housing building plans, we’ll get started on manufacturing the modules for your facility!

We’re happy to provide advice about transportation logistics and on-site work.

What Are The Applications For Medical Modular Buildings?

The different types of modular buildings for healthcare purposes are virtually endless. Here’s a list of a few possibilities:

  • Addition to an existing medical building
  • General practice office
  • Dental office
  • Administration office
  • Specialist outpatient clinic
  • Mental health clinic
  • Laboratory
  • Dialysis center
  • Rehab or physical therapy center
  • Emergency room
  • Diagnostic facility
  • MRI or other imaging unit
  • Pharmacy
  • Wellness center
  • Hospital gift shop
  • Waiting room or lavatory facility

A modular medical office building could be a one-story structure in a spacious rural setting; a modular hospital could be a high rise building in a dense urban area. Modular construction is very versatile. In particular, steel modular construction isn’t any more limited than conventional steel construction with respect to the height or medical capacity of the structure.
