LODESTAR Architectural and Design Features
LODESTAR MBU’s provide designers and architects an extended platform to create unique and custom design options. MBU’s can be used as the infrastructure around which they can design traditional designs, or specific characteristics can remain exposed to achieve custom and unique features. LODESTAR MBU features can remain exposed to provide a transition from internal building features to external features of pools, driveways, retaining walls, etc.
LODESTAR MBU’s are prebuilt offsite and can be scheduled for delivery to construction sites as required. For large projects MBU’s can be staged at the construction site and used on demand, the identical modular nature allows the MBU’s to be deploying without the need to use specific modules. MBU’s can be rapidly placed into position, reducing the framing time by as much as 90%. Each MBU provides framing and roofing features, reducing additional steps, and allowing an accelerated enclosure and finishing schedule. Building with LODESTAR MBU’s can reduce construction projects by up to 50%.
LODESTAR MBU’s provide the primary framework of the building, reducing the need for most of the framing and roofing crews. Fewer subcontractors are needed in this type of construction, lowering labor costs, and increasing productivity with a smaller labor force. Combining modular building material further reduces the labour requirements while further expediting the construction process.
