Modular Vs. Prefab: What's the Difference?
Although the terms ‘modular’ and ‘prefab’ are sometimes used interchangeably, it’s helpful to draw a distinction between them. Any component of a building that is manufactured in a factory before arrival and installation at the building site is prefabricated — or ‘prefab’ for short. Modular construction is a specific type of prefab construction. A building could be made entirely of prefabricated components, such as:
- Roof trusses
- Wall panels
- Floor trusses
- Pre-cast concrete foundation walls and slabs
- Staircases, elevators, etc.
- Bathroom or kitchen modules
- Structural modules
Prefab components can be made of different materials, including wood, steel, and concrete. Some of these components can be more or less finished before being transported to the site and installed. For example, wall panels could be ‘open’ — arriving on-site without insulation, vapor control layers, or external cladding. Or they could arrive at the building site complete with insulation, vapor control, windows, doors, electrical wiring, ducting, and cladding.
Modules are a specific kind of prefab component that enclose space — such as an entire room. This contrasts with ‘flat’ prefab components like wall panels and roof trusses that don’t enclose space. Because they enclose space, modules are also referred to as 3D or volumetric. Entire modules are built in a factory and then delivered to the site for installation.
