JL Modular (JLM) specializes in both permanent and relocatable modular building projects throughout California. Our permanent modular construction techniques combine the form and function of traditional site-built construction with the speed and cost efficiency of the modular construction process. Permanent modular construction projects that JLM specializes in include:
JL Modular’s high-quality construction has a life span that far surpasses the typical modular construction the industry has to offer. JLM’s design-build experience, project management, and dedicated professionalism show in every modular building we construct.
As a general contractor and a modular manufacturer, JL Modular staff are able to respond with greater flexibility to your specific needs and provide all-inclusive construction services with both raised floor and slab-on-grade floor designs.
Modular construction offers an alternate, often quicker-to-build construction solution that can reduce building costs and environmental footprint. With modular and prefabricated systems, you save with:
Other factors include reduced jobsite and neighborhood disturbance from construction, reduced traffic from workers and safer working conditions out of inclement weather.
For projects requiring on-site delivery of at least 90%, JL Modular builds the building in sections and transports to the site and installs it to the foundations using a crane. All work is done in the factory except for connections and utilities and any necessary plastering. Because the units are built in a controlled environment, the same trained staff can repetitively build the same sections consistently and efficiently.
The JLM team has worked on many K-12 schools and is both cognizant and adept at planning for and resolving issues that may arise during a construction project on campuses of occupied schools. We will lay out our construction parking, trailers, and lay down area and material storage in a manner that is completely contained and/or fenced in and secured from students, while encroaching as little as possible upon the school’s day-to-day activities. We are also mindful of access points to and from the school on a daily basis as well as local fire department regulations — including their required right of way — at all times during the construction process.
The JLM team has also worked on many modular construction projects for multifamily buildings. We perform the majority of the construction at our modular manufacturing facility to save time and expense. We will fabricate the modular sections while simultaneously prepping and building the foundation on-site. Our experienced carpenters and craftsmen build the modular sections under one roof, efficiently using construction material since manufacturing takes place in a controlled factory setting.
