We work closely with shippers to understand the regulations. Every city is slightly different. We take a collaborative approach to design, and take all aspects of the project into account from the beginning. We also consider timing — you typically will not transport modules during times of increased traffic.
A benefit of modular builds is that there are much fewer disruptions in the community; instead of hundreds and hundreds of trucks coming to the site during a longer construction period, there are only a few dozen trucks coming to site over a few days of disruption as the modules are brought to the site.
A misconception about modules is that they move slowly down the highway; that’s not true! The loads are moved at highway speeds, with pilot trucks ahead and behind to warn people of the oversized load.
