Modular church buildings are becoming more and more common today. The main reason behind this jump in popularity has to do with economics. It costs a lot of money to construct a church building the old fashioned way, with wood, stone, bricks, and cement. Usually, when a new church building is needed, parishioners are asked to make donations to help cover the costs of such a large project.
For obvious reasons, this makes it difficult to come up with the money. Modular buildings are a great alternative to this age-old problem. They cost a fraction of the price a traditional building would cost, with labor and materials. In addition, modular church buildings can be erected in a fraction of the time as well, meaning parishioners will have a permanent place to worship in a short amount of time.
Another great benefit to prefabricated buildings is that they are easily expandable. If the need arises to increase the square footage of the church, modules simply need to be added. This does not take a lot of time to do, and it is minimally disruptive to the building during construction. This is great news for churches with a growing number of parishioners.
Modular steel buildings will also require less maintenance than traditional buildings because steel resists corrosion from the elements better than any other material. Rust is not a problem, and you don’t have to worry about steel bending, peeling, cracking, warping, or collapsing. This means that steel buildings are also safer, as they will not succumb to the forces of wind or natural disasters like wood or brick buildings do.
