Leasing a Modular Building with Advanced Modular Space: How-To

Tags: , , , , , , , , , |


When the future is uncertain and budgets are tight, school boards, companies, hospitals and government are often asking themselves the question, “How do I make space for growing student bodies/temporary or contract workers/ influx of patients when I know that I won’t need the larger capacity forever?”

Going modular is a popular option in cases such as these. When you need flexible contracts and temporary, relocatable and COST-EFFECTIVE modular building solutions, modular construction is the easiest choice to make.

Ask yourself…

How long do I need the unit?
What are my needs versus my wants?
What am I flexible on?
What are my non-negotiables?
If you’ve made the decision to go modular for your needs, Reliant Asset Management has many leasing options available to you.

1. Depending on the needs of your lease, you can choose from several payment options- including monthly, quarterly, bi-annually or annually.

2. Operating Lease — For customers who need a longer rental term and only want to pay for the building while they use it. When you are ready to return the unit, you can either purchase or return the modular unit. RAM can help you determine whether it is more financially beneficial to lease or buy.

3. Lease to purchase — Compared to traditional “lease-to-own” contracts, this one is pretty self-explanatory. If customers meet certain financial criteria, they will own the modular building unit at the end of the term.

4. Municipal Lease — A low interest financing alternative available to municipalities, government, school districts and some charter schools.

When you lease with Advanced Modular Space, all services included in a full purchases are available to you as well- this includes delivery, installation, and site work costs; however, not all costs may be rolled into the contract and some fees may have to be paid up front.

Because of our low interest rates, leasing is affordable, and even with delivery and installation costs, leasing modular buildings avoids amortization fees.

Leasing with RAM means quick approval, competitive rates, and purchase and lease back options. Advanced Modular Space also has ‘pre-leased’ and ‘pre-owned’ buildings which can offer even more savings! Check out our new and used modular inventory here!

New Year, New Modular Building Innovations from Around the World


Advanced Modular Space, Inc. has unmatched access to capital and finance options to get your modular projects up and running as quickly as possible. With over 30 years of combined design and construction experience in modular buildings, we are confident that no matter what scope or size project, AMS delivers the best solution possible.

The future of modular structures in commercial and institutional markets is a fast growing alternative to traditional construction.

Many other countries are looking at modular and seeing it as a solution not only for time and budget in the current setting, but they are also looking at the ‘end use’ of construction and what happens to buildings when they are no longer needed or wanted. With modular construction, when a building is at the end of its life and the structure is no longer desirable for whatever reasons (facade, compliance, etc.), the products can often be disassembled and recycled. One thing that has held back many from using modular is the final design that a building has. Modular construction has come a long way however. Around the world modular construction is becoming popular, with some countries like China pledging to have 30% of their projects building using recycled prefab materials.

The materials in modular building are also greener. Many modular building already incorporate recycled products.

Take for example, the new 142-room hotel being built in Oklahoma City by Hotel Developer NewcrestImage.

The hotel will consist of 81 modules, set to open in May 2017. It will be a total of five stories and according to the CEO, will have rooms and a design that meets and exceeds the stylish, European-inspired looks.

As more and more developers become aware of the benefits of modular construction, the world is beginning to see an uptick in modular development. The UK needs more than a million new homes in the next five years, and is striving to meet that goal via modular building.

Despite the challenges that modular manufacturing is still actively solving, (In November, 461 Dean became the world’s tallest modular building following a series of dramatic setbacks and challenges which ultimately put the ambitious project 10 millions dollars over budget, 2 years behind schedule, and gift wrapped in legal drama galore.) the benefits greatly outweigh the cost. The processes can only get better as more developers push the boundaries of building using prefab units. Developers are realizing that modular doesn’t mean ‘drab and repetitive looks’. In fact, some modular buildings are so beautiful, they’re iconic.

In 2017, modular construction is going to be the new normal. As a society, we desire faster, stronger, and cheaper buildings and traditional construction is losing its ground. Not only does modular construction check off the boxes for faster, stronger, and cheaper, it also checks off many other boxes like less construction traffic, less construction noise, less construction clean up, and a greener start and finish for buildings and communities.

As a developer, you should be seriously considering modular building.
