Kuvella Modular Designs and Z Modular Announce Partnership

Kuvella Modular Designs, a leader in sustainable modular construction, and Z Modular, a division of Zekelman Industries and leader in modular steel construction, today announced an alliance between the two companies to streamline the modular construction process and broaden availability of their products throughout North America.

Z Modular’s proprietary Vectorbloc steel modular construction systems, provides extremely tight tolerances and ensures even stacking of modules. It's also flexible, allowing for the design of virtually any type of building. 

Coupled with Kuvella Modular Designs' commitment to sustainable and energy efficient construction, this partnership will greatly reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment while creating jobs across America.

Modular construction has seen a rise in popularity in recent years due to advantages that include reduced construction costs, more reliable and faster on-average project schedules, and decreased maintenance costs for building owners. With the labor shortage and associated rising labor costs driving construction project budgets sky-high across the United States, modular construction has found a place in the spotlight as an affordable and sophisticated method of construction.

Expanding modular construction offerings into major cities across North America can help attract a younger workforce to the industry, creating positions for highly skilled tradespeople to fit out modules, too. For urban cities struggling to meet increasing demands for affordable housing as well as commitments to sustainable initiatives, modular design is an attractive option offering solutions to both.
