so many reasons...

Why an Advanced Modular System™?

Cost Effective

Significant efficiencies are achieved by choosing modular construction based on typically removing 80% plus of the construction activity from the site and into a controlled indoor manufacturing process. Your project will achieve a reduction in expensive on site labour, optimization of material usage, reduction in site theft, reduction in inclement weather expenses and improved site safety.

Schedule Savings

Since module manufacturing can occur simultaneously with site development and foundation works, projects typically can be completed 30% to 50% sooner than conventional construction. With the majority of the construction completed inside a controlled factory environment, modular construction mitigates the risk of weather delays. Simply put, buildings are occupied sooner, creating a faster return on investment.


Ladacor has the ability to offer a full turn-key, design-build project – from concept development to engineering design to module fabrication to site construction – or any scope of work in between.


As owners and designers we have confidence in the choice of Ladacor’s Advanced Modular System™ for environmental sustainability. From repurposing surplus shipping containers to reduced construction waste by recycling materials, controlling inventory and protecting building materials to improved quality management throughout the construction process to significantly less on-site activity and disturbance.


Advanced Modular Systems™ are more durable and stronger than typical conventional construction. This is because each module, made of a rigid steel core, is engineered to independently withstand the rigors and loads imposed during transportation and craning. That inherently high individual module strength contributes further to the project once the modules are assembled and interconnected on the project site.


Advanced Modular Systems™ can be disassembled and the modules relocated or repurposed for new project use, increasing the end of project salvage value, reducing the demand for raw materials and minimizing the amount of energy expended to create a new building.


Advanced Modular Systems™ are constructed off site in Ladacor’s Calgary, Alberta indoor manufacturing facility, under controlled conditions, using the same materials and designed to the same standards as conventionally constructed buildings. Buildings are produced in rail, truck or ship transportable modules that are simply assembled on site.

Certified Quality

Ladacor implements a rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program that ensures the highest quality standards are continually achieved. Our QC/QA program is regularly third-party audited with respect to CSA-A277 Rated Modular Buildings and CWB standards. Advanced Modular Systems™ are certified by Intertek as CSA-A277 standard compliant.

Customized Design

Advanced Modular Systems™ are built with the same materials and architectural specifications as conventional construction. They can be supplied in varying fits and finishes – both interior and exterior – your project is built to order from the bottom up with your unique design and needs. Once assembled on site, they can be virtually indistinguishable from their conventional site-constructed buildings.


Advanced Modular Systems™ can accommodate all the fits, finishings and amenities you would want and expect from a modern conventional building.


Due to the versatility of the Advanced Modular System™ module elements, your project maintains flexibility in design while being optimized to benefit from the efficiencies realized using the modular construction technique.


The Advanced Modular System™ is scalable and expandable. The very nature of our modular approach allows for staging, phasing in and future expansion of projects.
