Modular Buildings, How wide is too wide?

Modular Buildings are a great way to save money and time by fabricating your building 90% complete in the factory. One thing that WILL drive up the cost of your modular building is designing a building that is too wide, or too tall, or too long to meet the state DOT regulations. When you are working with your preconstruction design team make sure you do not spend additional $$'s on oversize road escorts and DOT re-routing.
Tips to ask your modular building company:
1. How wide can my modular building be before we pay extra fees?
2. How tall can my modular building be before we pay extra fees?
3. How long can my modular building be before we pay extra fees?

Generally speaking in the industry you will find 12' (wide) x 60' (long) modular sections. Each state is different and will allow growth without adding too much expense to your project.
Why get a larger section? If you can fit more space into fewer transport loads, this will sometimes save you money. The catch is.....to make sure you did not increase your freight costs substantially by adding too much width/height/length.

An experienced design team will help you stay out of trouble, and always find you the best solution and best value.
