All prefab church buildings do not look the same. From time-honored to modern, there are limitless design options that can be customized to your unique specifications. If your congregation is dreaming of a worship center with pitched shingled roof, covered portico, bell tower and skylights, it can be done.  And no one will know it’s a modular building!

Prefab Church Buildings

The website provides resources and information to congregations that want to build economically from scratch or expand a facility it has outgrown. We feature top-rated modular builders and their extensive libraries of modular church plans to help you find an affordable solution.

Modular buildings are no longer just boring, unattractive boxes, and you may be surprised at some of the outstanding designs that can be manufactured today. When it becomes time to replace an aging church that needs too much maintenance, or add a prayer center, choir room, a new chapel, youth center, Sunday school classroom, or expand the worship space for a growing community, modular buildings open up a world of quick and affordable possibilities.

We encourage you to check out the designs by an award-winning national modular builder, like Modular Genius in Joppa, MD. The company designs state-of-the-art prefab church buildings that will honor the values and traditions of your congregation. With facilities throughout the U.S., the buildings are manufactured as near as possible to the customer’s location for greater efficiency and economy.

Advantages of Modular Construction

One of the most significant benefits of using modular construction is that your new worship center can be ready in about half as much time as building it the conventional way. Prefab modules are built in a factory at the same time that grading, foundations, utilities, paving and landscaping is going on at your construction site.

Within just a few months, the modules are transported from the factory to the site with stairwells, utility lines and other systems already in place. They are quickly connected like building blocks and ready for interior and exterior finishing work. Compare this to a stick-built building which could take 18 months or longer to complete.

Of course, another major advantage of building a modular worship center is the low cost. It’s never easy to stay on budget, but factory construction is more precise and energy-efficient compared to conventional construction. Modern state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies and mechanized quality controls prevent waste, and construction is never delayed due to inclement weather. These factors make modular buildings about 20% to 40% less costly than other methods of construction.

Modular structures adhere to the same building standards and occupancy codes as stick-built structures and are equally strong.  Since they have to be transported to the construction site by truck, they are built to withstand wind and bad weather. With proper care and maintenance, prefab church buildings can last 25 to 30 years.

Keep in mind that new modular buildings are also LEED-certified, allowing you to balance cost and environmental concerns.  They are durable, fire-resistant and mold-resistant. If you’re looking for exceptional eco-friendliness, your worship center can be enhanced with energy-efficient utilities, eco-friendly insulation, no-VOC or low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) interior wall and floor treatments, and efficient automatic sensors for lighting and heating systems. As you grow, the structures can move with you or be easily expanded.

If you were thinking that your limited budget would never permit you to build the worship center you want in the conventional way, don’t overlook prefab church buildings. Your congregation can accomplish its goals without sacrificing great quality and a beautiful design.
