Modular Buildings Made for Iowa

Built to Last in Iowa

Mobile Modular's buildings are designed to endure the diverse weather conditions of Iowa. Constructed on robust steel frames with the option of wood or steel studs, our modular spaces are built to last. These structures are also equipped with heating and air conditioning, ensuring a comfortable environment regardless of the season.

Rural & Urban Modular Buildings

Roughly 64% of Iowa’s population lives in the state’s 953 square miles of urban land areas. The remaining nearly 55,000 square miles is rural farmland and natural areas. Modular construction can be used in urban areas, providing space near cities and amenities, or in rural areas where traditional construction is more challenging to complete. Mobile Modular offers versatile construction solutions for both urban and rural areas of Iowa.

Quick-Deploy Buildings for Disaster Response

Tornadoes, snowstorms, and derechos are among the natural disasters that impact Iowa. In particular, the derecho and tornado outbreak of 2021 was a significant event for the state. In the face of such calamities, modular buildings play a crucial role. Mobile Modular offers comprehensive modular building solutions. These structures can provide essential facilities such as workforce housing for first responders, medical facilities, temporary classrooms, showers, restrooms, and dining halls. Mobile Modular's offerings are versatile, catering to various needs, including education, commercial, construction, and healthcare sectors.

When considering modular construction, it is important to understand your state’s specific licensing requirements and regulations. Factory-built structures, including modular buildings, are subject to provisions of the Iowa State Building Code.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the difference between used, leased, and rented modular buildings in Iowa?

Mobile Modular offers buildings for both lease and purchase. Leased modular buildings are temporary and must be returned at a predetermined date, making them suitable for shorter-term needs. Purchasing modular buildings in Iowa provides a permanent solution, while our rent-to-own option allows for gradual ownership transition, catering to businesses seeking flexibility in Iowa’s market.

What’s the difference between portable, prefabricated, and modular buildings in Iowa?

In Iowa, it's essential to differentiate between portable, prefabricated, and modular buildings. Portable buildings are designed for easy mobility and self-contained functionality, making them ideal for various temporary needs. Prefabricated buildings are constructed off-site in a controlled factory environment, reducing weather-related delays and site costs, which is especially advantageous in Iowa’s variable climate.

Modular buildings in Iowa are akin to prefabricated structures but are typically assembled in larger modules, allowing for almost complete construction off-site. They can be efficiently transported and adhered to concrete or ABS pad foundations, making them versatile and suitable for a range of Iowa applications.

What is a modular trailer in Iowa?

A modular trailer in Iowa is a pre-built temporary structure suitable for various short-term purposes, such as on construction sites as offices. These modular trailers are specifically designed for flexibility and rapid deployment, catering to the unique space needs of Iowa, especially in industries like construction where mobility and quick setup are essential.
