Los Angeles developers are taking note of the Clement Canopy buildings in Singapore. The two 40-story towers are the largest modular construction buildings in the world, and set a new standard of the potential for modular building. In Los Angeles, modular construction has the ability to revolutionize new construction, and the Clement Canopy buildings are a great example of the possibilities.

“Los Angeles is a very expensive market to build in, with rising construction costs,” Aurelie Clereaux, head of modular construction at Bouygues Bâtiment International, the construction company behind the Clement Canopy buildings, tells GlobeSt.com. “Modular solutions can help address the challenge of rising costs and help tackle the issues of labor shortages, as well as the need for fast delivery schedules. Because the construction timelines with modular buildings are shorter, there are also less interruptions to traffic and neighborhoods.”
