Modular cleanrooms offer built-in life-cycle advantages. An axiom of green design is that it’s more sustainable to reuse an existing building – which represents a considerable amount of “embodied” energy – than to build a new one. Often (not always), renovation is a greener choice than new construction.
As concern about climate change is added to concern for the bottom line – with a growing likelihood for regulatory pressure – owners will increasingly prioritize sustainability. Modular structures can be a key tool for creating controlled environments that are not just clean, but also green.
