For years, modular construction has mostly eluded the senior housing industry—despite its perceived ability to deliver projects more quickly and at a lesser cost than traditional construction methods. Now, a manufacturing company with deep industry roots hopes to make modular construction in senior housing the norm. Chicago-based Skender recently announced plans to open a new Skender Manufacturing facility that will assemble modular building parts for senior housing, multifamily, health care and other commercial buildings in the Windy City. Manufacturing will begin as soon as this November.
