We’re also in the business of changing minds.
At NRB, we think of ‘modular building’ as a process rather than a product. It’s an alternative project delivery method that begins by producing a customized building off site under controlled conditions, then transports it to the site location in three-dimensional modules, and installs it on the foundation. Your building meets all the required building codes and standards with the same building science, architectural appeal and operational requirements you would find in traditional construction. Building off site is also a more sustainable process that inherently results in waste avoidance upstream and reduced site disruption and disturbance. Without question though, the most sought after outcome of this process is the reduced construction schedule—your doors can open as much as 50 per cent sooner than building the conventional way.

Let’s build together.
From concept to completion, our experienced team of professionals work collaboratively with you to get your project started on the right path during the design and pre-construction phase our team then takes through project construction and site installation to ensure you receive precisely what you need, when you need it, all for the cost you were expecting to pay. Whether your project is in Canada or the U.S., you will get best in class buildings with the permanence and performance of conventional construction, guaranteed.
We are an experienced builder
We have been providing customized building solutions in Canada since 1979 and in the US since 2003 so it’s safe to say, we are in it for the long haul. We’ve worked together with forward-thinking owners and architects creating impressive buildings that can range from a 50 sq.ft. customs security booth at a busy border crossing, to a 50,000 sq.ft multi-story school in an urban community. We produce a wide range of commercial building “product” applications such as equipment enclosures, in-plant buildings, kiosks and relocatable classrooms and complexes – and we are experts in permanent modular construction (PMC), one of the fastest growing trends in commercial construction today

NRB receives honors each year at the Modular Building Institute’s Awards of Distinction event. Hundreds of submitted building entries are reviewed by a panel of independent judges for architectural excellence, technical innovation, sustainability and cost effectiveness. We’re always proud to be acknowledged for innovative projects but we’re even prouder to share the awards with our clients, our employees, our suppliers and our design and construction partners!
