Why Choose Professional Building Systems?
Professional Building Systems, Inc. (“PBS”) is a leading manufacturer of modular structures. PBS markets, designs, engineers, manufactures, and services customized modular structures for the multi-family, adult living, hospitality, education, single-family, and the light commercial markets. Established in 2000, PBS offers a wide variety of high-quality, custom-built modular products.
PBS’s sales personnel are knowledgeable and experienced, generally having over 20 years of experience in construction and engineering. PBS’s automated pricing system allows for prompt response to requests for quotes.
PBS’s engineering keeps up with changes in technology, design, and code requirements; and is innovative in finding solutions to builder needs. PBS has designed and built modular products that other modular manufacturing companies could not find a way of designing.
PBS is a leader in new construction technologies, with experience in structural insulated panels (“SIPs”), in solar technologies, and in special open-cell and closed-cell insulations. PBS built the Penn State house for the Modular Decathlon, held in Washington, D.C., where the entrants competed in demonstrating new energy-saving technologies. The house produced more energy (from the sun) than it used (returning a net amount of electrical energy to the grid). PBS is experienced in building sprinkler and air-conditioning systems, doing much of the work ourselves, and coordinating with experts in each area.
PBS has a deserved reputation for producing high-quality structures. These structures are built by a production team that has an average of over 15 years of experience. Our modules are constructed with 30% more lumber than a site-built structure, since they need to travel miles of roads and highways and are lifted by a crane from the transporter onto the foundation.
PBS employs a strict quality control process throughout the production phase of the house. In addition to PBS’s quality control team, the third-party engineering company also makes periodic inspections in the factory to ensure that the modules comply with the approved stamped plans. This inspection and approval by the third-party agency is evidenced by a label placed in each module for observation by the local code inspector.
PBS uses top-quality, brand-name materials. We customize structures with a wide variety of products, as specified by the builder.
PBS continues to stand behind its products and offer superior service, while maintaining a loyal builder base.
