Building Installation and Site Completion Checklist

Now that you’ve taken the necessary steps to develop your construction site, you can start preparing for the installation and occupation of your modular building. Here’s a checklist of the remaining site work you need to do before you can call the project a wrap.


While you developed your construction site, your modular building was being manufactured off site. Once completed, the modules will be transported and delivered to your construction site where they will be positioned onto the pier support system. The delivery and installation process may vary slightly from project to project depending on scale.


Any utilities that have been previously installed should be tested to ensure they are working properly. 

Grading and Flatwork

Final grading should take place for any remaining flatwork that needs to be installed such as sidewalks, driveways and parking lots. 

Interior and Exterior Finishes

The finishes of your project will depend on the use of your modular building and may include things like trim, siding, paint, handicap access points, elevators, stairs, alarm systems, and more.


With your building set on its foundation and flatwork completed, you can restore the construction site, remove debris, plant shrubbery and trees, or lay down sod.

Keep in mind, some or all of the site work that takes place during and after building installation may require additional help from local subcontractors to get the job done. Talk to your construction provider to determine if they provide comprehensive services or if you’ll need to contract out certain jobs.
