At BlueSky Modular Buildings, nothing makes us prouder than delivering your new modular building on time and budget. These are certainly challenging times though, with several pressures facing the industry that we thought we would discuss in this blog.

To meet the current challenges, we will be ordering in advance, increasing stock holdings, and substituting for higher grade materials at no extra costs where needed.

You can have confidence that we have taken every possible step to continue delivering the same high-quality buildings as always.

Supply and Demand

The demand for materials overall has increased. Globally, as economies recover from Covid-19 many construction industry based stimulus packages have been announced. There is a huge construction boom happening on a global scale. This places pressure on manufacturers and suppliers. Naturally, there have also been some price rises as a result of constrained supply and higher than average demand.

Timber Shortages Affecting Steel Supplies

As a modular building company, our primary material is steel. However, more traditional construction projects are required to switch to steel frames when they can’t access timber frames and trusses. The increased demand globally, blockage of the Suez Canal and other factors have continued to put pressure of timber supplies.

What We Are Doing

We have a solid reputation with our suppliers and have been working with them closely. Our stock controllers are regularly monitoring the situation, and are placing advance orders as necessary. Whilst our relationships help to improve access to supply, we also have backup suppliers in the event of a temporary supply problem.

We have also identified alternate material grades and options that enable us to switch if required. Alternate materials include upgraded Colourbond Steel to replace the standard product.

The current situation demands careful planning – and our team meets regularly to ensure that we have the supplies we need to meet all orders. We have also increased our stock on hand quantities to act as a buffer.

We will be upgrading materials at no extra charge when required to ensure that your project is completed on time, and on budget as promised.

Price Stability

Whilst we do our best to minimise the impact on our clients, it is important to know that materials such as steel makes up only a percentage of a build. This offers a level of insulation against the price rises, for example, a 15% price increase on steel will not increase the total cost of a modular building by 15%. Between our close supplier relationships, price rise absorption, and the fractional portion of costs allocated to steel, the net effect of any price rises on our customers is minimised.

You can be assured that we will continue to do our best to minimise any impacts these current challenges have on our clients.
