Abstract Construction industry pays attention to modular construction recently which based on factory production not on labor intensive site production. Since modular construction has high time shortening effect and easiness of demolition and recycling, it has been applied to the temporary residential building. Domestic modular construction market are not activated yet, however, due to the high initial cost to realize modular construction. This study proposes demandsensitized movable modular building in order to reduce the financial burden. The study compares between RC method building and Modular building which moves building when the demand falls off from Life-Cycle Cost’s viewpoint. As a result of the economical evaluation, RC method achieved profits faster than Modular model, but Modular model’s gross earnings during the life-cycle are much bigger than RC method. In other words, the result means that the marketsensitized movement of the modular building would be an economci choice in Life-Cycle Costing aspect.
