Prefabricated buildings and structures are mounted from uniform prefabricated three-dimensional units, providing strength, preset thermal properties of structures, dynamic stability, immutability of geometric dimensions of the prefabricated elements during their manufacture, transportation, and installation in special and difficult conditions. A three-dimensional unit is a combined system, comprehensively elaborated by technologists, designers, and constructors, the parameters of which are optimized in terms of manufacturability, transportation, installation, dismantling, convenience, and safety of the buildings. The multi-factor model of the system was built under the condition of minimizing the reduced costs, labor input, transportation, and erection of buildings. Methods of projects monitoring are linked to the analysis of transport schemes of delivery and installation of modules with the choice of parameters of the jib crane at erection of transformable buildings. The options of transport schemes (road, rail, water - ferry, air - helicopter and airship) have also been considered. The choice of transportation means is defined by the range of transportation and estimated relative values of the labor input, the cost and duration of transportation and installation of modules.
