Modular (or prefabricated) construction is the same as site-built construction, only the work is done in a factory, usually some distance from the jobsite. It must meet the exact same criteria as any sitebuilt and is inspected by independent third party inspectors (usually required to be certified or licensed in the state the project is shipping to.) Quality is usually quite high, and most often complies equal to or better than local inspection.
You can usually order an addition to your exact specifications, however plan on still having considerable work to be done on-site (the foundation, opening existing exterior walls, tying in the new structure to the existing, etc. But as most of the addition has already been built, the time of on-site installation is low, usually a couple of days or so (compared to a couple of weeks for all site-built).
As quality will vary between manufacturers, best to check carefully as to what others say each particular manufacturer. Often the price will vary widely between dealers, so this is one area where a good reputation is needed. (Does he use licensed personnel such as electricians, plumbers or just hire whoever walks in off-the-street)?
All things considered, you could save considerable money by going this route, but I would suggest you also get a couple of site-built bids for comparison.
