modular systems

Modular homes are the ultimate prefabricated building system. These highly customisable, environmentally-friendly homes are built almost entirely in a factory setting, saving both homeowners and builders time, effort and money. Each home is designed and constructed to meet all building codes.

Eco-Friendly
Modular homes are green by their very nature. Assembly in an enclosed indoor environment allows them to fulfil key components of green building certifications. Going modular means that material waste is reduced at both the factory and the job site. As a result, the environmental impact on the land and the community where the house is being delivered is lessened. Modular homes are often more tightly built and thus more energy efficient, which can result in lower heating and cooling costs for the home owner

Saves Money, Saves Time
Designed and constructed to meet or exceed local building codes and allowing nearly 90% of a home to be constructed offsite, a highly customisable home can be built in a controlled factory environment while the building site is simultaneously being prepped. Most work is done in the factory, so weather delays, missing materials and subcontractor no-shows are all but eliminated, saving time and money. Building modular homes save time and money, allowing the builder to focus on generating sales and other revenue sources.

Quality Construction
Constructing homes in a factory setting allows for more consistent quality due to uniform construction processes, training techniques and inspections. All homes are inspected by an independent, third-party home inspection agency before leaving the factory. Once on site, they are again inspected, this time by a local building inspector. These homes meet and often exceed all requirements of locally adopted building and fire codes.

Flexible Design
While most manufacturers have a portfolio of home plans to choose from, computer-assisted design (CAD) allows limitless design and customisation possibilities when planning a new modular home. Modular construction allows for a quick turnaround between groundbreaking and occupancy. A typical modular house can be move-in ready in about four months. And more often than not, the finished product is indistinguishable from a site-built home.
