Modern. Faster. More Efficient.
Volumetric Modular Housing
Streamlined Production with Less Waste
When housing needs demand a faster solution, modular housing outperforms all other construction methods. Modular construction methods are revolutionizing the housing market. They allow for greater control of the construction process, save time and money, and provide
a reasonable, attainable price point for home buyers, as well as families looking for homes to rent.
Build in Less Than Half the Time
With the streamlined modular manufacturing process, housing can be built in half the time – or less – of homes constructed using traditional techniques. Repeatable production and assembly methods are combined with economies of scale to produce dozens of kitchens, bathrooms and living spaces constructed with the same appliances, countertops, flooring, lighting and more. This translates to faster housing solutions and lower costs.
Building homes indoors means:
- An efficient production process
- Fewer delays from tradesmen
- No weather delays
- Virtually no chance of theft of construction materials
- Greater supply chain efficiencies
- Higher quality construction built to or exceeding construction codes
Beating the Rising Costs of Construction
Rising construction and material costs make modular construction essential in the marketplace. Skyrocketing labor costs, fueled by a shortage of skilled workers and a dwindling labor force, are increasing costs of traditional construction. Modular construction relies less on a skilled
labor force. When combined with economies in the purchase and efficient use of construction materials, the result is a finished product with reduced and more predictable costs than traditional on-site construction.
Building with Less Waste
Waste that often occurs on site during the traditional construction process is eliminated, including materials damaged through exposure to the elements. Efficiencies are accomplished through the expert design and engineering of a manufacturing production process, combined with quality controls that result in less waste.
According to a December 2020 update to a 2018 Environmental Protection Agency fact sheet, residential construction produces more than 188 million tons of waste each year. The Whole Building Design Guide (www.wbdg.org) states that the average home constructed with traditional on-site building techniques generates up to five pounds of jobsite waste per square foot – an astonishing 6,000 to 10,000 pounds of waste for a 2,000-square-foot home! For a factory-built modular home there is roughly enough jobsite waste to fill a 55-gallon trash can. The result is lower construction costs and greater environmental efficiencies, for a smaller carbon footprint.
