Impact Housing Addresses a National Shortage of Affordable Housing
The Modular Solution for Affordable Housing
Among the most pressing social needs in the country today is construction of attainable housing close to where people work and want to live. Impact Housing, as a premier manufacturer of volumetric modular housing, is addressing these needs with new construction options that fill the gap for quality, attractive and affordable homes.
The 2021 study, Housing is Critical Infrastructure: Social and Economic Benefits of Building More Housing,* The U.S. housing shortage is estimated at between 5 million to 6.8 million housing units (including single-family homes, townhouses, condos and rental units). Decades of underbuilding and aging housing have resulted in historically low inventory, hitting first-time buyers and those needing affordable housing the hardest.
Modular construction is a trustworthy alternative for builders and developers who need to deliver a cost-effective, reliable solution for the current housing shortage. Modular construction offers a consistent, practicable process for managing the costs of new home construction, allowing developers and builders to fast-track projects and deliver reasonably priced housing in areas where it is needed most.
Builder/Developer: Our streamlined construction process means reduced labor requirements and efficient materials management, making it easier to deliver quality homes faster and at lower costs than site-built homes.
Housing Authorities: Impact Housing can help you meet the challenges of affordable housing. Modular construction allows you to address the imminent needs of your community.
City Planners: Modular housing provides excellent options for city living. Compact, energy-efficient homes are ideally suited for city neighborhoods, providing affordable, close-in living options.
Non-profits: Modular construction offers efficiencies that can't be found with traditional on-site construction. The factory construction process also eliminates weather-related delays, helping to keep projects for much-needed housing on schedule.
