Modular construction is a process in which a building is constructed off-site, under controlled plant conditions, using the same materials and designing to the same codes and standards as conventionally built homes – but in about half the time. Buildings are produced in “modules” that when put together on site, reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built facility – without compromise.

Benefits of Modular Construction

  • Structurally superior, each modules is transported up to 500 miles, going 65miles per hour creating hurricane conditions, picked up with a crane at two points being set the sheetrock has minimal cracks
  • Better construction quality since built in a factory with strong quality control
  • Reduced construction time
  • Strong purchasing power for products

Risks of Modular Construction

  • Limited choice in fixtures
  • Not all designs can be built cost effectively with modular construction
  • What you eliminate from their package does not equal what it will cost to purchase what you want
  • If foundation is not perfect it will cause issues
  • Certain sites are not workable with modulars

How to make it qualify for Energy Star

  • Rigid insulation on the exterior to stop thermal bridging
  • Blown in insulation on the interior cavities of the exterior walls
  • ICF or SIPS foundation
  • Increase U value of windows
