QUALITY PREFAB HOME CONSTRUCTION
ELEMENT+FORM Prefab Factory Built, ….. OK, you’ve heard of them but what are we really talking about? Let us introduce you to the cool exciting world of Factory built Single family homes, Multi-family homes, studios and additions.
First off, factory built homes are engineered and built very similar to site built homes, we use the same materials and much of the construction happens in the same way. However, there are some very distinct differences, and this is where a Factory built home takes it to another level where each project exceeds the highest construction standards. We take great pride in our arduous engineering, strict quality control and quality assurance process to ensure your project is structurally superior in every way possible.
Construction in a controlled environment reduces material waste, limits on-site impact, dust and activity, eliminates theft and construction delays and promotes sustainability. The modular home building process is a more sustainable construction approach than traditional stick-built homes and also provides a more energy efficient building when construction is complete. Modular construction is inherently a green building process that helps increase the sustainability of the home.
– Reduced Building Time
By comparison, building a modular home can cut the time to occupancy by as much as half. The biggest advantage to building a modular home compared to a site-built home is the fact that site preparation and foundation work can take place during the construction process at the factory. While that speeds overall construction time significantly, factory construction also eliminates weather delays to reduce the construction time even more.
– Less Material Waste
With site-built construction comes unnecessary waste. According to constructionwaste.sustainablesources.com 8,000 pounds of material waste from a 2,000 square foot site-built home end up in a landfill. When the construction process takes place in a factory, material can be recycled and reused and materials are never scraped as a result of weather damage.
– Less Impact on the Site
Traditional site-built construction brings noise pollution to a neighborhood, reduces the air quality and increases emissions considerably over the course of the construction project not to mention theft. By building in a factory, where materials can be centrally located, and site-work significantly reduced, building a modular home reduces the environmental impact on the site location.
Whether the home is being built in an urban or remote location, the modular home building process helps limit the construction’s impact on the actual site where the home is going to be located.
– More Energy Efficient Homes
Modular homes are inherently built to be more energy efficient. While added features can improve any homes’ energy efficiency, modular homebuilders can address more specific issues to increase the homes’ efficiency. Modular homes are built with two-by-six framing to increase the amount of insulation that can be placed in the home.
Modular homebuilders can also reduce air infiltration to prevent a loss of heat by increasing the amount of sealant where traditional builders can’t access. Modular homebuilders can provide better seals around electrical outlets and fixtures with better access behind, above and underneath the home’s walls.
Modular construction is inherently a green building process that helps increase the sustainability of the home. Construction in a controlled environment reduces material waste, limits on-site impact and activity and promotes sustainability.
– Flexibility and Customization
ELEMENT+FORM offers the kind of flexibility just not available through most homebuilders. While we do offer a range of predesigned floor plans, each
home we build can be completely customized to meet your lifestyle. And if a predesigned plan just isn’t for you, we can build a completely custom home exactly the way you want it.
