Imagine building single family homes – in rural or urban settings – faster and with fewer headaches. Imagine simplifying the way you build by simplifying the way your projects are planned, sourced and delivered; reducing your risks related to financing, insurance, subcontractors and weather-related issues; and freeing yourself from managing your build sites so you can spend more time managing other aspects of your business.
Our Manufacturer’s modular construction solution makes it all possible – opening up a world of opportunity by allowing you to build high-quality homes in less time, with fewer risks and fewer headaches.
WHAT IS MODULAR CONSTRUCTION
For decades, builders have been improving and shortening the construction process by incorporating factory assembled components like pre-hung doors, cabinet modules and roof trusses. Modern modular construction, with Morgan Homes, is just an extension of this evolution.
Our Manufacturer assembles larger components (known as ‘modules’) in a manufacturing facility utilizing the same materials and construction codes used in the traditional-built construction process, but with all the benefits of a controlled manufacturing environment and improved quality control systems.
Once the modules are completed, they are carefully transported to your construction site, and then quickly and easily assembled on your foundation. The result is a home that’s well on its way to completion within 48 hours of arriving at your site.
ADVANTAGES OF MODULAR CONSTRUCTION
- Speed of construction/faster return on investment. Modular construction allows for the building and the site work to be completed simultaneously, reducing the overall completion schedule by as much as 50%.
- Indoor construction. Assembly is independent of weather, which increases work efficiency and avoids damaged building material.
- Favorable pricing from suppliers. Large-scale manufacturers can effectively bargain with suppliers for discounts on materials.
- Ability to service remote locations. Particularly in countries in which potential markets may be located far from industrial centers, such as Canada, there can be much higher costs to build a site-built house in a remote area or an area experiencing a construction boom such as mining towns. Modular homes can be built in major towns and sold to regional areas.
- Low waste. With the same plans being constantly built, the manufacturer has records of exactly what quantity of materials are required for a given job. While waste from a site-built dwelling may typically fill several large dumpsters, construction of a modular dwelling generates much less waste, reducing overall cost.
- Environmentally friendly construction process. Modular construction reduces waste and site disturbance compared to site-built structures.
- Flexibility. Conventional buildings can be difficult to extend, however with a modular building you can simply add sections, or even entire floors.
- Healthier. Because modular homes are built in a factory, the materials are stored indoors in a controlled environment, eliminating the risk of mold, mildew, rust, and sun damage that can often lead to human respiratory problems. Traditional site-built homes are always at risk from these threats.
