is Off-Site Constructed Homes
the builder/developer seeking a sound opportunity to develop housing
of high quality at competitive cost, today's OFF-SITE construction
technology offers multiple benefits over alternative building methods.
the major benefits of OFF-SITE construction are:
First, and the most evident is, the efficient shortening of
the start-up to completion time from the typical eight to ten months
to as little as sixty days, - a net savings of up to six months. This
time savings translates into substantial reductions in initial investment
capital and financing charges.
subcontractors and their scheduling problems which often result in
delays and/or cost over runs are kept to a minimum since 90 percent
of the construction takes place at a centralized engineering and production
facility where technical and senior supervision is always present and
highly skilled labor remains on staff.
Third, the quality of the construction is superior due to the
availability of advanced specialized equipment custom designed to insure
that each project is completed exactly as detailed by the architectural/engineering
specifications, checked and approved by licensed contractor personnel
as well as by the investor. There are no surprises.
construction is not a new concept ... in fact it is the method
selected by most large development firms today ... precisely
to achieve the benefits set forth above. It represents a careful
progression of improved technology that commenced many years
ago with component construction, which evolved to panelized
applications and has resulted in recent years with the modular
system used in OFF-SITE construction today.
the project retains the traditional ingredients of' wood stud
walls, drywall, exterior sheathing, etc., most of the structure
is completed in the assembly facility in sections and then
transported to the site for the brief finishing phase. These
self-contained sections include all of the components such
as plumbing, wiring, lighting fixtures, doors, windows and
the many elements necessary to complete the project. The size
of the sections are such that they are easily transported to
the site. All construction meets or exceeds Federal standards
as well as State and local requirements.
various plans available have been designed by architects and
engineers to incorporate land parcels suitable for a minimum
1,100 sq.ft. entry level home to custom designs of 4200 sq.
ft. As the seasoned builder/developer knows various design
options are critical for meeting homeowners requirements and
creating a suitable living environment in the community thereby
insuring a ready demand for the projects when completed.
There is a reason why OFF-SITE construction is the fastest growing segment
of the building industry today. This advanced technology represents benefits
that are unique while delivering a quality built home, in as little as 60 days
from delivery to completion.
