THE BENEFITS OF FACTORY-BUILT HOUSING

Time

 LESS TIME

It takes about 25% less time to produce a home in a factory environment than in the field. In a controlled environment, there’s no need to worry about weather, damage to materials and theft. This helps you save money while controlling costs over the entire homebuilding process.

Waste

LESS WASTE

In addition to faster production times, factory-built homes produce significantly less waste. When materials aren’t exposed to weather, theft or other factors in the field, approximately 30% less waste is generated. This translates into money saved and less impact on the environment.

Money

LESS MONEY

Building homes in a controlled environment allows manufacturers to scale processes that speed up construction of the homes. This efficient building system helps drive the price of the home down, transferring savings directly from the manufacturer to the homebuyer.
