Systems-Built Modular Homes

What is a building system? A building system is a highly engineered method of producing buildings or building components in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The use of building systems is common in many different types of residential and commercial construction. A modular home is the culmination of one type of building system. Modular homes begin as components that are designed, engineered and assembled in the controlled environment of a modern factory, sometimes hundreds of miles away from their final destination. After delivery to the job site, the components are erected on a permanent foundation, where the construction process is completed.

Tell me more about the modular home building process. The building process begins at the design phase. At Fertakos & Company, Inc., we use state-of-the-art computer-assisted design software to produce detailed drawings. Once designed, the building process begins. The process is similar to building on-site. The same high quality materials, care for detail and building codes and standards are observed. So what's different? Efficiency and quality control! Efficiency begins with modern factory assembly line techniques. Modular units are moved from work-station to work-station, where each of the building trades is represented. Work is never delayed by weather, subcontractor no-shows, or missing material. Quality engineering and modular construction techniques significantly increase the energy efficiency of the modular units. A quality control process provides assurance that the units have been inspected for code compliance and workmanship. In-plant inspectors as well as independent agencies inspect the units on behalf of your state and local governments.

How long does it take to build a modular home? Two of the many advantages for choosing modular components are speed and consistent quality. On average, the modular units can be produced and delivered within 6-10 weeks. Erection and on-site completion will vary, but the level of design and features offered by Fertakos & Company, Inc., will require about 60-90 days to finish.
