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.
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.
