Industrialized construction (IC) – the method that helps residential developers move quickly from original concept to completed homes – is just around the corner. We can show you how easy it is to get there.
Top 10 reasons why developers are moving toward industrialized construction (IC)
- It’s a next-generation way of building a home. Industrialized construction gets all of a building’s infrastructure built in a factory setting, off site: plumbing, electrical, and HVAC, are all done according to your specs and delivered to your site.
- Industrialized construction puts home developments under your control. Because nearly completed homes that have already undergone rigorous QA and QC are delivered to you, you don’t have to keep track of a lot of basic quality and supply chain issues.
- Home inspections are a breeze. Everything is delivered by the manufacturer, ready for inspection.
- You can maximize energy efficiency, healthy home features, and building durability for your customers. The new generation of industrialized homes are factory built with superior insulation and air sealing, ready for high efficiency HVAC (for superior indoor air quality), home appliances, and windows—the features your customers want in a new home.
- You train your crews in a new way of completing homes. Because industrialized homes come nearly complete, crews can be easily trained to raise the bar on high-quality installations of interior finishes.
- You don’t have crew down-time, just because the electrician didn’t show up. Pre-built shells mean you don’t have to juggle your crew’s schedules at the last minute, because last-minute delays are rare.
- You can become a trusted name in building zero-energy homes. We help you learn what it takes to build your portfolio with the affordable, high-performance homes customers want most.
- Want to win a Zero Energy Ready Home Housing Innovation Award? Our team will help you get on the good side of your state’s decarbonization goals, and position you for recognition from the U.S. Department of Energy.
- Easily customize your building plans for zero energy modular homes. Expand your market with readily customizable designs that fit the community you’re building in—and deliver low- to no-cost utility services for your customers.
- Lower costs in the long run. Successful IC buildings involve significant planning that delivers savings on labor, materials, and insurance. Although upfront costs can require a high initial capital investment for acquiring certain technologies and for training workers in appropriate skills, those incremental costs can diminish or be eliminated altogether as a developer’s portfolio of IC buildings increases.
