How Can You Use This Unique Construction Method?
ARCHITECTON in association with SHELTER INDUSTRIES, has redefined Modular Homes. Architect-designed,
customizable homes are delivered to your site with all interior and exterior finishing completed and are suitable for a wide variety
of locations. Imagine going from start of construction and start of site work, to move-in within 8-12 weeks!
Eco-friendly solutions are incorporated from the preliminary design stage.
Construction of the modules (view construction videos), and site work, foundations and assembly of the
modules, are done by experienced professionals on time and on budget.
The efficiency of Modular Design, coupled with superior quality control, creates a savings of cost and time that is
passed directly on to you as a builder, developer or homeowner. Factors such as new modular construction technologies, a trend toward
down-sizing, growing demand for vacation and second homes, and severe trade-labour shortages have all added to the increased appeal of
modern Modular Design in today's marketplace.
- Ideal for remote areas where it is often difficult, if not impossible, to hire a contractor and sub-trades.
- Energy conservation and sustainability are a priority in the design and construction. The PreFabulous Home is an
EcoFabulous home because it is energy efficient and ecofriendly.
- Save time and money with modules factory built and inspected before and after delivery.
- Modular Homes are being financed, insured and appraised
exactly the same as site-built homes.
