Improving the Efficiency of Modular Home Construction in Michigan
The modular home construction industry in Michigan has made significant advances in implementing processes and materials to build and deliver more sophisticated and complex prefab houses. More and more customers are turning to modular homes for a number of reasons. Always known for its time saving advantages, a modular home is now being recognized for being a more resource-efficient, inherently greener process.
Legendary Homes Inc. in southern Michigan has made it a point to improve the delivery of each modular home we built. We have our own special techniques to provide efficient and sturdy modular homes. The following, thereof, are some of the techniques why modular construction has been improving.
Use of Technology
Modular home builders, manufacturers and general contractors have shifted their system to an efficient process. They incorporated the use of technology to the modular home construction process. From planning and designing the floor plan to the application of finishes, a range of information technology tools and applications including computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), and three– and four–dimensional visualization and modeling programs are utilized. Effective use of these technologies requires integrated, collaborative processes and effective planning up front and thus can help overcome obstacles to efficiency created by process fragmentation.
Improve Job- Site
The job site for a modular home construction project is a dynamic place, involving numerous contractors, subcontractors, trades people, and laborers, all of whom require equipment, materials, and supplies to complete their tasks. Managing these activities and demands to achieve the maximum efficiency from the available resources is difficult and typically not done well. Time, money, and resources are wasted when projects are poorly managed, causing workers to have to wait around for tools and work crews’ schedules to conflict; when work crews are not on–site at the appropriate time; or when supplies and equipment are stored haphazardly, requiring that they be moved multiple times.
Proper Use of Modular Home Construction Techniques
Prefabrication, preassembly, modularization, and off–site fabrication involve the fabrication or assembly of systems and components at off-site locations and manufacturing plants. Once completed, the components of a modular home are shipped to a construction job site for installation at the appropriate time. These techniques offer the promise of lower project costs, shorter schedules, improved quality, and more efficient use of labor and materials.
