Utilizing vertical integration and fast-track construction, the study resulted in an expedited construction schedule of 6 months and 35% reduction of construction costs.
To achieve this savings, the architecture firm acted as the developer, architect, interior designer, and general contractor, streamlining decision-making and communication. This process included the modular home factory in Chanute, KS, allowing all building systems and construction details to be resolved prior to the beginning of construction. The home, composed of four 12’x48’ modules, was built in a factory while excavation and foundation construction were simultaneously occurring on-site.
After 6 weeks in the factory, the four modules were delivered to the site with interior drywall, exterior materials, electrical, and plumbing preinstalled, crane set onto site-poured concrete foundations, and the final interior finishes, utility connections and exterior decks were installed.
The home showcases a high level of craftsmanship and is Net Zero Energy and Electric Vehicle ready.
