A modular home not only looks great but has a wealth of sustainable benefits to help clear your conscious when moving into the construction phase of your home.
With modular homes, around 95% of the building occurs offsite and once installed the houses are placed on footings, significantly reducing disturbance to the land and environment to the habitat surrounding your home.
Waste reduction is one of modular manufacturing’s greatest benefits. In Australia, we create 20 million tons of construction waste each year. With prefab methods the majority of building occurs in a facility in one location, therefore, decreasing transportation and construction costs – as all necessary materials and equipment are already present at the facility. The sourcing & usage of materials is more efficiently managed and any left-over products or excess are sorted easily and reused, recycled, stockpiled or repurposed for other builds.
Pollution from producing modular homes is far less than regular builds. By using one location with a specialised facility – machinery usage decreases, along with transportation and logistics.
This ability to scale down emissions, impact to land, flora and fauna and reduction in waste means these homes carry a lighter carbon footprint and have a more ethical output. So, you can feel good knowing your home is being crafted mindfully.
