Not only is it quicker. It’s cost-efficient. Habitat Halton-Mississauga-Dufferin is ramping up its build processes by shifting its operations to modular construction. Habitat is partnering with Quality Homes, a custom modular housing builder, to develop and deliver affordable housing faster than ever before.
On receipt of the build permit, these quality modular homes can be precision-built in a state-of-the-art factory and be ready for delivery in just under 6 weeks,
enabling an exponential increase in construction efficiency.
So why does speed matter so much? It matters because there are thousands of families in the Halton and Peel Regions who are waiting for affordable housing. To meet the needs of these families and the communities it serves, Habitat Halton-Mississauga-Dufferin has prioritized the speed and scale of delivering top-quality housing in its homebuilding operations. The benefits of modular housing don’t end there.
Modular building reduces costs. Because the units are built indoors, there is minimal opportunity for weather-related delays in construction schedules. Building modular generates next to zero waste and requires zero inspections once the units arrive on site because they are pre-inspected prior to departing the factory. With oversight and professional support included by the manufacturer, assembly on-site is seamless.
Habitat Halton-Mississauga-Dufferin’s first modular built housing project will be the McFadden-McMahon build in Georgetown, Ontario. Affordable housing constructed to the highest standards, for fixed costs, with no weather delays and in record time all means a place to call home for more families in our community.
