How can quality be assured when using the modular method of construction?

The homes are built in our manufacturing yard under strict and constant supervision. This enables Modular WA to ensure that works are completed to the highest levels of quality first time and every time.

Why is the modular process quicker than traditional on site building?

Unlike traditional site built homes construction of modular homes can start while the building permit application is being lodged and approved and this can save a significant amount of time. The homes are built in our manufacturing yards using dedicated teams of skilled tradesman, no need to wait while tradesmen travel from site to site as they do in traditional build methods. While your Modular WA home is being built in the manufacturing yard, work can also be underway on your site in preparation for delivery of the building.
