Why choose prefabricated construction over traditional site built?

1- Reduced project schedule: With the home being built offsite, other tasks can take place simultaneously condensing the schedule and allowing you to enjoy your investment sooner.

2-Remote Site Access:  Conventional site construction in remote or challenging locations can be cumbersome, expensive and time consuming. Prefab construction means less trips to site, less site construction, less neighborhood disturbance and a quicker overall process. 

3-Quality Control/Quality Assurance: Our homes are built in our Canadian based manufacturing facility. Our product and our facility are both strictly regulated and inspected by a third party government regulated agency to ensure we are in compliance with our CSA A277 and CSA Z240 standards during all phases of construction.
