Small Business Owners Turn Increasingly to Modular Construction

10 May 2010

One of the fastest growing markets for modular home construction is small to mid-size companies.  Business owners are turning to modular construction for all the same reasons that families do.  But for business owners who all understand that “time is money”, the rapid delivery of finished modular construction translates directly to a more efficient path to revenue generation.  The lengthy construction process (and typical delays) of traditional stick-built construction directly translates  to “opportunity lost” for the business owner.

Avalon Building Systems offers Commercial General Office Buildings  are perfectly suited for company headquarters, production facilities, and/or both.

Financing and Insuring for Modular Homes vs Stick Built Homes

Financing and Insuring for Modular Homes vs Stick Built Homes

We want you to know that we’ve inquired of multiple banks and insurance companies about the differences in financing and insuring modular home construction.  Their response is universally consistent…..There is no difference in terms of both availability and cost.

Financiers and insurers are well aware that modular home construction strength and building standards exceed that of traditional “stick built” homes.  In fact, some insurers predict that the cost of insuring modular construction will become more affordable in time as actuaries continue to compile statistical evidence of the modular home’s structural superiority.  This is yet another reason the new home construction pendulum continues to swing in favor of modular home construction.

Structural Insulated Panels or SIPs Gain Popularity in Home Building Industry

20 April 2010

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) have been around for more than 50 years, but despite their many benefits, they have had minimal traction in the building industry for decades. As interest in green building and energy efficiency have increased SIPs have gained popularity as a viable alternative to stick-built framing.

Consolidating framing, insulation, and sheathing into one installation step - SIPs are primarily constructed with two outer skins of OSB laminated to an insulating foam core of either expanded polystyrene or polyisocyanurate. Studies have shown that SIPs provide a more energy-efficient and airtight structure than stick framing because they create a wall with continuous R-value, and wall studs create a thermal break, counteracting the effects of batt and even foam insulation. SIPs are typically 40 to 60 percent more energy efficient than stick construction. In addition, tested structural strength, efficient use of natural resources, warranties, and reduced cost of labor add to their appeal.

The panels are factory-built, some supplied as blanks with no cut-outs, others with window and door openings designed into the panel and with electrical chases routed, reducing waste on the jobsite. Avalon Building Systems offer ready-to-assemble systems that require no on-site cutting.  We service MA, ME, CT, RI, NY, VT, NH areas.
