Modular Home Construction and Operations

Modular homes are built using an engineered approach to produce buildings in a more efficient and cost effect method that can deliver lower home prices per square foot.

Instead of the traditional stick-built, on-site construction methods, most of the work is pre-fabricated at an off-site climate controlled factory. As each sub-section is finished it is transported to the building site and constructed together using the same methods the current stick built homes use.



Everyonegoeshome.com Learning Media Center.
A recent informational video was produced and developed on Residential Modular Construction Fires -Lessons Learned. This video discusses the hazards and lessons learned from fighting fires in modular construction homes. Chief Kevin A. Gallagher, Acushnet Fire & EMS Department, MA presented an informative session on operational issues an insights on construction methods and practices.

Based upon the information presented in the EGH video, here’s some additional information to increase your awareness on this construction system and process.
  • The question is this; “Are you aware of Modular Construction taking place in your response district, first-due area, greater alarm locations or mutual-aid districts?”
  • Operational strategies, tactics and task assignments at buildings constructed of modular construction will perform differently than those of engineered, conventional or legecy construction, continuing the challenages in identifying building construction features, occupany risk and selecting the appropriate operational deployment profile and tactics.
  • Remember, Building Knowledge=Firefighter Safety.

  9. These days , it is all about efficiency and getting the job done without the extra costs, especially when it comes to home construction and improvement.

    It would be best to get educated about how construction really works so that you will be able to understand what goes around a project up to the last detail. In this way, the materials and equipment used to build or remodel your home is guaranteed to fit your standards.

    As each sub-section is finished it is transported to the building site and constructed together using the same methods the current stick built homes use. Modular home industry representatives are preparing to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for tests they say will show the glue is just as safe as mechanical fasteners like screws and nails. Industry leaders are hoping those test results will convince the board to abandon its code change. Thanks for sharing.

    I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. I read your post. It really seems a great contribution by you. Tactics and task assignments at buildings constructed of modular construction will perform differently than those of engineered, conventional or legacy construction, continuing the challenges in identifying building construction features.
