The rise of prefab homes – A contemporary housing solution

22nd April 2019

Modular homes, made in factories and then delivered in sections that are assembled on site, are becoming increasingly popular as a way of beating the housing crisis.

Manufacturing costs are lower, and it’s been estimated that prefabs can be ready for occupation in less than half the time of traditional homes. Firms making them are quick to point out that today’s prefab homes are built to high quality standards and erecting them creates less noise and air pollution on site.
