In response to the crisis, the National Cabinet and federal government pledged $3 billion and $500 million, respectively, in incentives to support the construction of 1.2 million dwellings over the next 5 years.This initiative aims to expedite building approvals and housing construction. However, challenges arise with rising material prices and tariffs on imported steel.
Modular Construction as a Solution
The Modular Advantage: Recognizing the limitations of traditional construction, modular construction and prefab methods emerge as a faster and more cost-effective solution. Modular or prefab houses can be completed 30% to 50% sooner than conventional housing, with 60% to 90% of construction taking place offsite, ensuring higher quality and safety standards.
Customization and Affordability: Prefab houses offer future homeowners extensive customization options, tailoring homes to specific needs. This approach not only accelerates the building process but also addresses the affordability challenge in the housing market.
