The modular building process commences as soon as CMH is presented with the outline of a plan to build. Then CMH’s design team promptly creates an initial plan based on the information provided by the client . CMH’s sophisticated order entry and design systems enable CMH to design the structure desired, as well as produce an accurate price for the building. Once the plans are approved by the client, full detail drawings are produced and stamped by a third party engineering agency (or the local inspection agency in the case of four story and commercial structure). These plans are then used to secure the building permit.
Once the permit has been secured , CMH will then have the engineering department begins completing the production drawings to produce the modules. The building is scheduled for production in coordination with the client to meet the delivery date requested . CMH strives for on-time delivery dates.
Keep in mind the onsite civil engineering and surveying for grade plains and onsite water detention take some time and should be budgeted for if your town will require these. We have our own PE on staff to handle all the water and detention designs need in lower Fairfield County, CT which can really speed up the process! Ask about these service and our design services.
Each module becomes an important part of the structure and will be combined with the other modules at the site to form a complete building. The modules are built in a climate-controlled factory that provides for a much higher degree of quality, accuracy, less waste, stronger built home than a conventional site-built product.
The construction of the module begins with the construction of the floor system. Then, wall panels are attached to the floor system. With the walls in place, the roof system is craned into place and attached to all walls, completing the structure of the module. Electrical wiring and plumbing are built into the module both before and after the general structure is completed. When these components are complete, the exterior walls are insulated and covered with sheathing.
During the final finish stage of production, many of the finishes are applied such as custom cabinetry, remaining floor finishes, touch up painting and completion of punch list items. CMH utilizes state-of-the-art technology throughout the construction process and utilizes the best industry practices. Once the module is complete, it is totally wrapped and heat shrank in plastic to assure protection against the elements. The module is then loaded onto a carrier for transporting to the building site.
CMH’s construction is superior to site-built construction in many ways because of the controlled conditions and rigid inspection process throughout the construction process. The speed of modular construction is unsurpassed by any other construction technique.
The construction codes followed and the building materials used, are the same as site-built construction but not WET because stored in a covered structure then brought into a climate control factory. CMH’s modular structure is generally stronger and more energy-efficient than most site-built structures. All of the materials used in a CMH structures are purchased exactly for that structure, thus reducing waste and damage to the stored materials. Again material are stored inside.
Our customers have the ability to choose from a wide variety of brand name components or can even request custom items.
