Prefabricated houses and modular houses, despite being similar, differ in many ways. One such difference is the building time. In both cases, the houses are made in specific production areas before being transported to the site, but the erection and interior finishing are very different processes.
In the case of prefabricated houses, concrete or wood panels are the only elements manufactured in industrialised spaces before being taken to their final location, where they are assembled to make the shell of the house. Once this shell has been set up on site, the different contractors then have to get to work, as in conventional houses, to build the roof and reinforce the whole set of climatic and acoustic insulation and façade finishes. All of the interior elements are also built in situ. These works sometimes involve long periods depending on the dimensions and characteristics of each home, as well as the weather. Finally, the houses need to be furnished before moving in.
In contrast, Kub’s modular homes are fully completed in just five months. We manufacture them at “Kub’s Hub” with 100% controlled production processes that allow us to offer a firm price without deviations and to guarantee the delivery date. What’s more, because they are manufactured in fully controlled industrial spaces, we can work with much more stringent safety measures and reduce waste without disturbing the residents.
The foundations and different supplies are previously put into place, and the house is set up on site the same day we transport it, completely finished and equipped with furniture and appliances. It takes approximately four days to assemble the house module interiors before customers move in with the certainty that everything is exactly what was agreed in the initial design.
