Like all our favourite tech, Modul homes are factory built. The homes arrive in New Zealand by container ship and are transported to prepared sites in neighbourhoods around Auckland.
Until now, the full-sized modular homes available in New Zealand were constructed from prefabricated components. A Modul home, on the other hand, isn’t made up of different prefab parts joined together. It’s a single prefabricated unit.
Each Modul home is manufactured in its entirety at the factory, northwest of Shanghai. The factory is a leading producer of prefabricated buildings in China, with an impressive welding facility for making customised modular buildings. The factory holds a number of global patents and ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications.
You can dig deeper into Modul’s environmental standards and how it fulfills the New Zealand building code in ‘Better than the building code’.
