The building industry is static.
It’s time to change that.
The proliferation of the digital era has changed the way we design and build cars, airplanes, and ships -- but the building industry has largely remained unchanged. We’re continuing to use methods that were familiar to us hundreds of years prior, before the invention of the iPhone and the computer.
The most obvious advantage to modular construction is the ability to parallel process. There aren’t any weather delays, but at VBC we’ve added additional innovation to make our production line faster.
Certainty isn’t an adjective typically associated with the construction industry, but that doesn’t have to be the case. VBC has de-risked our supply chain by partnering directly with commodity manufacturers.
High end performance comes standard with modular construction. The integration of advanced technologies may reduce total energy use by 50 percent when compared to comparable site-built construction. Just 30% improvement could mean savings of $1,000 per unit annually.
Since few materials are wasted, stolen, or damaged when stored in a factory this reduces waste and make things greener, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Enhanced reliance on machinery naturally increases efficieny. Machines can be set and programmed to perform the same act repeatedly and deliver with a consistency and accuracy that humans can’t match.
VBC offers a productized approach to housing development with a standard catalog of units. This not only expedites design time, but allows VBC to continually innovate and improve our product offerings.
