A Modular Home Construction
In 2018, the state of Virginia needed to quickly downside an institution. Providers could not quickly find adequate housing in the desired locations to accommodate the need. Two homes were needed.
The Scioto Solution
Scioto has an existing relationship with a modular dealer in the region, to manufacture a high-quality house with Universal Design standards and efficient floor plans. Scioto detailed the scope of the project and a 6-bed floor plan was chosen for the modular homes.
The first house was delivered 65 days after building permit was obtained. This was possible because floor plans were already designed, and the process was engineered in a controlled environment. Construction of the house started at the same time as the site work.
The house was also delivered 15% under budget, since efficiencies in the process minimized change orders. In fact, the total cost of this new build was lower than comparable existing houses, which required substantial improvements for its desired use.
Family members were extremely happy their loved ones receive a new house. The Provider was happy to manage a house with an efficient floor plan designed exactly for this use, without compromises.
