Modular houses and buildings

 

A modular building is a manufactured building consisting of separate and assembled sections on a permanent foundation to save time and labor on site. The modules can be assembled into buildings floor by floor. Modules are increasingly used to build houses or multi-unit buildings. In general, consumer demand for manufactured housing is differentiated between affordable homes and those of high-end custom-built home. While the demand for classic manufactured homes is stable, the demand for innovative products in this sector appears strong.

Greatly appreciated and sought after by customers, the full-wall windows offer a high quality and incomparable brightness. In winter or summer, you can feel in contact with the outdoors. By its smart and practical design, the integrated garage gives you the opportunity to keep a clean visual perspective. Unique in residential construction, the flat steel roof covered with elastomeric membranes provides outstanding load capacity to satisfy your needs, whatever they are. These additional spaces –non-existent in other housing types– add to the living space of your home, providing a larger area of privacy. Because of their heavy-duty robustness, these spaces offer you the possibility of installing a patio, trees and perennials, a gazebo, a garden, a spa, a swimming pool or even a solarium!

 

The exterior composite coating, as well as the terraces of the Steel Block Habitat is designed with fibroplastics composite, a green, maintenance-free, and innovative material. Currently, the Steel Block Habitat would be the first home of its kind in Canada. Furthermore, due to its structural capacity, its innovative exterior finish coating, as well as the abundant fenestration with a high quality triple A aluminium framing, this home will guarantee you low maintenance and a significantly superior sustainability as compared to traditional constructions.

 

 

Why Choose a House with a Steel Structure?

A residential building with steel structure offers several incomparable advantages. It has a high load-bearing wall that could support up to ten storeys without concrete. Its strength and reliability keep you safe from natural disasters such as earth tremors and earthquakes. In fact, these timeless homes retain Canada’s high standards of quality concerning energy performance, where extreme weather conditions can vary from -40 to +40 Celsius (-40 to 100 Fahrenheit). In addition, this material provides extra protection against fire and is a permanent solution to problems related to pests (termites, carpenter ants, etc.). It’s resistant during transportation and even exportation.   Wrapped steel is also a material that requires very little maintenance, especially since it is protected by a baked paint, applied in a vanguard workshop, offering an exceptional finish quality and a durability of at least 50 years. For all these reasons, you will save time and money for decades with a Steel Block Habitat!
