Design

We've developed a range of options for every home and have developed a new design process for 2020: 1. Choose your floorplan; 2. Choose energy performance; 3. Selection Kitchens, Baths and Millwork; 4. Select Windows and Exterior Doors; 5. Select Lighting, Exterior Finishes, and Facades. All of our designs are completed using 3D software that allows us to import and detail your site, building model, sun and shading among other things.
Yes. Built Prefab can build structures to meet any energy and/or construction standards such as R2000, LEED, Energy Star, Passive House, Built Green, Living Building Challenge, or others. Energy-efficient homes are more comfortable, healthier, and less expensive to maintain and live in. Meeting these standards requires consideration at the start of the design stage of your project, which really means let's talk about this as soon as possible if it's on your mind.
You can call or email us at any time for consultation at no charge.

Production, Delivery and Sitework

Actual build times typically vary depending on size and number of modules, but factory time may be as short as one month and installation could be as short as a few days. Please refer to our Buyer's Guide to understand other time factors such as design, permitting and procurement among others.
We work with a production partner based in Kelowna, British Columbia.
We ship units within British Columbia and Alberta.
The amount of work to be completed on site is dependent on the model, your site and the overall scope of work detailed in your design. In some cases, it could be a matter of days; however, if you have a complex design installation may take over a month.
The answer is yes we can, but with the caveat that our preference is to install our homes on a crawl space or screw pile system. If you decide to build a basement we recommend that you work with a local contractor to complete the basement finishing once the units have been completely installed.

Cost and Finance

Please check the Build and Price link at the top of the page. If you are interested in a custom design please contact us for more information.
We do not offer internal financing; however, we have recommended lending institutions we have worked with in the past who have experience working with prefab and modular projects.
