Designed and built using “green” principles, with the process starting by harvesting from sustainably managed forests, adhering to the strictest extraction codes and guidelines. Employing our factory-controlled process and waste-management plan means that homes are built to specific measurements, ensuring maximization of resources and minimized generation of wastage during construction. Materials are recycled, with controlled inventory and protection of all building materials. As a result of constructing in an enclosed environment using dry materials, the potential for increased levels of moisture being trapped in the lumber is also minimized.
The adoption of “Green Technologies” as necessary:
- Solar powered LED lighting and small power
- Appropriate building orientation and careful selection of cladding materials for passive cooling
- Water saving WC’s
Built to approved construction standards and codes, with grade-A materials that have been tested, monitored, improved and perfected over time. Our experienced team of engineers, technicians, craftsmen and assemblers guarantee that all components are built with structural rigidity through our quality control processes. With standardized, precision cuts, our homes are also designed to withstand the rigors of shipping as well as adverse weather condition and are resistant to insect attacks and decay.
Engineered with the most modern construction techniques, a DuraVilla modular timber home is designed to maximize energy efficiency. The construction process allows for ease in identifying and filling gaps around pipes, electrical outlets, windows, doors and external sheathing. The panels are airtight and well-insulated, ensuring low infiltration rates, resulting in minimized heating and cooling costs. The systems keep the home free from draught and cold spots, which redound to consistent temperature throughout.
By utilizing repetitive techniques and heavy-duty equipment, the DuraVilla Homes team is able to complete a home in minimal time without compromising quality and integrity of the structure. Construction takes place within an enclosed environment, eliminating all setbacks such as adverse weather conditions, which usually cause delays to onsite construction. Assembly of our homes are undertaken in 60 days.
A DuraVilla timber modular home is priced to specification, therefore, once a contract is finalized, the quoted price is guaranteed. There are no hidden or emergent fees subsequent to construction. Costs overruns resulting from on-site design changes and increased labor charges are also eliminated. There will be a proportionate saving in costs from internal economies of scale in production. External economies will be obtained from purchasing a high percentage of locally harvested raw materials. These cost-saving strategies will result in the supply of affordable homes.
Allows for contemporary or antique, flexible designs and offers an array of interior and exterior customizations that will further enhance the uniqueness of the homes. Homes can be elevated and be constructed with accessibility/wheelchair ramps.
Designed to be flat-packed and transported/shipped to any destination and can be installed on both flat and sloped terrain.
