How long does it take to build one?
The build process takes approximately 8-10 weeks for our standard option units. Custom build units can take longer. The permit process will vary upon the local code approval.
What about codes and zoning?
Codes and zoning will differ depending on the City/County that the unit will be placed and how it will be secured. We work with your respective planning office to ensure compliance before building begins.
How are they heated/cooled?
A high efficiency mini-split heating and air conditioning system is used as a standard. Larger residential or commercial properties may call for a conventional split or pack system.
How are they insulated?
The units are insulated using a combination of eco-BAT or closed-cell insulation and multi-ceramic thermal reflection exterior coatings. (walls R-19, ceilings R-30) Our insulation practices typically meet or exceeds most building requirements.
How are the utilities hooked up?
The utilities tie-in will vary pending the availability of pre-existing utility layout or if new utilities will be required.
How are they delivered and installed?
With a average flat grade site, the unit can be delivered by roll-off trailer.
What is the foundation?
Depending on the structure, site grade, and local code; we can use one of five options:
Slab on grade (Not recommend for container builds)
Perimeter stem wall (Single family homes)
Concrete pier (Most common method)
Concrete block or Steel tripod with ground anchor system (Smaller and temporary settings)
Gravel (Smaller personal property and storage units without plumbing)
