The factory construction process is a major factor in creating a sustainable home... Hive works with pre-existing factories throughout the US and Canada to minimize shipping costs and embodied energy of the home.
Modular and other off-site systems build faster and cleaner, with 50% to 75% less waste than standard construction and a lower embodied energy than a site-built home.
Impact to the site is dramatically reduced because of a shorter on-site construction time
Our prefab homes are set and weather-tight within hours
Due to the "inside to outside" modular construction technique, the houses can be sealed to have extremely low air infiltration.
