Construction

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.
