There is a misconception in Latin America that modular homes look too much alike. Prefabricated concrete modular homes have no design limitations and are custom made to owner's requirements and needs. Any architectural style that you desire can be constructed. Good architects do much more than design plus looks, they are also responsible for the functional design of the home as well. DRM Investments has the expertise to blend the forms and functions & execute the plans to perfection anywhere in the Latin American subcontinent.
Prefab modular concrete homes are versatile. Rooms or floors can be added to the existing home easily. That being said, improvements can be done at a much lower cost and in a shorter time period compared to stick-built additions. It's beneficial to have a prefab modular cement home that has a longer life span and expands as your family members or needs grow.
The region has diverse renewable energy potential including solar, wind and geothermal energy Solar and wind are intermittent, utilized together in a hybrid system. The hybrid system supplies power to the home and stores extra unused power acquired from the solar and wind into batteries for future use. These batteries help to limit power fluctuations and accommodate varying outputs from the solar and wind hybrid system. The hybrid system is computer controlled. If the stored electricity in the batteries becomes depleted, the hybrid system will automatically take the needed power from the local power grid or a generator.
Prefab modules are produced at the factory under a controlled environment. This process produces less material waste during the production, making it more eco-friendly. Prefab concrete modular construction is built on a permanent foundation and conforms to the same building codes as all Latin American building norms. It has a faster construction speed as it's built off site and can be assembled in conjunction with the foundation preparation. The time saved translates to cost reduction and the family can occupy the house faster.
Steel and concrete modular constructions are fire resistant and provide more rigidity and load bearing ability. Steel and concrete prefab modular constructions have a much longer life span than traditional homes. Commercial prefab modular structures are multi-functional and can provide all types of building spaces from small to complex, single to multi story and temporary to permanent. Prefab modular construction practices are of a higher quality standard and the finished product is more durable than the traditional stick-build model. Materials purchased are at an all-time low, therefore, waste is minimized and savings are maximized.
