WHY MODSCAPE?

We’re able to leverage distinct advantages when designing and building your new modular home, ensuring it is completed to the highest quality.

FIXED COST

Due to the way we design, manufacture and deliver our projects, we require full design resolution and documentation before we undertake any building works. This enables us to deliver absolute price certainty by way of a fixed price contract.

Our clients find that they can make significant savings to their end project cost thanks to:

  • The fixed timeline for construction and delivery
  • One team managing the process of designing, pricing and building your home
  • Design and engineering services for your modular architecture offered in-house
  • Reduced wastage and proven systems to help minimise environmental and financial costs
  • Minimal holding costs of land (if applicable)
  • Minimal on-site time
  • The ability to avoid the high costs of renting while a renovation or build is happening.

CUSTOM DESIGN

The process of creating our prefab homes is highly planned and design led, but flexible in outcome. We create a unique modular home design for you that is site specific and reflects your requirements and budget. Our combination of modularisation and prefabricated systems as well as our experience allows us to produce innovative, flexible living spaces that are both beautiful and functional. You might find our Modular Design Guide helpful – ‘How to design using modules’ is a guide to the way we approach design using our flexible modular system.

  TAILORED TO SUIT YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS

While we use modules to save you time and money, each modular home project is custom designed to suit your spatial requirements and site. Our modules are made from fully welded structural steel frames that use structural insulated panels (SIPs) to create a highly insulated cell. There is no set size for a module as all modules are customised to suit each design.

  FLEXIBLE DESIGN

Typically a module can range from 2m to 5m in width and from 2m to 15m in length. The majority of our sustainable house designs use a combination of module sizes to create a flexible design, with modules stacked on top of each other, placed side by side or end to end. More information about module size and configuration can be found in our Modular Design Guide.

   YOU STAY IN CONTROL

Our in-house design team will work with you to bring your ideas to life. We have a network of quality external consultants that can be employed on your project where required. We’re also happy to work with your preferred architect or be directed by your proposed concept designs.

Design and finish options are limitless – but what is certain is that every design is the result of our design team’s genuine collaboration with you.

TIME EFFICIENT

Your modular home will be built and installed within 12 weeks of receipt of the required building permit. The unique construction process combines modularisation and prefabrication to create a degree of automation that cannot be achieved on-site. The risk of weather and site delays is eliminated, allowing for a fixed timeline for design, construction and delivery. As a result, the time it takes to build your home is set from commencement to completion. You can plan your life knowing that you will get the keys on an agreed date.

QUALITY & ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS

We use products of only the highest quality in our designs, and we place emphasis on materials that are recyclable, reconstituted or sustainably sourced.

Our modules are constructed using a structural steel frames and structural insulated panels (SIPs) that can be recycled at the end of their lifespans. The factory environment that our modules are constructed in enables a rigorous level of quality control, ensuring no detail is overlooked. By constructing your home in a factory, we are able to reduce site waste and environmental impact. Our homes are finalised to standard building material sizes and any material waste is recycled.

SUSTAINABILITY FOCUSED

Modscape’s perspective on sustainability is centred around a desire to create modular homes that are innovative, comfortable, healthy and environmentally sustainable. All our eco-friendly homes are based on sustainable design principles that minimise environmental impact, maximise year-round comfort and reduce running costs. Read more on our sustainability page.

AUSTRALIAN MADE

Modscape is 100% Australian owned and operated, and our prefab homes are Australian made and delivered Australia-wide.

All of our modular homes are constructed at our modular construction hub in Brooklyn, Melbourne. Next to the factory is the home of our design team where the project design happens.

The team combine their extensive experience in the design, development and construction industries to create our modular masterpieces – overseeing projects from design right through to installation.

DEDICATED PROJECT TEAM

We offer an end-to-end service, making the process of designing and building a new home enjoyable and hassle-free.

Our team can manage any or all stages of the design and building process. In addition to the construction of your modular home, town planning, site connections, demolition, site clearance and landscaping can all be managed by us and we’d be happy to provide a fee proposal for this if desired.
