Site Security
In An
Urban Environment
Detroit,
Michigan

Speedy and Secure

Champion built, delivered and installed 38 one- and two-story homes at a rate of one per day to redevelop and revitalize a nine square block urban community surrounding a Detroit elementary school. The rapid build rate was critical to site security and the Company's off-site construction limited neighborhood and local elementary school impact.

PROJECT SCOPE
  • 38 one- and two-story architecturally appropriate homes
  • Build rate of one per day
CHALLENGE
Keep building sites secure in an urban "turnaround" area where quick, efficient and architecturally appropriate home building was required.

SOLUTION
  • Champion worked with the developer's architects to customize the homes to fit the neighborhood architecture
  • Champion modular construction offered a neighborhood-friendly option, at a faster build rate and a high quality level for a more affordable cost
  • Renters were in the homes within 90 days of construction
  • Champion installed homes with porches and garages
