Over time, critics have referred to these communities as ‘trailer parks’ and ‘mobile home parks’. A kinder and more recent description has been ‘manufactured housing communities’. Nevertheless, regardless of the label, these communities are an important response to the affordable housing crisis that has impacted many North Americans. Unlike conventional homes built on-site, a manufactured home is less expensive and harmful to the environment and is more energy-efficient because manufacturers produce them inside a factory instead of on-site. With over 50 years of experience in manufactured housing site planning, we believe now, more than ever, that communities built around factory-built homes are at the forefront of future affordability and innovation in the housing market. Both the design of housing units and the planning and design of communities are poised to experience significant growth. Enhanced community livability (and often maintenance-free communities) adds further value to manufactured housing communities, making them an affordable, beautiful and liveable option for everyone. With our extensive industry knowledge, we can assist with every part of the planning and design process, including localized research, a detailed site analysis, preliminary site planning, sketch master planning, re-zoning assistance, detailed amenity design, construction documentation and even on-site construction monitoring.
