The Process

The process of manufacturing factory-built homes in California and Oregon, transporting them to Hawaii, and then installing them on lots:

  1. Home design and engineering: The first step is to design and engineer the home. This includes selecting the materials, dimensions, and features of the home. The home must also be designed to meet the specific requirements of the Hawaiian climate and building codes.

  2. Manufacturing: The home is then manufactured in a factory. This process is highly automated and efficient, which allows homes to be built quickly and at a lower cost than traditional site-built homes.

  3. Transportation: Once the home is manufactured, it is transported to Hawaii. This can be a challenging process due to the distance and the unique shipping requirements of Hawaii. The home must be transported on a specialized barge or ship that can withstand the rough seas.

  4. Installation: Once the home arrives in Hawaii, it is installed on a lot. This process includes connecting the home to utilities, grading the lot, and landscaping.

 

Here are some of the specific challenges Symbol has overcome for manufacturing factory-built homes in California and Oregon and transporting them to Hawaii:

  • The distance between California and Oregon and Hawaii is significant. This can add to the cost of transportation and the time it takes to get the home to its destination.

  • The unique shipping requirements of Hawaii must be met. This includes ensuring that the home is properly secured and that it does not exceed the weight limit of the barge or ship.

  • The climate in Hawaii can be challenging. The homes must be made from materials that can withstand the heat, humidity, and salty air.

The Benefits

There are many benefits to manufacturing factory-built homes in California and Oregon and transporting them to Hawaii. These homes can be built quickly and at a lower cost than traditional site-built homes. They can also be customized to meet the specific needs of the homeowner.

Here are some of the benefits of factory-built homes:

  • Quicker construction: Factory-built homes can be constructed in a fraction of the time it takes to build a traditional site-built home. This is because the home is built in a factory under controlled conditions, where there is no weather delay.

  • Lower cost: Factory-built homes are typically less expensive than traditional site-built homes. This is because they are built using prefabricated materials and components, which can save on labor costs.

  • Customized options: Factory-built homes can be customized to meet the specific needs of the homeowner. This includes choosing the floor plan, finishes, and appliances.

  • Durable and energy-efficient: Factory-built homes are built to high standards and are often more durable and energy-efficient than traditional site-built homes.

 

If you are considering building a home in Hawaii, factory-built homes are a good option to consider. They offer many benefits, including quicker construction, lower cost, and customized options.
