While we are making strides in certain areas to decrease that waste, factory-built panels and full rooms/homes offer a great opportunity for waste reduction. Imagine being able to apply all the same part sequencing, cut optimization for framing materials and zero waste manufacturing methods that are currently done in other parts of the manufacturing sector to buildings. A modular building platform also offers standardization of a kit of parts while allowing for customization through options (finishes). For example, if the modular builder has six models they offer, those can all be built on the same part platform to standardize and avoid unnecessary cuts and waste.
