Modular construction is common in Philadelphia

 

 

 

Modular construction is not new to Philadelphia. A number of builders here have been using it, including Westrum Development Co. at its Hilltop at Falls Ridge in East Falls and the Arbours at Eagle Pointe in the Northeast.

Developer David Perelman built 75 modular homes during the 2003-2006 real estate boom to keep up with demand. And developer Jeffrey Tubbs, for his first foray into home building three years ago, used modules for his Flats at Girard Pointe, near Girard Avenue and Third Street.

The 106 modules now being used to build Diamond Green Apartments in North Philadelphia were manufactured by Professional Building Systems in Middleburg, Pa., one of a growing number of producers in the state, in a controlled factory environment. Individual modules can be 90 percent complete when they are shipped from factory to building site, with walls, flooring, ceilings, stairs, and even finishes complete.
