Modular Construction for Efficient Cottage Building in Port Elgin Estates & Resort

What is a Four Season Resort Cottage and How are they Made?

Great Blue Resorts have been the go-to vacation destination across Ontario for families and couples alike to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and relax in Ontario cottage country. With eight amazing locations across Muskoka, The Kawarthas, Perth, and Prince Edward County, both vacation guests and resort cottage owners spend May through October boating on the lake, relaxing by the pool, sitting under the warm sun on the beach, and roasting s’mores around the campfire.

Located in the charming region of Saugeen Shores, Port Elgin Estates & Resort is the newest addition to Great Blue Resorts, providing an alternative for those seeking a longer stay in Ontario cottage country. These Lake Huron cottages offer owners the opportunity to enjoy four season resort cottage living. That’s right! All-year round living means enjoying the cottage during every season and for a full 12 months of the year.

To meet the demand of a flourishing community of families and couples looking to join the Port Elgin Estates & Resort community, cottages are built through a method of construction called Modular Construction. But what is Modular Construction?

Modular Construction: The Future of Four Season Resort Cottages & Homebuilding

Building a home or commercial space from scratch can be an exciting experience, but it can also be a daunting task. The traditional on-site building process can take months and sometimes even years with hidden surprises and cost overruns.

However, with the emergence of modular construction, homebuilding has never been more streamlined and cost-effective.

What is Modular Construction?

Modular construction is an alternative method of construction compared to traditional on-site building. It involves building a residential or commercial structure off-site, in a controlled indoor factory setting. Once completed, the structure is transported to the construction site and assembled in a matter of hours. Modular construction does not refer to a specific design or style; it’s simply the method of building.

Why Port Elgin Estates & Resort Chooses Modular Construction?

There are many reasons why this method is becoming increasingly popular. Firstly, it offers controlled weather conditions which ensure a dry building envelope. This guarantees that the building isn’t exposed to harsh weather elements such as rain, snow, or wind during the construction process. Secondly, prefab modular construction offers improved quality control as all labour is supervised and performed in-house which reduces the likelihood of errors or defects in the building process. modular construction also reduces material waste resulting in less environmental impact and increases worker safety through a controlled indoor environment. 

At Conquest, they understand the benefits of modular construction. From start to finish during the building process, they ensure that every aspect is performed to exact standard which allows for a stress-free experience for their clients.

Disregard the Weather by Building Indoors

One of the biggest advantages of this method of building is that it allows for builders to control the weather in which they’re working in. No matter how harsh the weather outside, the climate-controlled building environment ensures that projects can be completed without delays. This guarantees that the quality of workmanship and raw materials is maintained, even during the harshest of winter months. Through this method comes the ability to control climate, quality, costs, and outcomes for every project. By choosing modular construction you can be assured that your home will be completed on time, within budget, and to the highest quality standards.

Fewer Scheduling Conflicts

Scheduling conflicts are one of the biggest issues in traditional on-site building. Overlapping trade gaps can lead to delays and additional costs, which can be frustrating for both the builder and the client. Conquest has their own red seal trades on staff, ensuring that every stage of your build runs smoothly. All trades work for the same team, ensuring that everyone is on the same page when it comes to designing and building projects.
