FISHERS, Ind., June 1, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Land Betterment Corporation (“Land Betterment” or the “Company”), an environmental solutions company fostering positive impact through upcycling former coal mining and industrial sites to create sustainable community development and job creation, is thrilled to announce that it’s ekō Solutions division has received licenses for Modular Home Manufacturer status for their ekō container-based housing in the states of Alabama and Kentucky.  

This license signifies to Alabama and Kentucky that ekō Solutions manufactures homes to strict quality management processes to meet specific codes required.  ekō Homes are built to adhere to the International Building Code (IBC), National Electrical Code (NEC), International Residential Code (IRC), as well as any state specific building codes. This means ekō Homes are built to the same standards as the traditional stick-built homes.  This license allows ekō Solutions to also sell their 5 models direct to the public with easier access to financing for the individual.

In most cases modular homes are superior in quality compared to the traditional stick-built home. This high level of quality is possible through the manufacturing of modular homes in a factory consistent “assembly line” method as well as undergoing strict quality control for each unit.  Additionally a modular home is made in a climate-controlled facility following a strict quality control plan according to international and state building codes.

Why are ekō modular Homes desirable?

  • Build Speed
    Modular homes offer the speed simply unavailable by traditional home building. One aspect of speed is lack of weather delays, but another key point is the method in which these homes are built in consistent flow assembly line with specific work instructions for every task. ekō Solutions takes special care in the design and execution of the required work. Each detail is focused on from the faucets they use in the kitchens and bathrooms, to the specific location of electrical outlets.  This standardized method of home building allows ekō Solutions to manufacture homes in speeds upwards of 7 homes per week.
  • Wear and Tear Resistant
    Because ekō homes need to withstand the wear and tear of being transported (in their previous life as an ocean shipping container), lifted, and moved, means they are built to be much stronger in order to successfully pass building standards and codes.

Pete Rodriquez, President of ekō Solutions noted,  “This is a major milestone for ekō Solutions as it brings legitimacy to our home building process and signals to the consumer that our container homes are built to a high quality and standard. We must follow a process, procedures and obtain quality inspections before these homes are shipped, installed and inhabited. This is a true validation for our ekō Homes.  With these licenses, we can now work directly with financing organizations to assist the home owners to obtain financing if desired.”
