Green building principles guide the operations of Rochester Homes, Inc.,

Despite the resource-intensive nature of the construction industry, Rochester Homes, Inc. has achieved significant increases in efficiency. Featured in Modern Home Builder Magazine, this company produces modular homes that deliver efficiency and comfort to the homeowner while keeping waste to a minimum in the factory.

Kenny Anderson, President of the Rochester Homes, Inc, explained that manufacturing homes in a factory setting is inherently more efficient than on-site construction.

“With factory-built homes the materials to build numerous homes are shipped to one location instead of shipping materials to a bunch of individual sites. The difference in fuel usage alone is big,” Anderson said.

Additional savings on scrap materials are gained at the factory. The company recycles as much scrap as possible. Little of its wood waste goes to landfills. A leftover board can always contribute to the next job instead of being tossed in a dumpster.

All cardboard is recycled. Scraps of it serve well to protect flooring on newly built homes. The builder also stores leftover vinyl siding and uses it to make other vinyl products. The flooring contractor sells scraps of carpet and tile as remnants. Leftover copper wiring is recycled too.

The choice to use only low or zero volatile organic compounds paints and solvents in the building process enhances the environmental quality of the final buildings.
