InnovaHomes

We're giving developers, municipalities and communities the tools they need to build a thriving Kent County.

One of the tools in the InnovaLaB toolkit is “InnovaHomes,” a modular home construction innovation that can bring in new construction for far less than the traditional new construction housing prices – $175,000 – $215,000. These prices will help with Kent County’s “missing middle” housing shortage and overall reduce the burden on low-income housing.

This InnovaHomes modular design is a collaboration with Champion Homes, a Troy, MI-based modular housing construction company with over 60 years of experience. Modular homes are built in a factory environment in sections and transported to the construction site where they are installed on permanent foundations and completed by professional installers in as quickly as one week. Because of this construction technique homes can be developed with much more efficiency – not only in time savings but cost savings both concerning labor and land holding time before the property goes to market.

When new home construction can meet this price points it helps to stabilize lower-income housing prices. Further, these homes can be shipped and constructed in as little as one week which can ensure new houses can come online much more quickly than before which will help developers meet the demand for single or multi-family housing. InnovaHomes is a recognized model that has been working across the country to ensure affordable housing for communities. It also allows for new home ownership and allows us to grow our community to fit the needs of employers and helps ensure a more equitable community.
