Nationwide Homes launched its Renew Avenue Collection of modular homes at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) 2011 held January 12-15 in Orlando, Florida. Renew Avenue homes are designed specifically for narrow-lot, urban infill projects for single and multiple lots, as well as for community redevelopment demand.
Significant experience in urban projects led Nationwide Homes to develop the infill-driven Renew Avenue Collection introduced at IBS, the housing industry’s largest annual trade show and exhibition. During 2010, the company was involved in several major infill projects throughout the Southeast, including Virginia, Florida, Georgia and Louisiana.
“Nationwide’s modular construction is perfect for infill projects,” said Andy Miller, president of Nationwide Homes. “Our ability to set the homes at the site for final completion means minimal disturbance to an existing neighborhood environment, a shorter on-site construction timeframe and enhanced site security benefits.”
Showcased at the IBS Show Village was the versatile Redwood Shores, shown with its Coastal Façade version, the Sea Breeze. The home’s’ flexible design extends its application to coastal regions, the mountains or general urban regions.
The entire Renew Avenue Collection makes the most of narrow-lot placement. An increasing number of urban infill projects are taking advantage of modular construction. The home model that was displayed at the IBS Show Village captured the look and feel of coastal Florida and can be modified to fit urban landscapes across the Gulf Coast, the Midwest and older, East Coast regions. The two-story modular home has many sought-after amenities and a pleasing, open design. Built with Nationwide’s HiPerformance Construction processes, the Redwood Shores features an abundance of energy-efficient features that will enable it to be certified Green and Energy Star.
