Chinese factory home and office builders are targeting world markets, including “North America.” Western style literature uses key buzz words: low cost construction, green building, sustainable, easy transport and rapid installation. They build to Europe’s CE standards, Australia’s AS and the UL standards for North America. They produce container houses, prefab and modular house construction. Offices and housing for mineral and “oil camps,” power station, civil facilities are part of their offerings. The homes are shipped in containers. 2 man teams are said to be able to assemble the home in two days. Some floor plans resemble single section HUD Code configurations. The homes can be single or multiple levels. Some look like HUD Code multi-sectional manufactured homes once erected and installed.
