Volo Takes Prefab to New Heights


Volo Modular is making waves in the home construction industry, thanks to its ability to offer sustainable and convenient homes with just five to six weeks’ downtime.

This prefab home builder is earning a name thanks to its approach to the design and build process for the residential and commercial markets.

Adopting a five-stage procedure, from concept and design to project management and the controlled off-site factory construction, Volo’s product appeals to the bulk home sector, including over 50’s living projects, education facilities and government housing.

CEO and founder of Volo Homes Garrick Bull said homebuyers, lifestyle communities, and even complete designed and constructed schools would receive durable and streamlined building designs with plumbing and electricity installed and ready to be connected.

“Our buildings have the same characteristics of a normal dwelling, though they can be moved from one position to another, which means they're not permanently attached to the land and therefore meet all the requirements under the Residential Parks Act 2003,” Bull said.

Volo offers a one-stop solution for the bulk housing sector.

Fully compliant under the Manufactured Homes (Residential Parks) Act 2003 and approved under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Volo Homes has already won a number of big projects in the over 50’s lifestyle and new home sectors.

“Prefabricated construction can assist in streamlining processes significantly. Our precise planning, designing and construction of community housing projects, gives us the ability to deliver projects on time and without disruptions to existing residents,” Bull said.

“We complete most of the build off-site at our factory before transporting it to the site, where it takes less than six weeks to fit off.

“With a one of our homes, as opposed to the regular build process, you could literally go on holiday for a month and come back to a brand-new home.”

Bull said there were no limits to a home as the team can work directly with the buyer on the design, or work with an appointed architect.

“We have leading home designers working in-house for us so buyers have the option of continued involvement throughout the design and construct process, or simply hand us the plans and we can start building,” he said.

Volo Homes only uses materials of the highest quality, including Hebel, an innovative building material used for floors, facades, and walls.

All houses are constructed with steel frames and are termite treated.

Our conventional building methods and construction processes are different from regular house builder,” Bull said.

“They are sturdier, as the structures need to withstand transportation, and we can get them built quicker by maximising the benefits of factory manufacturing, including working around the clock and minimising the constraints of weather.

“A dedication to hard work is essential to a promised short construction period, which is why the team at Volo Homes operates 24-7, creating longer work hours available for tradespeople seeking more than a 7am to 3pm paying job.

“As all our homes are built off-site with installation and subsequent completion only a matter of days, neighbours are affected minimally, a marked improvement on traditional construction methods.”
