Westchester Modular components make an ideal starting point for quickly and economically built group homes. Together with our local builder partners, we have helped organizations across the Northeast build student housing, nursing homes and other group living facilities. For over 25 years, we have been supplying modular group homes that offer unsurpassed value and industry-leading green credentials. Contact our team directly for more information about how prefabricated housing components can help your next project.
Anyone who has ever overseen a complex project like a new dormitory construction knows how important the right partners are to preventing delays and cost overruns. When you purchase modular dormitory housing from Westchester Modular, our team does the work of several subcontractors we have the potential to deliver a product that has plumbing, tiling, lighting and other essential components already installed. From our factory in Wingdale, NY, we oversee construction of large modular components which are shipped directly to your site in ready-to-install condition.
The recently completed Vineyard House, Inc. sober living community has officially been awarded the highest possible rating of Platinum in the US Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for homes program. The campus, which was completed in December of 2014 by Squash Meadow Construction, Inc. and Westchester Modular Homes, Inc., was certified through a rigorous rating process and achieved enough points to meet the threshold required for platinum certification.
Vineyard House was founded in 1997 to provide a temporary home for alcohol/ drug dependent persons primarily from the Martha’s Vineyard community who need a sober, stable and mutually supportive transitional environment in which to find health and independence. This new facility that received the prestigious Platinum Certification was completed at the end of 2014.
According to the US Green Building Council (USGBC), this is the first platinum certified project ever to be built in Vineyard Haven, MA. The USGBC was founded in 1993 and is a private, membership-based non-profit organization that promotes sustainability in how buildings are designed, built, and operated. USGBC is best known for its development of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.
A pioneer in green building, Westchester Modular Homes designs and builds homes and multifamily projects under factory-controlled conditions to customers’ precise specifications. These range from modest starter homes to multi-million-dollar projects in a nine-state region from Maine to New Jersey.
Modular homes are inherently energy-efficient. Westchester Modular Homes maximizes this efficiency: R-19 wall and R-38 ceiling insulation and Andersen 400 Series Low E glass windows are standard in every home it manufactures. These homes feature deep 2 x 6 exterior wall framing that accepts more insulation, and reduced air-infiltration building techniques minimize hot or cold air loss, so energy-conscious owners pay less to heat their homes in winter and cool them in summer.
Modular homes are also “green” homes. Computer-aided precision construction in a climate-controlled factory reduces waste and eliminates mold and mildew problems. Individual modules are delivered to the building site with electrical and plumbing systems installed, and may be outfitted with kitchens and bathrooms. Because modular homes are about 80-percent complete when delivered, damage to the ecosystem at the job site is minimized.
Westchester Modular Homes is an Energy Star® Partner and participates in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building program. Modular units can be built to Energy Star and LEED-Certified specifications that meet high standards for energy-efficiency and environmentally-friendly construction.
Demonstrating its commitment to environmental stewardship, Westchester Modular Homes recently outfitted its factory with highly energy-efficient “high bay” fluorescent lighting fixtures. The overall air quality improvement resulting from this energy-saving initiative equates to planting 27 trees, removing 18 automobiles from the road and saving 11,255 gallons of gasoline each year.

Many project managers find themselves faced with a difficult dilemma pay extra for leading-edge technology, or settle for a product that's inefficient and not built for the long term. With Westchester Modular, neither of these choices is necessary. Our modular group homes come ENERGY STAR certified direct from our factory, and they feature high efficiency windows, floor-to-ceiling insulation and quality construction that prevents heat loss and moisture entry. An ENERGY STAR building is 20-30% more efficient than a traditional construction, which can potentially save your organization thousands of dollars on heating and air conditioning. We can also custom build LEED-certified buildings which may qualify you for valuable tax credits.
Whether you're building a modular nursing home or dormitory housing, Westchester Modular can customize designs to your specifications. We can add ramps for wheelchair accessibility, shared bathrooms and more. Our team has been and is currently involved in several multi-unit housing projects, including modular dormitory housing, senior living facilities, hotels and more.
Since 1986, the Westchester Modular team has been changing the way people think about modular housing. Project managers throughout the Northeast have found our modular group home units to be a cost effective way to turn around large projects quickly without sacrificing quality or comfort.
