The square foot cost estimated for an RPA | Ecocor model home is indicative of a “turnkey project,” meaning the price estimate includes all that is required to take occupancy of your prefabricated Passive House.
For contractors or homeowners who may desire to manage completion of a home, the cost is broken down into two line items:
The first line item is for The Ecocor Shell, which includes the raft slab foundation, exterior wall panels, interior walls and doors, the ventilation system, the roof, air-sealing and insulation, windows and exterior doors, siding and exterior trim, equipment rental, travel and transportation cost, and consulting cost.
The second line item is for Elements Provided by Others (local contractors, owner/builders, etc.). This line item includes concrete and rebar, standing seam metal roof, interior finishes, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and the ventilation system installation as well as a number of miscellaneous construction costs.
The estimates provided are based upon average construction cost in the Northeastern United States (regional cost will vary). As with all types of new home construction, the homeowner may decide to alter certain design elements or select fits and finishes that have not been quoted.
