(Oxford, ME) – On the heels of securing a critical statewide Maine Housing Authority contract, Keiser Homes, one of New England’s largest modular housing providers and among the region’s most innovative green builders, this week announced the award of another significant project to supply quality, affordable workforce housing in the Town of Camden, Maine.
The agreement with the Camden Affordable Housing Organization will see the Oxford-based manufacturer provide single-family, energy efficient modular homes to the town’s Lupine Terrace housing development. Lupine Terrace, a winner of the Maine Association of Planners 2006 Project of the Year Award, has earned statewide recognition for excellence in village planning, architectural standards and for directly addressing the housing crisis in mid-coast Maine.
Earlier this year, Maine housing officials selected Keiser to replace many of the state’s aging mobile housing units with affordable ENERGY STAR rated homes – the first time a modular company had been tapped for such a substantial program. Keiser’s President says the new contracts speak both to the need for quality, affordable housing throughout the region and to the parity new modular construction now enjoys with traditional building practices.
“This is an incredibly important project that not only provides quality homes to those who need it most, but confirms for us something we’ve known for quite some time: that the quality and durability of Keiser products will match or better our site-built competition any day of the week, and for a much greater value,” said David Cuttler, President of Keiser Homes. “We are thrilled to have been selected by the Camden Affordable Housing Organization, and look forward to delivering homes that will provide residents many years of comfort and enjoyment.”
Since 1987, Keiser Homes has been a regional leader crafting energy-efficient, custom modular homes and buildings with the same or superior materials as traditional site-built construction – but in a climate-controlled facility that saves owners considerable cost and time. Keiser is a member of the R.J. Finlay & Co. family of businesses. R.J. Finlay & Co. is a New Hampshire-based full service real estate, construction and building materials firm whose diverse portfolio spans 12 companies and includes nearly 300 employees throughout the United States.
