Step 2. Proposal and Preliminary Design
R3 will provide you with a detailed proposal and contract for the design of the project that will take you through construction documents ready for permitting.
Step 3. Design Feedback and Permitting
R3 works with you to respond to feedback from approval entities on the site and unit specifics and achieve permitting on the project.
Step 4. Construction Contract
After we get you through the permitting process, we either recommend utilizing an existing contractor partner or manage the bid process to put the project out for bid, particularly for ADUs build on site. While the cost of our manufactured units built off site is known, the site development cost for the village can vary considerably depending on site conditions and access to utilities.
Step 5. Construction Phase One
While our factories are building the manufactured units offsite, our onsite construction teams are engaged in doing the site work.

Once the housing units are delivered on site, they are placed on foundations, connected to utilities, and the final finishes are completed.
