Industry Overview

 

Manufactured housing being set

Factory-built structures have evolved dramatically over the last eighty years from roots in the travel trailer industry of the 1920’s, through defense worker housing in the 1940’s, and the mobile homes of the post-war era. The trend in the industry has been an evolution from travel trailer to custom housing and buildings on permanent foundations.

 

 Factory-built housing and non-residential building today has more in common with its site-built counterparts than the travel trailer. The industry has a robust manufacturing and delivery system that provides custom-built homes and non-residential buildings to meet the needs of a variety of customers. The advantages of factory-built structures include:

 

  • Shortened overall construction time
  • Inherent efficiencies and quality control of assembly line manufacturing
  • Customized design capabilities
  • Decreased overall development costs
  • Sophistication in use of green and energy-efficient processes
  • Colorado employment and economic development

 

Responsibilities

 The Colorado Division of Housing, Housing Technology and Standards (HTS) Section supports, licenses, and regulates the residential and non-residential factory-built industry in Colorado. This includes the registration and certification of manufacturers, dealers, and installation professionals statewide in Colorado. In addition, the HTS Section administers the state’s manufactured housing consumer complaint process, provides support for the adoption, enforcement and compliance with the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), and provides technical assistance concerning lead-based paint, mold and asbestos in affordable housing projects.

The Colorado Division is guided by Colorado Revised Statute (CO Revised Statute Title 24-Article 32-Part 33) and a number of program specific resolutions and rules. The specific procedures, resolutions and rules for each of our programs can be found in the Programs section.
