Yes, you read correctly. Many services are already included in the price of your prefabricated house. This makes building with Hanse Haus so simple, which is why we have been crowned the fairest prefabricated house manufacturer on several occasions.
Preliminary planning and price quote
Thermal insulation calculation, energy performance certificate
As a matter of course, we ensure that the requirements of the current Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV) and the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) are met.
That’s why an energy certificate and thermal insulation calculations are made for your construction project. These papers document compliance with existing regulations and contain information on the final energy demand, primary energy demand and the insulation standard of your home. If necessary, the Energy Performance Certificate can be used to apply for public subsidies.
If you want your home to meet higher Efficiency House standards (Efficiency House 55/40/40 Plus, Passive House or Plus-Energy House), we will provide the necessary documentation. Due to the high insulation standards of our prefabricated houses, we can confirm compliance with the relevant KfW standards even before the fixture consultation.
Clients who take advantage of the KfW “Energy-Efficient Building” programme for financing must have their building project checked and supervised by an authorised expert. Hanse Haus’s quality standards are recognised by the KfW, so that you as the builder do not need to call in any other experts, if at least the “near turnkey” completion level is chosen.
Hanse Haus does the structural calculations for your house and for the basement/floor slab, garage, carport or canopy, if you build these components with Hanse Haus.
Depending on regional requirements, it is usually assumed that the building project will be implemented in locations up to earthquake zone 3, wind load zone 2 (Germany except for coastal areas) and up to a snow load of up to 1.5 kN/m².
Additional requirements e.g. for the installation of a photovoltaic system commissioned by the client with another company, are taken into account and calculated individually.
For basements taken care of by the client, Hanse Haus creates detailed load and opening plans for the basement ceiling or floor slab to be given to your basement builder.
Depending on the desired level of completion and the scope of services you contract with Hanse Haus, architectural services for all the required trades are also included in the price. From basic analysis to design and the application for planning permission, your Hanse Haus architect will take care of all the necessary steps for you.
Applying for house connections
If a Hanse Haus basement or floor slab is included in your contracted scope of services, we will support you with the application for water, gas and electricity connections.
If you take care of laying the foundation yourself, we will inform you about the procedures for applying for your house connections.
Hanse Haus prepares production and execution plans on a scale of 1:50, along with an accompanying production report.
Before the fixture consultation, we will provide you with execution plans to prepare you for this appointment.
In order to document changes, you will receive revised execution plans after the fixture consultation. The plans contain, among other things, detailed drawings and information on the arrangement of technical installations, e.g. for heating, plumbing, ventilation and electricity, according to the contractually agreed scope of services.
Home fixture consultation, sampling
The Hanse Haus Fixture Centre is centrally located in the middle of Germany, with excellent transport links. If you need to undertake a longer journey, we will gladly organise an overnight stay at a nearby hotel and will cover the costs of a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner.
Seven show homes in different styles are open for you at the Fixture Centre, and can be visited any time during our opening hours – even without an appointment.
When choosing your home fixtures, you will be accompanied and expertly advised by your personal Hanse Haus furnishings consultant.
Our Homebuilders’ Centre is located right next to the production facilities. If necessary, we can invite craftsmen from all trades to attend the sampling for the fixture consultation, so that no questions go unanswered.
We work together with a large number of branded manufacturers whose catalogues you can choose from. True to our motto “My perfect home”, you are not limited to the products we exhibit. Our aim is to also fulfil special requests. You can learn more about our partners at home fixtures and sampling
We cooperate with the furniture stores of the XXXL Group, where kitchen and furniture specialists will be happy to assist you before or after the sampling appointment. On request, we are happy to include the services of the XXXL Group in our scope of services and thus in our quality guarantee.
If a client takes care of the floor slab or basement, we provide the ceiling opening plan for the basement or the details for the floor slab.
The client can provide services during the construction phase. We will be happy to advise you during the sales discussion and fixture consultation, and during the construction phase with our site supervisor.
If the delivery of the basement/floor slab is included in Hanse Haus’s scope of services, our expert site manager will arrange a preliminary meeting with the client prior to commencing the groundwork.
At the meeting, the type and implementation of the house connections – among other things – will be discussed. In addition to the client and our expert site manager, representatives of the excavation company, the basement construction company and utility companies also take part in the preliminary meeting and are informed by the client.
Construction management, supervision and support
For all contractual services provided by Hanse Haus, we assume responsibility for expert construction management including testing, house inspection and the acceptance report.
Construction site set-up
We will set up the construction site with a toilet, building waste container for Hanse Haus packaging materials and residual waste, and provide scaffolding according to the requirements of the employer’s liability insurance association – even for client-constructed basements – at no additional cost.
Assembly of your prefabricated house
We deliver your house – without any mileage limitations – to the construction site by lorry.
We also organise the required assembly crane, tools and machinery so that our assembly team can start building your prefabricated house immediately. All outer and inner walls are mortared on the underside.
Airtightness test (blower door test)
Beginning with the “near turnkey” completion level, we will check the airtightness of your house using the so-called differential pressure measurement method if necessary (for example, if your house has a ventilation system).
From the beginning of assembly until the handover of the house, Hanse Haus bears the risks for the provision of the contractually agreed services.
If a client plans to do the work himself, we recommend taking out private insurance policies that protect the client, helpers and the building project (e.g. builder’s liability and construction insurance).
All Hanse Haus prefabricated homes with a Hanse Haus basement or floor plan, beginning with the “near turnkey” completion level, receive the Gold Sustainability Certificate of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
