- A complete set of structural plans and calculations stamped by an engineer registered in the state of building placement.
- Adherence to appropriate State Codes & requirements.
- State review and acceptance of manufacturer’s Quality Assurance Program.
- Factory inspection of the building (one to three times during or after production) by a state-approved, third-party inspection agency.
- A state-approved label on the building, after satisfactorily completing state engineering review requirements.
- Trachte is licensed & approved to provide buildings for all states with Modular Building Programs.
