NJ Developer Discovers the Beauty of Going Modular

The Westminster at Madison in NJ is a multi-family project by Richard Romano, of Royal Wave Development.  Richard, an award-winning builder, has been constructing single and multi-family homes, townhouses, and commercial buildings throughout New Jersey for 36 years.

Romano chose the project location due to its close proximity to the New York City commuter train service, Madison’s historic downtown, and other local attractions.   He chose to use modular construction because he knew it was the best way to control costs and bring the project to completion faster, without sacrificing quality.   The modular building process allows builders to complete projects in a fraction of the time it would take using site-built construction, thereby offering a quicker return on investment.


For phase 2, a thirty two thousand square foot, three story condominium building; Richard worked with Innovative Design & Building Services.  IDBS is the commercial building arm of Excel Homes. 

IBDS employs the top large scale projects specialists in the modular industry.   IDBS provided the modular condominium building to Royal Wave through the Excel Homes manufacturing facility in Liverpool, Pennsylvania.  The building consisted of 39 modules or boxes.   These boxes came together to form a 13 unit building.  This building offers spacious condos which feature single floor living, open floor plans, and are loaded with high end amenities.

Romano is a firm believer that modular construction is the way to go if you want to be successful. He pushed IDBS and Excel Homes to provide many things that some builders might just do on-site.  By allowing the modular manufacturer to do as much work as possible, Romano was able to focus his attention on the finish details of the units.

Here are pictures of the completed project. Great job!

Looks like a great finished product. Good job to the builder and the factory. This is a building that all involved with should be proud of their work.
