Codes & Regulations
In New Mexico, the construction of modular homes is regulated by the Construction Industries Division (CID) – the same as with site-built homes!
Because a modular home is a residential structure, it must comply with New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC) 14.7.3, the New Mexico Residential Building Code (NMRBC). NMAC 14.7.3 applies to “all construction, alteration, relocation, enlargement, replacement, repair, equipment, use and occupancy, location, removal and demolition of all detached one- and two-family dwellings and multiple single-family dwellings (townhouses) not more than three (3) stories high with separate means of egress, and their accessory structures that is performed in New Mexico on or after January 28, 2011.”
In addition, all manufactured housing must conform to requirements set forth in NMAC 14.12.2 “Manufactured Housing Requirements” and NMAC 14.12.3 “Modular Structures.”
