According to Z-Modular's website, the company builds each apartment "module" off site and ships them to the job site to be stacked and finished.

Benavidez described Z-Modular's construction process as "unique."

Z-Modular built each apartment module in Killeen in 2021, Benavidez said.

"They bring [the apartment modules] here and attach it to the site. The process is truly unique with the multifamily industry, and Greystar is proud to manage this unique community in San Marcos," Benavidez said in an email to Community Impact.
