RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS / Pre-fabricated Housing
CLIENT: Private

The project investigated the business case for the off-site manufacture of lightweight steel frame houses complying to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.

A highly insulated panel system was devised with pre-manufactured pods providing kitchen and bathroom facilities. Foundations were also pre-manufactured with mini-piles and incoming services prepared before delivery to enable a rapid construction.

Just in time manufacturing, storage, shipping and construction strategies were considered to provide a fast build low cost product desirable to housing associations and developers.

A range of components were proposed to enable different combinations of materials and renewable energy provision to allow construction to meet the contextual and environmental constraints of any site.
