Dynamic Modularity: A New Approach to Off-site Construction
More InformationShow full item record
The goal of this thesis project is to examine the several possible ways that a single-family residence can be built using various forms of off-site construction in order to determine which methods are the most suitable. There are already many methods of off-site construction, most of which can be classified into a few groups. Those methods include prefabricated construction, modular construction, as well as three-dimensional volumetric construction. Today’s construction-related work force is facing a shortage of skilled laborers which is in turn, resulting in tighter budgets and tighter work schedules. The methods explored in this thesis will aim to resolve these conflicts in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
