While researching yesterday's post about Modular 3, we noticed more prefab projects by Studio 804 at the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Planning. Students in the program have used prefab since 2004.
In an effort to work as expeditiously as possible, we employ methods of prefabrication, building in modular units in Lawrence and shipping the final product to its final destination. This process limits construction waste, requires unique design solutions, and most importantly, allows students to continue to live in Lawrence throughout the process.
Interesting to note:
All aspects of the building process, with the exception of the licensed trades (electric, plumbing, and heating/air conditioning), are carried out by the students over the course of a single semester. This includes everything from initial design to finished construction and documentation.
