Prefabricated houses (industrial process)
The article focuses on the production of prefabricated houses, and on the innovation that this process can produce into the real estate market. In the past years, the most common method of building housing was the on-site method. The construction process starts with a project, which is developed by professionals and requires a certain amount of time to be completed. Once the final project is obtained and approved, is it possible to start with the actual building phase. The process required the set up of a construction site, which costs time and a large amount of money. In the next phase, the construction operated on site, is subject to various risks that can be generated by the site in which it operates, or from unpredictable events. The manpower cost is higher, because it must be highly specialized, and it has to adapt its knowledge depending on the site and the project to be implemented. Another significant economic impact on the buildings cost is generated by the transport of materials and the mechanical vehicles, needed in the construction process. With the advance of technology and the expansion of knowledge, many companies have finalized to the conclusion that the process of houses prefabrication is more efficient than the on-site construction. The various experiences developed over the years show that this increase in efficiency (both in economic and temporal terms) is moving the building business to new frontiers.
describe the tool, concept or theory and explain its purpose. The section should reflect the current state of the art on the topic
provide guidance on how to use the tool, concept or theory and when it is applicable
critically reflect on the tool/concept/theory and its application context. What can it do, what can it not do? Under what circumstances should it be used, and when not? How does it compare to the “status quo” of the standards – is it part of it, or does it extent them? Discuss your article in the context of key readings / resources provided in class. Substantiate your claims with literature
Provide key references (3-10), where a reader can find additional information on the subject. The article MUST make appropriate references to the and reference material provided in class – either incorporating it as a source, or critically discussing aspects that are missing from it but covered by this article. Summarize and outline the relevance of each reference to the topic (around 100 words per reference). The bibliography is not counted in the suggested 3000 word target length of the article.
