The major elements are built in a factory, using recycled materials. Once the materials are on site, it takes about 18 hours to assemble a unit. The overall construction cost is under £60,000 (about $120,000). To make savings while improving quality, the partners considered a wide range of options before settling on a practical way to cut on-site construction costs, by fabricating timber frames for walls, ceilings and floors in a controlled, factory environment. The combined approach of the housebuilder and architect was to design each home with two distinct zones – a ‘service zone’, incorporating bathrooms, utility space, boilers and staircases, and an uncluttered ‘living zone’ comprising bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms. The ‘working’ parts of each house – stairs, heating, ventilation, plumbing, and power, which are complex, yet highly standardised parts – are pre-fabricated, allowing the remaining ‘living’ space to be treated as a highly flexible shell. Components could then be delivered to the site as a ‘flat pack’ ready to be assembled in just 31 days, providing a huge saving on on-site construction costs, while still maintaining the quality of the finished product.
