Prefabricated buildings can satisfy many of our customer’s needs: they are often used as temporary administrative buildings on job sites or as additional classrooms for growing schools.However, modular units can also be used to provide quick and affordable shelter for a city’s homeless population. Modular buildings are an excellent way to deal with homelessness because the units can be built at a fraction of the cost as a classic building. Prefabricated units are also created at a much quicker frequency than a traditional structure, so those who are in need can have access to shelter at a faster rate. Finally, modular units are incredibly adjustable. They are able to be placed in one location or city, and, if the needs of the city change, it can be transported with ease.
We are already witnessing how prefabricated buildings are making an impact on homelessness. Major cities are clamoring for answers, and one developer in San Francisco has offered to build 200 modular units once a compromise with unions and the city council can be reached. Modular homes in London, dubbed “Lego” homes, have been created as a short-term solution for its homeless population while they wait for more permanent housing. This particular development even has eight commercial spaces for local businesses, which helps increase awareness and bring business and employment opportunity to the area.
These developments across the world show that modular building can provide innovative solutions for many real-world issues.
