The coronavirus pandemic has revived the prefabricated housing sector, which has been growing in recent years thanks to industrial construction. Over the past year, new real estate development projects with several houses have been designed and built.
Mighty Buildings, a California-based company specializing in 3D prefabricated houses, has witnessed this increased interest in the real estate sector. This year, it has introduced a new 3D-printed community with developer Palari. It will be built on a two-hectare land plot in Rancho Mirage, California. The companies will invest $15 million to build 15 prefabricated houses that will also be equipped with solar panels to create a zero-energy community.
These houses consist of three bedrooms, two bathrooms and backyards with terraces and swimming pools. In addition, there are other configurations with additional housing or appliances such as hot tubs and outdoor showers. Moreover, the solar panels can be supplemented with Tesla batteries and electric vehicle charging ports. Prices for these individual houses will range from $559,000 to $950,000.
Cube Companies is about to build the first houses of nine prefabricated industrial construction projects in Las Galeras, a luxury residential complex in the municipality of Oleiros, near the city of A Coruña. Seven of the nine houses have already been sold, and the owners are due to receive the keys in June.
One of the houses, which has not yet been sold, has an area of 192.6 sq. m. with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. In addition, there is a large open-layout living-dining room with several exits to the garden from this space. The total area of this project is 324 sq. m. It costs 465,000 euros.
The Freehand Arquitectura studio has presented a project for Madrid aimed at caring for the environment and focused on the construction of a space where it will be pleasant to live. It is a development of prefabricated houses, which makes it possible to abandon the expensive manual construction process and replace it with industrial production and installation ones. "We want to achieve a lower construction impact on the environment," explains the studio.
