Problem or Opportunity
The European prefab house market is growing 7-9% every year since 2012. The reasons for this are demand for smarter and cheaper building processes shortage of qualified labor reliability for time and money estimates More than that there are popping up several projects in this area: Last year Amazon invested 6.7 million dollars in Plant Prefab. This year Node housing startup was presented at Y Combinator Demo Day.
These are the signals for the total escalation of the prefabrication trend in construction.
Genuine idea of prefabrication was to simplify mounting and dismantling. But something went wrong and now you need a crane, several people, certified electrician and quality control officer at the installation sites. And after all these activities your wall prints might not match! These technologies are getting too old.
