This projects objective was to develop a housing prototype for construction of 4000 single person dwelling units at Defence Force bases across Australia.
Because of the remote location of many of the sites, the project was developed to minimise on-site construction. The buildings are entirely pre-fabricated, with precast walls and floor units creating the structure and fully pre-fabricated kitchen bathroom units built in centralised locations and trucked to site.
The units had to be designed to a precise brief of accommodation of 24 square metres plus private terrace with provision for under-cover car parking. A 24 unit module was developed that was capable of being constructed from in-situ footings up and with roof in place within 2 weeks.
