ecological, modular and Low Cost Housing prototypes. The goal is to demonstrate the environmental potential of prefabrication, and to challenge the modular social housing and manufactured prefab housing industry in the Zimbabwe to explore this potential.
Working with non-profit Low Cost Housing organizations, the built Modular prefab homes will be sold to low-income families with subsidies for down payments and financing. The first completed house is currently being evaluated as part of a process to determine the environmental impact of the Low Cost Housing during their life cycle; perceptions of the prefab modular homes by the owners and neighbors; the energy efficiency of the design and equipment; the feasibility of their transfer to the modular Low Cost Housing industry; the life cycle costs; and the financial viability of taking the prototypes into production. The results of the evaluations will influence later designs, and the evaluation methods and recommendations will be made publicly available.
