DESIGN + BUILD FOR GLOBAL MARKETS

A 2018 audit of vacant lots in New York found over 1,000 that lacked any housing.

 

In a city where affordable housing is in critical under-supply. ipHaus can help rapidly and economically leverage vacant land into New York’s housing market. 

The ipHaus technology is ideal for hard to construct in sites. 

  • Construction doesn’t require heavy plant equipment that can make narrow-lot construction difficult. 
  • Construction time 12-14 months (from construction permit to certificate of occupancy) - 40% less than vernacular construction methods.
  • 20% cheaper per square foot than vernacular construction methods. 

Utilizing a proprietary quick assemblage panel system, the construction process requires no heavy equipment for lifting and is ideal for narrow streets and high density areas.  

New York City Infill Lot Housing

Quick to Assemble 

Permanent Multi-Family Housing

The U.S. needs 7.2 million new affordable homes. High quality modular construction technology allows us to bridge the gap between 

'quality' & 'dignity',

‘temporary’ and 'permanent'

 

with faster build times and at competitive rates. 

  • Multifamily low-rise construction in one year makes ipHaus viable solution for urgent housing stock enhancement.

  • The ipHaus team provides custom design options for building & unit configurations, finishes and other variables to meet the projects needs.  

Modular Temporary Housing 

The policy shift toward private sector provision of affordable housing left both private organizations and public agencies with aging and ailing social housing stocks in need of critical repairs.

 

Between 1996 and 2015 the New York City Housing Authority spent over $6.1 million in reserving its buildings.

Multifamily low-rise construction in one year makes ipHaus viable solution for urgent housing stock enhancement and relocation projects. 

  • Quick to assemble multi-family housing allows households to be temporarily relocated to nearby, high-quality housing whilst critical repairs are undertaken. 

  • Multi-level units can be disassembled and reused, dramatically cutting carbon emissions and construction waste.

  • Minimally invasive foundation technologies to open up more sites for building quick-to-assemble modular multi-family housing.

Novel Single Family Housing Solutions 

Globally there is an affordable housing gap of 1.6 billion people, with over 440 million households living in substandard housing and so financially stretched by housing costs that they forego other essentials.

  • ipHaus single family dwelling solutions are low-cost, light-touch solutions that are fast to construct, can scale and up-cycled.
  • Uniquely, unit configurations can change as households needs shift, allowing households to start small and grow their home as household composition changes. 
  • Can utilize off-grid utilities and micro-grid power networks.

Rural Hospitality

Developments

ipHaus can provide customized products for resort and hospitality focused developments. 

 

Our in house team can customize building layouts, unit configurations, materials/finishes and much more responding to clients needs.  

  • Easy customization of interiors, finishes and fixtures, from economical eco-retreats to luxury villas. 
  • Use of minimally invasive foundation technology enables units to be built quickly and with low impact on the environment.​
  • ipHaus units plug-and-play with micro-grids and be customized to work with entirely off-grid utilities systems. ​
