Off-grid Housing Resilient to Natural Events
Currently, we are in the process of developing low-income houses with networked, off-grid infrastructure for Puerto Rico working with a non-for profit agency based in NYC. The housing is to provide 1 and 2 bedrooms, 40 m2 units for families and communities located in remote areas of Puerto Rico, where support from FEMA and local government agencies has been limited.
LOW COST WITH QUALITY
Working with Buro Happold and BNBM, we will realize 3 units which can be showcased in Puerto Rico and which additional funding can be generated. These units are low cost, easy and fast to erect (required no heavy machinery) and are hurricane resistant. The target date for showcasing of these prototypes is July/ August 2019.
These units can be erected within 1 week (not including foundation work). Through our strategic collaboration with BNBM, mass manufacturing of housing can be realized within a relatively short period of time.
