Our work explores the ecology and factories of modular construction. Similar to prefabricated construction, modular is an alternative to the traditional construction method where fabrication occurs off-site. This off-site production technique is leveraged in order to produce more efficient and consistent construction. Through our research we provide a more thorough and complete understanding of both the ecology of modular fabricators in the field and the role that their factories play in the evolving landscape of the construction industry.
