Summary The introduction of assembly line techniques to vehicle manufacturing by Henry Ford in the early 1900s dramatically reduced production costs, improved quality and made cars affordable to all. As a consequence people’s lives, cities and society were transformed.
Many attempts have been made to apply vehicle mass production techniques to domestic housing manufacturing, but the success has been limited largely due to underdeveloped manufacturing processes, incomplete integration of building services and limited consideration of environmental performance.
This paper describes an approach that promises to revolutionize the building market in Australia by providing architect designed attractive high quality comfortable modular housing system that incorporates state-of-the-art services and controls. Costs, GHG emissions and material wastage are all substantially less than timber framed housing construction commonly used in Australia.
