Architect and U.S. product director for Modulous, a construction technology firm specializing in affordable housing, Eva Talbot says that modular building is a sustainable and practical way to address the global housing crisis. Modulous’ off-site construction not only reduces total production time, but its data-driven design also offers a level of quality assurance that speeds up the permitting process, Fast Company reports.

Modular houses constructed by Modulous are delivered much faster than traditional homes, and they’re also more sustainable thanks to the company’s fine-tuned automated process. Talbot believes that while digitization hasn’t played a substantial role in new housing construction across the U.S., its time is coming soon thanks to trailblazers like Modulous.

"We believe that all humans should have access to sustainable, affordable, safe homes. And we know the best way to do that is to digitize the process and take an asset-light approach, which lets us enter much smaller markets and target places around the world that need housing most critically."

"Repeatability is not well supported at the software level, and that’s why the digital solution we’re working on is so important to us. The desire is there across the industry, and once the tools are available, it’s really going to take off."
