Good article on momentum with modular/pre-fab residential buildings like 12-story Arterra and MAC's 3435 Main.

“In prefab construction, that’s flipped,” she said. “Seventy percent of your costs stay on site in the finishes you select. So you can spend more for your high-end finishes versus spending it on labor costs.”

---

Another way DIRTT-built spaces save clients money, and space, is through its use of 2-inch raised flooring panels that house power and data lines. DIRTT spaces deliver data using 5-millimeter fiber cables in place of the bulky bundles of 96 copper cables used in traditional construction.

“Mariner had four IT closets (in their former headquarters),” Brocker said. “We were able to get rid of 3.5 of them (through the use of fiber)."

And, Branden said, “the cost savings on the copper they didn’t have to use was immense.”

---

But the 3435 Main project didn’t deliver everything MAC Properties was hoping for, he said.

“As we talked to the factory-built housing suppliers, they highlighted the idea that we could get better quality, faster and cheaper,” Cassel said. “We got the first one of those, superior quality — one example being the acoustics. 3435 Main is an incredibly quiet building to live in.”

MAC Properties did not achieve either a cheaper or faster project, perhaps due to its scale and the firm’s lack of experience with prefabrication.

“But we know a lot more now in terms of putting together the collaboration between the factory producer, the general contractor and us as the owner,” Cassel said. “We know more about how to assemble the team, and we know more about what works and what doesn’t in terms of the whole design, manufacture and assembly process. So we will look at more modular in the future, certainly.”
