Zero defects are the primary battleground  between traditional and modern  construction methods. A relative  concept, zero defects is, however, a  target that the construction industry  has set for itself. Primary  considerations are structural stability  and keeping the water out. Proper  functioning of services, components,  fixtures, and fittings are essential.

Energy and sound performance are  also vital, as well as issues of safety,  access, and security. This is a  campaign which will be fought in  years to come… and in the meantime  here is another prefab  scheme  which feature’s in these  skirmishes.

Mobile Modular (MoMo) is a  research development project for a  relocatable system of mass housing  constructed from specially fabricated  shipping containers. This type of  system allows flats to be erected  speedily on short-life sites and to be  demounted and re-assembled in  different configurations on other sites  in the future.

The key objectives:

Remove MoMo apartments from a  site where housing has been provided  for 5 years.

Refurbish Each module at the  supplier’s yard or an alternative  temporary site.

Re-locate The apartments in any  new configuration to provide  decanting, short-term housing,  permanent apartments. This type of  system can also become a  permanent housing solution.

Originally commissioned by the  Peabody Trust, after feasibility stage, the team was invited to take the  project forward with their own  initiative. The team formed a  consortium with the aim of developing  a prototype to  demonstrate  the principles, and to market the  MoMo scheme as a one-stop shop  package to interested parties.

I want to help you to see news events as starting points for constructive conversations. I seek to cut through the froth of the political spin cycle to underlying truths and values. I want to be so focused on progress that together we can provide a credible and constructive counter-narrative to the hopelessness-, anger-, and fear-inducing brand of discourse that is so pervasive in the news.
