GREEN PREFAB

The Modules – a 72-unit student apartment building near Temple University – took 14 months to complete, from the beginning of the design process to move-in. The five-story building was manufactured off-site and assembled out of over 80 prefab boxes that were brought to the site and stacked on top of a concrete and steel plinth. The building is the largest wood-frame modular project in Philadelphia, and one of the largest prefab LEED-rated multifamily structures in the U.S. The project features a 15,000 SF green roof, a bicycle garage, and a fiber cement rainscreen facade system. The building massing maximizes density and access to light and air, while working within the dimensional constraints of an urban site and prefab construction methods.
