Ok, so we might be a little biased, but Prefab building is quickly emerging as a shining star among architects, builders, and consumers, as we all adjust to new ways of living, working, and spending a lot more time at home. We love the modern simplicity, sustainable building materials, and opportunities for customization that prefab designs and materials offer. But you don’t have to take our word for it, you can read all about it in Architectural Digest’s latest article, Welcome to Prefab’s Moment.

According to the article, Prefab Design is emerging as a popular response to dramatically shifting housing markets due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to architects and builders, “demand is spiking for what are often considered faster, cheaper, more flexible, and more predictable building methods.” Consumers are looking for ways to adjust their homes to meet their new lifestyle needs, whether that is working from home, building additions, or relocating all together.  Architectural Digest notes, “Prefab building in particular had already been expanding in recent years. An April report by market research firm Arizton predicted that the prefabricated building market would grow at about 8% a year between 2020 and 2025. But the recent demand for new housing has given it a push. From tiny firms to large corporations, architects and builders employing prefab say that inquiries have increased substantially since COVID-19 struck.”

Architects like The Brown Studio explain the benefits of working with Plant Prefab to construct the Palisades at Squaw; “The units are modular in construction, thereby making the construction process more efficient across all development aspects and reducing site construction cost via an expedited build process.”
