Captivated by Prefab

New, 1 comment

Brooklyn may get the world's tallest prefab structure: To cut costs and save time, New York developer Bruce Ratner is looking at building his 34-story Atlantic Yards project via a prefabrication method, according to the New York Times. Ratner was of those who "recently traveled to Europe to talk to builders involved with what is currently the world’s tallest modular building: a 25-story dormitory in Wolverhampton, England, that was built last year in less than 12 months. Mr. Ratner has also become captivated by a YouTube video depicting the assembly of the 15-story Ark Hotel in China in a matter of days." [NYT]
