Construction Trend: Prefabricated Housing

Given the increased costs of owning and building ones home around the world, prefabricated housing is on the rise as it offer home owners the ability to have their own home and at an affordable price. For example the headline photo in this article features a pre-fab home call the Y-Cube, retailing for just $US50,000.hom22

The above example in Spain features a lust forest design on its exterior and is kept water light with the galvanized steel roof. This model shows how prefabricated homes don’t have to be all the same, thanks to customization of such little details and can actually be quite striking.

With a remarkably different design but equally impressive take on the concept of prefabrication the picture below shows a Brazilian Architects newest design out of Sao Paulo which not only protects residents from the sometimes harsh tropical forest climate but also allows for adequate ventilation and sunlight through its prefabricated galvanized steel shutters; something much needed in this unique environment.


Shanghai Metal Corporation offers steel in a multitude of forms that can be used to satisfy the applications mentioned above. These include galvanized steel coils, strips, sheets, plates, wire, pre-painted steel, roofing material (in a number of profiles) as well as steel grating, stainless steel and copper.
