Housing plays a major determining role in the health, wellbeing, education, protection and happiness of humans and can be seen as a fundamental right. No wonder that acquiring or renting an affordable house is a driving force for most people. NxtGen Houses wants to create friendly neighbourhoods where people are able to experience each moment in life.
By 2050, the United Nations predicts 65% of the world’s population will live in cities, a move that will put pressure on urban housing. As cities all over the world adapt to urbanization. Real estate construction costs have increased sharply since the mid-2000s, with differences in cost being driven by labor more than materials. There are simply not enough workers. Off-site construction is the future of the building industry and has the potential to provide a solution for more affordable rents. Industrialized constructuring reduces the actual building timelines and costs significantly, enabling to build affordable homes. Key is to organize the construction process similar to how the production of cars with standardized parts in a continuous production or assembly flow is organized.
The NxtGen Houses (NGH) construction system is a further development of NxtGen Industrial Buildings (2016) and NxtGen Kitchens & Restaurants (2018). NxtGen Houses combines the strengths and advantages of various existing construction systems with new (tech) materials resulting in a game changing industrial building system. Much research and expert interviews preceded the choices that led to our NxtGen Houses building system and a number of building experts got involved. The extra time we spend on engineering and prototyping, results in a much smoother production and lower failure cost. Our goal was to engineer smart buildings with a minimum of parts which are easy to assemble even without specific skills! Rewiring the building world to become a fundamentally better place. Building by building.
Creating Value through Innovation and provide better living to more people
NGH buildings are developed with circularity in mind and the objective to eliminate waste so that all parts and components extend their lifecycle and can be reused in following projects. This means compartmentation and standardization, primarily use sliding, shear, screw and bolt connections and avoid permanent connections such as welding, gluing and the use of concrete. This ensures that NGH buildings can easily be dismounted and reused.
NxtGen houses are easy to adapt to a new function and can be moved to another location.
