Designed for Disassembly | Designed for Adaptability | Reversed Engineering
The NxtGen Houses 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.
NxtGen Houses (Introduction) are developed with circularity in mind and the objective that all parts and components can be reused in following projects and so extend their lifecycle. This means standardize parts as much as possible, primarily use sliding, shear, screw and bolt connections and avoid virtually all permanent connections such as welding, glueing or the use of concrete. This ensures that our buildings can be dismounted and reused.
NxtGen houses are easy to adapt to a new function and can be moved to another location. Our primitives consist out of durable materials/parts with a high lifespan that can be linked but with the ability to release them again (plug-and-play). Demolition becomes disassembly and reuse.
We use easy obtainable building materials to ensure short lead times and ongoing assembly, resulting in a short building time. The materials we use are chosen carefully and have a high level of quality to ensure a long lifespan and low maintenance. Our own designed and made to order building primitives and assemblies ensure that we remain in control of the entire building process. Size and weight (transport costs and handling capability), dimensional stability (less error costs) and cost of ownership (maintenance costs and ability to replace installations) are compared and analyzed in order to build cost-effective. Assemblies and equipment can be replaced with new enhanced or improved materials in an easy way, which makes NxtGen building evergreen.
NxtGen Smart Modular Building (founded in 2015) is a spin off from our rental organization, Kessel Rental (founded in 1975), specialized in renting out temporary kitchens and restaurants: an organization with knowledge of all disciplines necessary to build a house. Much research and expert interviews preceded the choices that led to our NxtGen Houses building system and a number of building experts got involved.
