Ben is studying for a Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Building Science at Victoria University of Wellington.
He is interested in the potential for prefabrication to deliver efficient, healthy and affordable housing. His particular areas of interest are low embodied carbon systems that utilise natural materials (Modcell UK) and investigating the potential for use in the New Zealand market.
Keen to help lift the Kiwi stigma of prefab equating to unimaginative, uninspiring solutions. Ben believes highly adaptive systems that allow for mass customisation are the way forward. He is studying both Building Science and Architecture as he believe that an integrated holistic approach to the design, construction and operation of our built environment is crucial.
Cheaper, faster and better is the goal.
