A group of third year design students at Otago Polytechnic are collaborating with the Blueskin Bay Resilient Communities Trust to develop a sustainable, modular, transportable home that addresses issues of the sea level rise and flooding.

A prefabrication solution fits well with the sustainability aspect as it tends to reduce material waste, reduce carbon emissions from transportation to site, maximize efficiency of the construction schedule due to all weather building capabilities, along with a potentially stronger stucture due to the inherant requirements of ability to transport by truck and be craned onto site.
