Module 0:“New ways to create massive amounts of qualitative living space”

This seminar supports you in developing ideas and visions how to create fast and sustainable affordable living space for all kinds of users. From low to high income.

If you are in need to provide living space to your citizens that is

  • affordable,
  • comfortable,
  • sophisticated,
  • visually appealing, and
  • achieved with reasonable costs at the same time:


The answer is industrial construction.

This seminar shows possible solutions for everyone that is in the field of creating massive amounts of living space, like developers, governments and other policy-makers that face such requirements on a daily basis.

It enhances your range of approaches and equips you with innovative tools in order to meet the urgent challenge of housing shortage.


  • Analysis of building materials for mass production of buildings
  • Implementation of these new ways
  • Different types of buildings (from low to high rise) are possible
  • Affordable housing and luxury housing -> no difference in the shell cost
  • Sustainable and intelligent concepts
  • Integrated design concepts lead to carefree building processes
  • Economic considerations

Duration: 3 hours

Module 0 is a workshop independent of the other modules


Two days’ workshop

Our 2 days' workshop gives an overview of state-of-the-art construction technology which enables you to create aesthetically appealing but nevertheless affordable living space. With industrialised construction methods you are able to build massive amounts of housing in a very short period of time: applicable to all kinds of real estate. This construction method enables you to build affordable housing and luxury housing at the same time and with the same shell costs. But success can only be achieved by an "Integrated Thinking".
