ARCH 530 - Evaluating Eco-MOD

The seminar focuses on the evaluation of the ecological, prefabricated and affordable housing units.  The students in the seminar work individually or in small teams to analyze the prototypical homes by:  assessing the environmental impact of the design and the fabrication of them; designing and installing a building monitoring system; creating a post occupancy evaluation survey for the occupants; assessing the positioning of the ecoMOD homes in the modular housing and affordable housing markets; assessing the affordability of the units; assessing the viability of integrating the homes into other neighborhoods in the area; creating a business and marketing plan for taking the project to scale; and preparing a collective final report that synthesizes the research of the entire evaluation team.
