Could Modular Building be the future? You decide.
By: Matt Jones

It’s no secret that I’m a pretty big advocate of innovation within the trades, which is why I was really excited to learn about modular building.

Now before we go on I need to clarify something. No, we’re not talking about living in shipping containers.

I’m always looking out for people and companies that have developed a cool angle on an existing product, or service. Here are another couple of episodes that have a really cool innovative spin:

I stumbled across ArchiBlox on an Instagram post a number of months ago (credit to the folks at Green Elec) and I was very impressed with their product.

Imagine being able to build a home from spec, have it built off site and then have it delivered to location on a truck and installed. Sounds crazy, right?

In this podcast, I do my best to dive as deep as possible within a limited time to ascertain the pro’s, con’s and processes of modular building with Bill McCorkell of ArchiBlox.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
