QUON modern modular prefab
QUON Modular is the prefab housing work of Australian Architect Andrew Maynard. Fabrication has commenced on his first project in Borogrove, Victoria, so this is the real deal.
QUON is based on a system of breaking a house down into modules for each living activity in the house, multipurpose module, bedroom module, bathroom module etc. A house can then be custom designed to suit a clients requirements with as many modules as required and configured to suit the site, orientation and topography.
The QUON website claims the modules average a 6 star energy rating, about as good as it gets at the moment. The actual project they are fabricating in Victoria is claimed to achieve just under 8 stars, putting it up there with worlds best practice.
