Windigo's Faculty Housing Village design for a private school in Massachusetts has made a lot of progress over the past 6 months. Four new single-family and two-family homes have been constructed to accommodate the needs the school and its growing number of incoming and long-term faculty. From design to near completion, we're here to walk you through the construction process and to show you where the project stands today!
Sitework began during the summer, as earth was excavated and foundations were poured. During the same time the geothermal wells were constructed in order to provide a sustainable heat source for the housing complex.
In Massachusetts the individual prefabricated segments were unloaded from trucks and hoisted into place using cranes and on-site workers.
By using a modular system for construction, the amount of on-site work was greatly decreased. Once all the individual segments were pieced together, contractors worked to fasten and seal the seams in the units. Later, porches for each home were constructed and the Hardi Board siding was installed.
The majority of the interior spaces were already completed when the modular homes arrived at the construction site. This included windows, base molding, hardwood floors, kitchen cabinets and lighting fixtures.
As the home’s interior nears completion and is cleaned up, we are now able to see the wood accents of home including doors, flooring, and moldings. Many windows provide views to the surrounding landscape and campus and make the interior feel bright and spacious.
