Partnership Brings Prefab to Boston

Abington, MA – KR Architecture & Interiors, an Abington-based architectural firm, has joined the Module Design Partner (MDP) program to bring modular, attainable, infill housing to Greater Boston.

This new initiative, launched by the Pittsburgh-based prefab homebuilding company Module earlier this year, allows architects from various cities throughout the country to be trained on Module’s Zero Energy Ready Home product, and on using off-site construction as a delivery method. This program offers a new way for outside architects and Module to work together to bring more housing supply to markets in need.

Architects in the program hail from Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, California, Utah, Massachusetts, and Washington. As a result of the program, Module will deliver its first home to a customer outside Pittsburgh later this year.

Module uses off-site construction to produce well designed, energy-efficient, highly functional homes that will last 100 years. “With the demand for housing, especially in urban areas, the Module solution promises to be a good one for our region,” said Krista Manna, principal at KR Architecture & Interiors. “KR Architecture and Interiors is pleased to partner with Module and help bring affordable and attainable housing to this market,” she said.

“By onboarding Module Design Partners in other parts of the country, we can expand our impact beyond Pittsburgh, help those architect-partners diversify their customer-base, and put more Module homes in the hands of families looking for a sustainable solution for new construction,”  said Brian Gaudio, CEO of Module.
