The UK faces a housing crisis. There is an exponential population growth and
a housing deficit. The houses that are developed are often expensive; of poor
quality and mostly built in erroneous areas. Furthermore as the population continues
to increase added stress will be deposited on the UK’s housing and environment. Targeting the high populace in Britain through new
migration laws, post Brexit, does not necessarily address the need for a
sustainable housing solution in the immediate future, although it does have a
crucial part to play in long-term housing planning and strategy.

 Widespread concern surrounding the
rate at which new houses are being built in the UK is inadequate and will not
suffice for the current demands. In recent research from the office of national
statistics ‘2,557 new company insolvencies
occurred in the construction industry the year ending 2016, second only to the
administrative services sector’ (2017). The causes for this deficit
should be, urgently, held in high regards by authority since it is evident that
normal construction practices puts pressure on a market that is already
saturated with deficient skilled labourers and looks unlikely to meet plans, as
promised by Theresa May, to built one million new homes by 2020. A proposal for
increasing production without adding the need for more in situ labour is
looking at methods of moving manufacturing of site. This would mean the
majority of house would be manufactured in a factory. This would enable the use
of machinery, which will decrease the demand for in situ labour.

These ecosystems often deliver improved quality and certainty
in the final product. The methodology is also referred to as prefabrication and the
paradigm of prefab in the last few decades has globally industrialized. However,
it has been better implemented in some countries than in the UK such as
American and Japan.

In Faculties such as technology, design and
environment some departments within the organisation are tentative to share
knowledge with co-workers in the same institute thus a gap from when a building
is commissioned to the construction is formed. An Ecosystem that integrates and
collaborates to connect design, manufacturing and construction creates a model
that will allow prefabrication to address the housing crisis in London through
stitching the gap between the government and architecture. The housing market
is demanding an immediate need for customized Buildings that are affordable,
good quality and sustainable.
