June 24th, 2013 Comments off

A humanitarian solutions company for refugees of the Syrian conflict has built 1,000 modular homes, in addition to modular schools, hospitals and mosques on the border with Turkey. Modular and Mobile Solutions of Ras Al Khaimah, an emirate that is part of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) located on the east side of the Persian Gulf, says the two-room with a wash area homes are large enough for a family of six, while the schools can accommodate 1,600 students. As informs MHProNews, Ben Long, managing partner of Modular and Mobile, says, “We prepare the panels and ship them to the Syrian border. We managed to build our project in four months. It is like a piece of jigsaw. It’s pre-cut, slotted together and tightened.” The company intends to open an office in Dubai at the International Humanitarian City.

Daily Mercury reports from Australia, housing solutions company Tektum has developed a modular house with two to four bedrooms, 80% complete when it leaves the factory in one and one half standard shipping containers, and occupancy-ready within several days. The homes feature solar water heating, double-glazed windows, rain water recycling and compact fluorescent lighting. Sydney-based Tektum also offers a mine accommodation option that divides the home into three units, attracting attention from coal mining companies seeking better accommodations for their employees. MHProNews has learned the modular homes have earned a six-star NatHERS (Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme) rating, similar to LEED certification.
