Developers responded to Seattle’s growing need for affordable housing by building this 49-unit multi-family project at a cost-effective price with wood-framed modular construction. Using this highly efficient construction process, builders took prefabricated, stackable modular living units, built with wood at an off-site location, and assembled them quickly and efficiently on site. The process shortened the construction schedule for this 49,925-square-foot project to just two weekends. Off-site fabrication also contributed to construction quality; each N-Habit module unit was manufactured in a controlled factory environment, which protected interior finishes from weathering. Fire retardant-treated Douglas-fir framing was used in the exterior wall assemblies, which provided an economical structural solution to meet the Type III construction requirements. The project includes five stories of wood-frame modular units above a two-story concrete podium.
