THE FUTURE OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING
Start-Ups That Make Affordable Housing
Anna Domanska

When we say affordable housing, we mean the kind of accommodation which is affordable for people with a median household income or below.

This income is as the one rated by the national government, a local government or by a recognized housing affordability index.

In the field of housing, nowadays, affordable housing is much in demand. Also, many start-ups are primarily devoted to creating cheap houses for the public. Some of these firms include:

Iron Matrix

Modular Housing

Building modular homes result in solving affordability, weather-dependence as well as delaying the challenges of the construction industry across smart cities. The cast, time, and flexibility of construction are mostly achieved through automated in-house modular housing manufacturing of the main structural components, offsite labour flow, and quick module-by-module assembly. Iron Matrix from Perth, Australia, is one such firm that indulges in affordable housing. It manufactures configurable steel frames and replaces the conventional methods and cladding materials with solar panels to create efficient construction modules for the people. This way, the result, and houses suit the personalized needs of the customer and requires only two people to install without any additional heavy equipment.
