The concept of modularity was seen as one of the prominent themes of this design. With advantages such as faster schedule, cheaper labor, quality control, low exposure to weather, worker safety, low material waste and low environmental disturbance, modular construction poses as a definite choice to be explored. These were weighed against some of the disadvantages of modular construction such as hidden costs for overheads, profits, design fees, transport, setting, etc. The repetitive nature of residence hall spaces such as student rooms and wet cores respond well to these aspects that define modular construction and prefabrication. The Co-Lab teams were provided with information regarding the design possibilities, specifications and restrictions in modular construction both for steel and wood and the process of construction both from a theoretical and practical perspective. Based on their individual designs, each of the teams were asked to assess the possibility of modularity and prefabrication. Each of the teams responded differently to this challenge – ranging from no modularity to complete prefabrication and modular construction of all the student rooms.
