The two modular prototypes DF&A designed for the MiTek Modular Initiative represent a total re-thinking of modular construction. Among the innovations: Our sub-assembly method simplifies construction with pre-assembled kits of parts; the steel cages fold for cheaper transport; a lock-and-key system allows for easy, safe stacking; and our 3D interactive spec book activates a Revit model and stereoscopic construction photos. All of that, plus luxury interior design and a custom exterior facade that disguises the modularity and amplifies the architectural expression of the finished building.
