SUSTAINABLE PREFAB, PAKISTAN
Gerard Voordes, entrepreneur and owner of Muta Sport, is an enlightened employer; a utopian like those of the 19th century. He doesn’t only want to have a healthy profit-making business, he also wants his factory in Pakistan to provide better housing for his employees.
What’s more, he wants to open a factory for biocomposite components in Pakistan. And of course he would like to construct homes for his people using this material. Taking this in to account FARO has produced a design that does justice to the wishes of the people in Pakistan, can be prefabricated easily in Pakistan and forms a prototype for this way of working.
A first prototype will be built on Texel to investigate what needs to be done in terms of finish and improvement. Texel has made a location available. The island sees this as a fantastic opportunity to give form to their sustainable ambition to be an energy-neutral island.
