The proposal is a constructive system which adds an extreme level of resiliency and adaptability in fast construction residential buildings. For example, a building could start its life as an emergency shelter for people who needs reaccommodating in case of a pandemic or natural disaster. However, when the emergency is finished that building could adapt its use to new needs and be reutilized for future scenarios such as residential buildings with a first floor made of commercial services.
The proposal is based on the design of modules composed with a squeletic structure that is made of LVL beams and glulam columns. These modules are covered with non-loadbearing interchangeable wall panels which allows to create different space configurations inside the building. By adding and retiring non-loadbearing wall panels, internal space configuration is very varied and allows several different uses for adapting the building (or parts of the building) to new functions.
Modules size allows them to be made off-site and then transported to the construction site where they are placed on top of each other generating different modular configurations. This set of modules is located on a base of helical piles which can form the foundations of a building quickly.
