Prefab housing factory
Swedish contractor NCC has created a quite revolutionary factory for producing prefab houses. Usually 90% of construction is done at the building site. With this concept, 90% of construction is done in the controlled and automated factory environment. The assembly on site is done underneath a giant tent, so no water damage etc. NCC claims that they have cut production time for housing in half. There's a 7 minute film about the concept at their website.
