Acton’s project consists of six two-story buildings containing twelve living units to be utilized as affordable housing for the Housing Authority. Designed with sustainability in mind, the permanent modular construction project had an original goal of achieving LEED for Homes Silver Certification. Design recommendations by Triumph construction services staff and the A&E design team coupled with modular construction methods which minimized waste through material efficiency, the project was able to achieve a LEED Gold Certification. Further proof that green modular construction can be affordable.
The project broke ground in September 2012 and completed in July 2013.
In the end using permanent modular construction, the Town of Acton has a well planned and executed affordable housing community.
