housing ranks high on the
list of critical needs for people with disabilities and frailties.
To properly address this housing crisis, homes need to be
constructed and delivered rapidly and cost-effectively, while still maintaining
high quality, sturdiness, and durability. These living
environments should have the versatility to meet the requirements of
families as they change over time, and of people in
virtually any stage or condition of life.
To this end, Lightship Networks is helping develop
an innovative program to dramatically increase the availability of high
quality affordable housing that intrinsically accommodates individuals
and families with disabilities. The program involves
Lightship-orchestrated collaboration between innovative builders and
building system providers with leading non-profit housing organizations.
The housing will incorporate rapid, cost-effective, quality-controlled,
centralized construction utilizing high strength-to-weight-ratio
materials in a modular design, allowing for exceedingly strong yet
highly transportable units featuring modularity that can be arranged and
combined into several configurations. Every unit will also feature
inbuilt accessibility and universal design, assistive technology
options, and green building certification. Finally, the design will also
be architecturally flexible in terms of style and aesthetics, allowing
it to blend into many different settings.
