MAI Modulo Abitativo Ivalsa prototype was designed by DUOPUU and Cnr-Ivalsa Wood building design lab within a research project on sustainable buildings carried out in collaboration with Ceii Trentino and with the support of Provincia Autonoma di Trento. The goals of the project were to design and build a small wooden prototype house (about 35 sqm floor area) that can be built and prefabricated in a controlled area (factory), easily transported by truck to the final destination and finally assembled to form a real house in a few hours. The MAI prototype, when leaving the factory, was ready to be assembled and used: the heating-ventilation-airconditioning system, electric installation, plumbing, interior finishing, lights, appliances and furniture were already installed. All the construction phases in the production area have been optimised to reduce the waste of materials, control air and water pollution, and achieve a highly efficient building process with respect to the environment and the workers, too!
