We believe home-making is the greatest form of art. The FluxHouse™ is our commitment to creating homes of affordable luxury, bringing beauty and sustainability into many people’s lives. The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies helps advance prefabricated building systems by leveraging innovations in advanced materials, construction automation, connected building and smart home tech.
This is a building system designed to be sustainable in its production, construction, and use, allowing for reconfiguration and expansion of a single module to form clusters, communities and urban development.
Nearly 40% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are attributed to the design, construction, and operation of buildings. FluxHouse™ is engineered with passive house principles and a minimal number of components which are suited for large scale manufacturing process. This serves to reduce capital investment requirements, facilitate automation and drive quality. Manufacturing components in a factory has been shown to cut emissions by up to 60%, compared to conventional construction.
Enabling technologies such as IoT, building controls, robotics and digitization can now be cost-effectively integrated into the building process with reliable quality and high performance. For residents, IoT infrastructures and interfaces are designed to incorporate other smart home technologies from the outset. Smart sensors in conjunction with other devices provide real-time information about air and water quality, thermal, lighting and acoustic comfort, and overall energy consumption, so individuals can understand their homes better. Meanwhile, smart homes better connect residents by sensing, understanding, responding to and gradually anticipating needs. In addition to improving health and wellbeing, automate control over home environment can help save energy and reduce the carbon footprint.
Taking into account the entire life cycle of the building, FluxHouses can substantially reduce home ownership cost which will in turn narrow the affordability gap. Scaling for widespread adoption will have a significant impact on energy efficiency, quality of life, and ultimately enable us to deliver genuinely affordable and beautiful homes for everyone.
According to McKinsey & Company Report, The potential economic value that the IoT could unlock is large and growing. By 2030, we estimate that it could enable $5.5 trillion to $12.6 trillion in value globally, including the value captured by consumers and customers of IoT products and services. In the Home setting, adoption and impact grew faster than expected.
Potential for Economic Impact in 2030: Overall, McKinsey & Company estimates that the IoT in the Home setting could have a potential economic value of $0.4 trillion to $0.8 trillion in 2030.
