The use of "off-site construction" for a seven-floor, 28-unit apartment house in New York City lowered construction costs by as much as 15% compared to conventional building methods, according to the developer and Gluck+, the project's architect. The use of concrete-and-steel modules will also help reduce construction time; the building will take less than one year to complete, said the project team. The Stack apartment house is the city's highest modular residential building.
