Constructing a building usually takes years -but it doesn't have to. Ten Fold Engineering, a UK-based company, creates prefabricated buildings that can be set up in eight minutes. All you need is a drill for the finishing touches.
These customisable buildings measure 689 square feet and can be used as homes, offices, shops, classrooms, and any other type of small space or structure needed. Inside the building, walls can be adjusted to create an interior layout that best meets your needs. All it takes to begin the formation process is the touch of a button.
Ten Fold Engineering’s prefab buildings can be stacked and connected in several different combinations to make structures with multiple storeys and interior units. The ability to collapse them back down and move them by lorry from one location to the next makes them an ideal option for temporary offices, seasonal use buildings, and even disaster relief housing. Even when folded, these buildings can store furniture inside them.
According to the company, a Ten Fold unit arguably has a longer lifespan than a traditionally constructed building. The durable and expertly formed steel chassis and strong parts can, if properly maintained, last indefinitely.
