Modular Taproot Theatre Renovation takes Shape

On 29, Mar 2013 | In News | By methodhj

SEATTLE, Washington – Taproot Theatre Company moves closer to doubling its footprint and growing its presence in the growing Greenwood arts district as it takes delivery of prefabricated modular building units which will house a new black box theatre, café, scene shop, dressing rooms, and office space.

The arrival of the building components, constructed by Method Prefab, should cause quite a stir as they are delivered in 21 modular units by semi-truck over the course of three days beginning on April 1st, for placement on the adjacent site of the former Eleanor Roosevelt Building, which burned down in October 2009. The Taproot team opted for modular construction as a way to expand into available space more quickly and cost effectively. Final outside finish details will unite the new modular components with the existing theater building by Buchanan, who will be celebrating their 1,000th job with the project.

Prefab ‘Wet Cores’ to be placed into House of the Immediate Future

On 30, May 2012 | In News | By methodhj

Seattle, Washington – Method Homes, in partnership with Miller Hull and Habitat for Humanity, is pleased to announce the installation of prefabricated “wet cores” for The House of the Immediate Future, which will be showcased during Seattle’s Next 50, a six-month celebration of the memories, impact and legacy of the 1962 Seattle World’s fair. The wet core installation will take place at the Seattle Center ‘Next 50’ Pavilion on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 1 p.m.

The project, in contrast of the futuristic and elaborate structures featured at the 1962 World’s Fair, focuses on the importance of sustainable building practices and utilizes techniques such as Net-Zero energy, rainwater harvesting, and salvaged and reclaimed materials. In addition to meeting the needs of Habitat for Humanity’s unique building model for sustainable and affordable housing, The House of the Immediate Future is intended to challenge assumptions and raise expectations of what sustainable prefab building can accomplish. Built in the Method Homes factory, the wet core encompasses all of the home’s mechanical and plumbing elements. This centralizes professional trade involvement and costs. Meanwhile, Habitat for Humanity has been building panelized walls for the exterior wall system with their massive volunteer labor force. When the wet cores are set at the final location, Habitat for Humanity will complete the building process.
