Grouparchitect is working with prefabricated modular home builder Method Homes to provide design services for a series of homes destined to be located in Fort Peck, Montana.   Based on the Option Series homes we have previously partnered with Method homes on, these three bedroom and two bathroom homes will serve as residences for a portion of over 600 people currently waiting for housing in the Fort Peck area.

The Make It Right foundation is working with the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes to initially build 20 new homes as part of a larger master plan in an effort reduce the amount of people seeking housing, and to promote a sense of community within the tribes of this rural tribal town.  The homes will serve as a local example of sustainability and aim to achieve LEED Platinum certification once completed.  Prefabrication was chosen as the most viable option for these homes for having a quicker construction time, less waste, and cost savings.
