Software corporation Autodesk is partnering with Factory_OS, a modular construction startup in San Francisco, California.
With this investment, Autodesk is supporting the build out of Factory_OS’ Factory Floor Learning Center, a space for education and research on industrialized construction and changes needed in public policy. This work will be led by the Terner Center for Housing Innovation with the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley).
The investment also establishes a team to scope and plan for a new Rapid Response Factory to meet the demand of quick turnaround housing solutions following natural disasters and emergencies.
“Building on Factory_OS’ existing use of our tools, we will work together to identify new software collaborations to streamline the design, fabrication, and supply chain management of offsite construction,” said Autodesk.
