BOISE, Idaho–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Prefab Logic, in conjunction with Autovol™ ownership, is leading the
development of a revolutionary, first-of-its-kind factory that will set
an entirely new benchmark for automated volumetric modular construction.
The factory will be based in Idaho’s Treasure Valley, and will operate
under the name Autovol. The Autovol factory will establish best-in-class
standards for a new category of smart construction.
The Autovol factory will be located on a 52-acre site on Star Road in

volumetric modular innovation, Prefab Logic helps factory owners and
developers design, develop, and run volumetric modular construction
factories, with several other major factory projects completed and in
the works. Once Autovol is developed, Prefab Logic will foster a network
of affiliate factories and share key automated construction technology
and learnings gained.
“Autovol will open up with automation far beyond what’s being done in
any modular factory today. It’s Construction 3.0,” Murdock said. “Prefab
Logic experts have worked-in, designed, operated, and studied today’s
best-in-class modular factories worldwide. We’ve enjoyed our role as
modular pioneers, and we’re thrilled with what this next pioneering
phase will do for communities that need affordable housing as well as
developers and factory owners ready to change the game.”
Construction preparations at the Autovol site began in October, 2018.
The factory is set to be operational in early 2020.
