In this report, we are aiming to find the best construction alternative to provide housing to the homeless community of Multnomah County in Oregon. The goal is to identify the most beneficial construction process through an economic analysis. In conjunction with existing projects such as “Safe Rest Villages” that are working on offering services and solutions, the plan is to reduce the county’s houseless population by 50% over a time period of 10 years. The analysis includes gathering data about the community, but also calculating the costs and benefits of three alternatives - 3D Printed houses, tiny homes, and prefabricated houses -, as well as identifying funding opportunities and budgets, and calculating and comparing the present worth value of our alternative under different circumstances and scenarios.
