Homelessness in America currently affects over 500,000 people in 2021. A powerful tool in combating homelessness is making available low and no-income housing that provide basic amenities, helping people get back on their feet.
LMH Housing Program
At Ecobaun, we are construction experts with decades of experience delivering construction development on behalf of government and private industry.
We programed the LMH model based on a simple premise.
Lowest cost per unit.
Meet housing standards.
Built-in flexibility with onsite module replacement.
Built for short or long term living.
We began this effort after understanding the inherent government issues hampering suitable low and no-income housing such as total cost, rezoning land use, delivery time and reliability. We designed around providing safety, privacy, bed, toilet, shower, sink, kitchenette and highspeed internet.
LMH is uniquely designed portable housing that provides the basic living requirement. Each LMH Unit starts by retrofitting a hardened steel container then inserting prefabricated “living modules” end to end. The living modules come in a variety of sizes and layouts. Prefabricating modules ensure a higher quality and (onsite) easy replacement for maintenance and unit upgrades.
We intended the LMH to be installed as a “Village” wherever this type of housing is required. LMH village plot sizes will vary depending on available space and needs. And the LHM can be stacked as 2 story housing with a minimal footprint.
LMH is high quality housing at lower cost with fast delivery and setup. As an example, a 32-unit LMH village fits into a 40’ x 110’ footprint and takes about 10 days to setup. (Check out our animation)
LMH also includes zero carbon footprint options for water and power.
Working with Cities
Ecobaun will aid agencies in planning villages and can conduct feasibility review for unit placement and hookup, etc. Ecobaun will then deliver and assemble the LMH village complete. Prior to delivery, the site is prepared by installing utility connections and foundation pads. Cities will provide all local utilities i.e. water, sewer, power and communications.
We then work with facilities management for system operation and maintenance training. LMH villages can then be maintained and coordinated for local support and work programs.
Ecobaun will work with cities to provide total package costs depending on program needs. Manufacturing costs are paid either through direct purchase or via a tax-deductible contribution on behalf of corporate sponsors.
We feel the corporate sponsorship program will become a viable source for underwriting these villages. Through direct corporate sponsorship, the LMH village is “branded” on behalf of the corporation. These branded villages are then customized with the corporate logo, company colors, etc. Depending on partnering programs, Companies may setup internal volunteer programs while promoting the corporate commitment to the community.
It is now possible to provide mission critical design requirements a fraction of current housing cost and regulation.
LMH housing is simple and reliable transitional housing. Our design and program will save lives while reducing overall government cost and impact.
We will team with cities growing LMH villages organically and providing wide area distribution. Overall lower cost and ease of delivery will make the LMH a natural choice for housing.
Our core belief is in combating this crisis is to preserve the dignity and security of affected people. LMH housing will revolutionize the approach to low and no-income housing.
LMH Housing is..
Safe and reliable housing, getting people into a safe productive environment, critical for successful reintegration into common routines, holding down jobs, etc.
Transitional, scalable and readily deployable. Housing can be provided closer to affected areas.
LMH allows individuals and families the platform required for transition back to a normal life.
Living module supplies the same design program requirements for typical housing including hardened shelter, AC, privacy, security, bathroom, bed, storage, desk and communications.
Delivered at a fraction of current housing delivery costs. LMH prefabricated living modules can be swapped out in place.
