ABSTRACT
The article reports on the activities of Equity Residential (EQR), one of the partners of the United States Army in the Residential Communities Initiative (RCI) or the privatization of military housing program. EQR provided the solution to the Army's problem of building bigger and better homes without sacrificing family housing amenities by using modular or factory-built product. Some of the benefits of using modular product are that homes are built in a controlled environment and molds never had an opportunity to grow.
