The first Bone Structure property is opening in Orange County this week. Bone Structure is a net-zero ready steel prefab system assembled onsite. As a result, it is a more environmental and low-cost construction style and, because it is steel, longer lasting than wood structures. The property, designed by Anders Lasater Architects and built by J. Kramer Corp., is a duplex located on North Coast Highway.

The North Coast Highway project was an ideal project for the Bone Structure system. It was difficult to access and had regulations that impeded construction, like rules against dumpsters. “The property was an odd lot shape, and it is a very challenging lot in terms of staging,” Marc A. Bovet, CEO of Bone Structure, tells GlobeSt.com. “You can’t bring in cranes, and you can’t have trucks sitting there for deliveries. This is one of the tremendous benefits of the Bone Structure system. It is an erector set with small parts that can be delivered easily. The structure offered the clients the ability to design a property that would take advantage of the lot while at the same time making to build within the constraints of the job site.”
