From the Paper:

"Construction is something that has always been with society. From the first primitive men that worked at creating huts and other dwellings to live in to the high-rise condominiums and million-dollar mansions that are built today, there has always been the need and the desire to build. Originally, it was a job that only men did, but there are female construction workers now, too, and there have been for some time. Some see this as a lowering of standards, while others see it as progress. The same is true of prefabrication. While many believe that this type of construction is not as secure or as long-lasting as 'traditional' methods, others feel that there is much that can be done with prefabricated buildings.
From the prefabricated buildings that were built in Britain during World War II until now much has changed, and all of this will be discussed in Chapter Two where the literature is reviewed. Despite the rising interest in prefabricated buildings and housing, however, there are still many that either do not like this method of construction or do not understand it. Many still think of it as mobile homes, or 'trailers' and do not realize the benefits that can come from other methods of prefabricated buildings. Prefabricated housing does not have to mean mobile homes. It can mean modular homes as well, or any home or building where part of the construction is done off-site and the pieces assembled on the job site."
