ORIGO WORKSHOP

Origo Workshop designs and develops sustainable modular construction systems that can be used in temporary and permanent structures. Unlike other forms modular or prefabricated construction, Origo’s systems allow customization down to the basic element, hence the name Origo, which means “origin” in Latin.

Structural elements can vary in size and length to satisfy whatever design intent. Panels are designed to be fully integrated and can be swapped out without impacting functionality. Elements can be replaced or upgraded even after construction is completed, reducing waste.

Talk to us or one of our architectural partners to see which Origo RIG system meets your needs.

RIG

Our Rapid Interconnect Geometry (RIG) system is a highly configurable construction system consisting of a full suite of modular integrated components that can be readily mixed and matched to create the buildings that meet your needs.

RIG Joint

The RIG system consists of structural I beam members that are connected by a proprietary joint with self-aligning properties. The joint has been designed to be easily scaled to fit any number of beams sizes depending on the application. Moreover, it will work with beams in any number of materials, including aluminum, steel, wood and even composites.

RIG Floor Panels

RIG floor panels are lightweight sandwich panels embedded with layers of thermal and acoustic materials. The surface finish can be specified and attached to the panel in the factory prior to being installed.

RIG Exterior Wall

Exterior panels are attached using tracks that attach to the horizontal members of the structure. The panels are usually lightweight sandwich panels with integrated thermal and acoustic properties. Higher performance panels or alternative materials may be substituted based on specifications. Panels can be finished in a variety of materials during fabrication.

RIG Interior Panels

Interior panels are sandwich panels with thermal and acoustic properties. Panels can come with integrated electrical and networking properties. Some versions also come with special tracks to easily attach specific surface finishes.

RIG Compact Panels

Depending on design considerations, it may sometimes be necessary to leave beams exposed. In these instances, the Compact series of exterior wall panels may be an option.

RIG Ceiling & Roof

The RIG ceiling and roof panels are similar lightweight sandwich panels. Internal and external facing panels have different cladding to address different requirements.

The RIG Occasion system is our most light-weight system designed for rapid deployment and removal. Light-weight does not mean limited because the system will still accept most integrated components designed for the RIG system to create an easily customizable experience that was previously not possible for temporary systems.

The RIG Habitat system is our flexible solution for affordable housing. Unlike other affordable housing solutions, the RIG Habitat system remains highly configurable and easily upgradeable. Panels can be swapped easily at any time to create an upgrade path. The RIG Habitat system allows the construction of buildings up to 5 stories.

The RIG Sanctuary system is the perfect solution to create your personal sanctuary. It has access to the most complete suite of integrated components. Materials and finishes can be easily added to meet your specifications. Work with one of our select list of architectural partners in your region to create the home of your dreams.
