A nine-story luxury apartment in downtown Orlando, called Lake House Apartments, was built at another location and then assembled on-site, according to an article in Fox 35 Orlando.

Bill Frinfrock, president of Finfrock Construction, told Fox that the company trucks each piece of building to the location it will be erected. The pieces are like a “50,000 pound LEGO,” he told Fox.

To do this, the team first developed a computer rendering of the design. Each piece of concrete was then catalogued, and made at the company’s manufacturing facility using laser technology.

Because it is built beforehand, the entire building arrives onsite in the exact specifications needed, the article says. Knowing where everything goes ahead of time also speeds up construction and cuts costs.

According to the article, the 252 units will provide “luxury living.” Lake House is expected to open early next year.
