Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) intend to use timber from certified forests on mainland Honduras, as part of its aim to develop a localised supply chain in a bid to make the project more environmentally-friendly. The firm is working with computational engineers AKT II to develop a "kit of parts" outlining elements needed to build Roata?n Pro?spera without material waste.

In the proposal, Roata?n Pro?spera's modules will be fabricated off-site and transported using local networks to cut back on carbon emissions, and also to prevent harm to wildlife on the site.
Residents of the complex will have access to a digital parametric software developed by ZHA's Computational and Design Group to customise the size, arrangement and furnishings of their housing module.
