Tackling the Social Housing Crisis

Modular construction has shown to not only improved areas of efficiency, but the modern method of construction was suggested within the Barker Review Interim Report, commissioned by the Chancellor and the Deputy Prime Minister in March 2003, as a rectification for the lack of housing shortages.

The final report which included 36 recommendations was released in March 2004 under 4 special sections.

1. Customer satisfaction

2. Design

3. Modern Methods of construction

4. Skills

The rise and fall in demand for housing requires rapidly built and cost-effective living accommodation. The combination of affordable passive design with renewable energy generation and intelligent systems has proven to be a more economical and environmental approach to construction.

The stigmatism of modular builds is something associated with the fundamental stages of modular, whereas we can provide houses that fit the local aesthetic, and not something ‘cheap and ugly’.

Our in-house design team has over 38 years-experience designing a multitude of modular for various purposes. Through the utilisation of existing skills and making our business scalable and accessible to councils and districts to really maximise the output enabling us to tackle the housing crisis.

With the costs of living at the utter upmost, modular builds are more energy efficient, meaning lower bills and a healthy means of living. The synonymous, smooth development process provides our clients with a systematic design to engulf the social crisis with durability. The safety of the users of the builds are paramount, emphasising durability throughout the design regarding storm, thermal, fire and technological performance.

To round things up – modular construction could make a significant difference to the housing, and energy crisis and help create high quality, affordable homes to those that need them.
