Modular building is quicker and more efficient than traditional house building, delivering homes in a matter of weeks rather than years to consistently high standards. Legal & General (L&G) has, according to its official press release, revealed its first turn-key modular housing prototype.

 

Located outside its 550,000 sq ft factory in Selby, near Leeds, the prototype is a two-storey, two-bedroom home. 

Exploring a range of designs, L&G expects to deliver its first homes in the first half of next year.  The Leeds site is building the capacity to produce thousands of homes per year across 8 production lines, employing several hundred local people.

This is achieved by building precision-engineered homes in a factory environment, ensuring accuracy of build, in dry controlled conditions, using state of the art methods and materials.

The manufacturing process is highly energy efficient and will be carried out by a stable trained workforce.

Constructing the homes from Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), delivers further environmental benefits by storing 1 tonne of CO2 in every m3 of CLT used in the construction of each home.

This ensures an economically viable and sustainable solution to deliver much needed capacity for the industry.
