Modular Homes

The first modular homes to be built by housing association Midland Heart have landed in Coventry.

The four, three-bedroom homes are situated on ‘Modular Mews’ in Foleshill and are part of a pilot scheme delivered in partnership with developers Central Site and Coventry City Council.

Construction on the project got underway at the end of last year before all four homes were craned in February following being manufactured offsite at a factory in Nueation.

Midland Heart says the properties have been built to a high standard of both design and environmental sustainability making them cost-effective to run and maintain.

Each property includes amongst other amenities an externally fitted electric car charging port and walls that can be removed so properties can be easily adapted.

Construction of the development was completed within six weeks.

Midland Heart’s Director for Development, Chris Miller said: “It’s been an incredibly interesting journey as we prepared the site and watched all four homes being built in just a couple of days.

“Modular homes are just one of the options we are exploring to deal with the effects of the housing crisis and are part of our commitment to build 2000 new homes across the Midlands over the next five years.”
