Citizen delivers first modular homes for tenants
Two homes have been installed in Coventry for housing association after being factory-built
The first modular homes to be produced for Citizen, the housing association formerly known as WM Housing, have been delivered to a site in Coventry.
The homes (pictured) were designed and built by Totally Modular in Cradley Heath, near Birmingham, and transported by lorry to the Littlethorpe site in Willenhall.
They were erected in 21 weeks versus the 32-week schedule for a home built using traditional methods.
The two volumetric modular homes – a two-bedroom (left) and a three-bedroom house (right) – each cost £134,000 to build, with part of the funding coming from the government’s housing delivery agency Homes England and Coventry city council.
A key aspect of the decision to use modular methods was the small size of the site, according to Richard Whittaker, Citizen’s development director: “The Littlethorpe site is small and using traditional building methods would have been too disruptive.”
