Positive Homes and ilke Homes partner for zero-carbon housing project

ilke Homes has delivered nine zero-carbon homes for SME developer Positive Homes.

The properties were assembled off site by the modular manufacturer at its factory in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.

ilke Homes used the latest digital technologies and advanced manufacturing methods to improve air-tightness, the quality of homes and reduce energy consumption.

The properties were delivered to Positive Homes’ site in Newark, Nottinghamshire, and have an energy performance certificate rating of A.

Both companies have received funding from Homes England as the government strives towards a net-zero economy.

Dave Sheridan, executive chairman at ilke Homes, said: “Given the enormity of the climate change challenge, it is crucial that as an industry we make determined efforts to shift towards a far more sustainable approach. 

“If we are to get serious about tackling the climate crisis, then off-site manufacturing will have to play a much bigger role.”

Martin Valentine, managing director at Positive Homes, added: “Homes England’s accelerated access to funding and direct assistance to SMEs builders will continue to allow developers, such as ourselves, to deliver sustainable homes at speed across Britain. 

“Improving SMEs’ access to land and finance will also have far-reaching benefits in local communities as employment opportunities increase while also supporting supply chains.”
