The modular housing company will be supplying the homes directly to Vistry as part of the latter’s wider regeneration project of the 21-acre site, which will include 346 homes, in addition to retail and start-up business units, a community building, and extensive green spaces.
Vistry chose modern methods of construction (MMC) for part of the housing development because of the energy-efficiency benefits and speed that offsite manufacturing can deliver.
