LoCaL Homes, a leading offsite manufacturer of housing, has launched an innovative range of kitchen and bathroom pods to add to its closed timber panel solution.
LoCaL Homes, Accord Housing Association’s offsite housing manufacturer, will deliver the first of its kitchen and bathroom pods to roll off the production line in Walsall, to a site in Wolverhampton.
The pods will be fully fitted before they leave the factory; they will be transported to site ready to be incorporated into a range of house types.
The pods will be used for a wide range of affordable homes, including apartments and houses.
Alan Yates, Deputy Chief Executive at Accord said: “Following on from LoCaL Homes’ move to a new and larger manufacturing facility in Walsall last year, the development of our new pods product takes the LoCaL Homes housing solution to a whole new level.
“Manufacturing fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms before they’re delivered onsite speeds up the house building process, and sees a higher percentage of the homes being built within a quality controlled factory environment. I am really excited about the launch of these new products.”
LoCaL Homes uses the latest modern methods of construction to manufacture high quality, super energy efficient houses in its factories, which can be transported anywhere in the country and then built in as little as one day.
LoCaL Homes has already developed more than 1,000 homes across the country from Preston to Cornwall. These homes are quicker to build and are much more energy efficient, reducing the running costs for the occupants and reducing the environmental footprint of each home.
