At this month’s Offsite Expo, modular construction specialists Extraspace Solutions will officially launch its new brand – ESS Modular. The company is currently designing and manufacturing a range of modular apartments in London.
Speaking about the rebrand, Paul Tierney, Managing Director, ESS Modular says: “We are incredibly proud of what Extraspace Solutions has achieved over the last three decades. From modest beginnings in 1989, we are now an industry leader in modular construction, employing over 170 people across multiple sites across the UK and Ireland. ESS Modular captures our heritage by keeping the same colours and design features, illustrates our growth and scale with the addition of more modules, and specifically describes what we do as a leading MMC modular contractor.
Residential Expertise ESS Modular will showcase its residential expertise at Offsite Expo by installing a complete two-bedroom modular home in the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. Visitors can walk through the house, assess the quality and discuss the various design options with the ESS Modular team at the show. The company has secured a number of high-profile residential projects over the last few months in private sale, private and residential and social and affordable. One of these schemes is a private development consisting of 43 apartments in a residential area in North London.
The three storey apartment block will be constructed above an underground basement on the site of a now demolished derelict building. The precision manufacturing process will commence offsite this month and onsite completion will take approximately 12 weeks.
Our modular construction process allows for enhanced quality control and minimal disruption to local residents during the onsite construction phase. Transforming Communities ESS Modular was recently appointed as the sole provider by the PanLondon Accommodation Collaborative Enterprise (PLACE) to manufacture modular housing units for homeless families in London. The contract will see ESS Modular deliver over 200 new family homes by 2021.
Developed by the London Housing Directors’ Group and supported by the umbrella body London Councils, PLACE is managing the delivery of these family homes on behalf of a number of Councils throughout London. Paul Tierney, Managing Director, ESS Modular added: “We are delighted to be supporting PLACE’s mission to provide high-quality, local accommodation for people needing a home. We are thrilled to be helping deliver this exciting initiative, showcasing modern modular solutions in the residential market.
This scheme will combine our innovative design with a community feel. Our precision manufactured modular will assist in combating the homeless challenge and provide comfortable family homes, meeting all of the latest GLA space standards.”
