In collaboration with leading global off-site manufacturer
CIMC, Chapman Taylor has developed an innovative and high-quality modular
residential format for the UK market.
Using volumetric, off-site technology, Chapman Taylor has
designed multifamily apartment layouts for CIMC’s patented modular system, which
is capable of quickly and flexibly delivering 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed apartments
within medium to high-rise developments, in accordance with market demand.
Chapman Taylor’s Interiors team worked closely with CIMC to create the concept
design and full specification for the homes, which fully meet National Space
Alongside the many benefits which arise from using off-site technology such
as waste, cost and quality, this product will deliver higher-quality
finishes than traditional construction thanks to the precision manufacturing
processes undertaken off-site while also delivering attractive commercial
The off-site method can help to reduce material waste by
between 50% and 90%, compared to traditional construction methods, and the
high quality of finishing can lead to much better energy performance,
airtightness and long-term resilience, among other sustainability benefits. It
is anticipated that a carbon reduction will be realised through the
consolidation of assembly processes all occurring within a single factory
location, as opposed to demanding various materials and suppliers delivering
individual components through more traditional vehicular methods on our roads.
CIMC recently obtained BOPAS (Build-Offsite Property
Assurance Scheme) certification, which allows a New Homes Warranty to be
obtained through BLP Insurance. Certified for medium to high rise developments,
this accreditation provides developers, funders and operators with the peace of
mind that developments built using our residential template can obtain new
homes guarantees underwritten by a major insurer as well as allowing residents
to obtain a mortgage.
