Based on extensive market research and utilising Modern Methods of Construction, a new concept in volumetric modular permanent homes for rough sleepers has been developed and rigorously tested to help overcome the nationwide crisis.
MODULHAUS™– a one-person volumetric modular home recently took ‘centre stage’ in Westminster to raise awareness of the plight of rough sleepers and demonstrate how modular technology can provide a high quality, cost-effective solution. Government and media interest was intense and now this homeless solution will be transported from the seat of power to Offsite Expo as a key feature at the conference and exhibition.
Taking place on the 21 – 22 September at Coventry Building Society Arena, previously known as the Ricoh Arena – Offsite Expo delegates will have the opportunity to meet the design, engineering and manufacturing team on stand B7 and see Modulhaus™ in the flesh with our two-storey feature build. Offsite Expo presents an excellent opportunity to learn how this super energy efficient interim housing solution is not only transforming lives but also relieving Local Authorities of the burden of expensive temporary and often poor-quality housing accommodation.
But it is not only at Westminster where this modular homeless solution is gaining great plaudits. Against fierce competition MODULHAUS™ has also reached the finals of the Offsite Awards co-located at Offsite Expo on the evening of September 21 in the Building Performance Pioneer category.
Designed and developed by VOLUMETRIC™ – a specialist manufacturer of custom-built homeless solutions – MODULHAUS™ provides a 60-year design-life (BOPAS Certified) that offers exceptional energy efficiency, outstanding functional performance (in terms of acoustics, fire performance and robustness) and superior quality.
MODULHAUS™ homes are delivered to exceptional standards, fully equipped and future-proofed for Building Regulation changes and can reduce ongoing energy costs to circa £5 per week – meeting the guidelines outlined by the Future Homes Standard and negating fuel poverty. Arriving 100% complete, MODULHAUS™ homes only require simple site connection and commissioning. Design features include fully fitted living space with furnishings, shower-rooms and kitchens complete with white goods and all appliances, utensils, bedding etc.
Stackable to two storeys and available in a range of claddings and colour combinations to suit it’s surroundings, MODULHAUS™ sits on six low impact foundation pads to minimise groundworks and requires only electric, water and waste connections.
Offering a safe, independent and innovative interim housing solution, MODULHAUS™ accommodation modules allow individuals to find the stability they need to secure a reliable income before making the transition to a permanent home.
Modules are designed to incorporate DfMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) layout and allow for the highest levels of offsite added value, adopting the maximum level of up-stream sub-assembly/pre-kitting – assuring consistent quality through robust manufacturing and assembly methods.
An operation and maintenance checking service can also be provided for the first 12-months of use, before handing over responsibility to the MODULHAUS™ owners.
