We are in the grips of the worst housing crisis this country has seen since the second World War. There has been a determined effort from housebuilders, housing associations, local authorities and the government alike to get Britain building.
But the traditional construction sector has proven that it is not capable of meeting the government's targets of building a million new homes over the next five years. For the year ending June 2019, the industry managed to build 170,000 new homes across the country - the most in almost a decade - and yet, this is still 80,000 homes short of the government's target.
But innovation is beginning to reshape the way we build our homes. In November 2019, we received a £30m investment from Homes England to support our journey to deliver high-quality, sustainable housing.
Through this sector-defining deal with Homes England, 2020 is shaping up to be a momentous year for us. Because of this investment, modular manufacturing just hit mainstream and we are proud to be leading the way in delivering the high-quality, sustainable and affordable homes of the future.
