NU living leads the way with offsite modular factory

We were delighted to take the keys to our NU factory in January this year.

Under our NU build brand we will use modern methods of construction, in a high-tech manufacturing environment to build modules, made of sustainable Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), which will be constructed and fitted out in the factory before delivery to site.

NU build is passionate about modular housing because, using precision engineering and the very latest in modular construction techniques, modular technology will enable us to deliver high quality homes, indistinguishable from traditionally built homes when complete, in around six weeks. That’s half the time taken to construct a traditional home reducing both the construction time on site, which is better for those living near our regenerations and also the impact that weather can have on the time taken to complete the new homes. The resulting cost savings are significant too enabling the Swan Group to deliver more, much needed homes.

You can watch a video animation of the process on our NU build website.
