We are excited to announce that we are working to provide a custom build option on selected developments where you have the option of designing your home from a selection of layouts to suit the way you want to live. This will include choosing your layout and specification, deciding if you want a conservatory or a loft room or both and many other choices. Once you’ve designed your home we will build it for you exactly how you want it.
Initially, we will produce high quality modular housing for Beechwood in Basildon as part of Swan's £100m regeneration of the former 1960's Craylands Estate which it is delivering in partnership with Basildon Borough Council and the Homes and Communities Agency.
Built using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) we will deliver high-quality, new homes under their newly created 'NU build' brand in our purpose built factory in Basildon, Essex. CLT is a sustainable construction material which utilises soft wood timber grown in managed forests. It's tough, long lasting and used widely throughout Europe and the USA to construct homes. CLT is sustainable as the forests are managed so that every tree used is replaced and also because when used in construction, it locks away carbon rather than omitting further carbon as happens during traditional construction processes.
The first modules for the showhomes left the factory on 25 October 2017 to be assembled onsite at Beechwood and the new Marketing Suite opened on site on 4/4/ 2018.
