Work has now commenced for a new modular housing development in Anfield, Liverpool.
The scheme is Your Housing Group’s first modular housing development and signals the start of using modern methods of construction to help meet the growing demand for quality, affordable homes.
We are building the homes on Rockfield Road, close to Liverpool Football Club’s famous ground.
The development, known as Rockfield Mews, will consist of seven two-bedroom homes for affordable rent. The modular homes will create quality and affordable housing in the heart of one of Liverpool’s most well-known areas and contribute to the significant investment already made to the area by the group.
The development has been designed by YHG in conjunction with modular housing specialist- Ilke Homes. Engie have been appointed to construct the development.
The homes will be built off-site in Ilke’s factory and then transported to the site and positioned using cranes. Engie are responsible for the preparation of the site infrastructure, foundations and external works associated. The development is due for completion in Autumn 2020.
Brian Cronin, Group Chief Executive of Your Housing Group said:
“This new development is another step forward in the incredible regeneration of Anfield, and a new beginning for Your Housing Group in delivering homes using modular construction methods. The modular homes will enable us to deliver quality homes in less time and therefore at more affordable prices.”
The development is being partly funded by Homes England. In May this year Homes England commissioned its own research study into modern methods of construction (MMC) to drive innovation in the construction industry.
Gabrielle Berring, Director of Loans at Homes England, said:
“We are really pleased that Your Housing is making its first move into modular housing with Homes England’s support at this exciting development in Liverpool. It’s also good news that the modular homes are being built by ilke Homes, in which Homes England made a strategic investment as part of our commitment to accelerating the use of modern methods of construction.”
