The Lockleaze scheme in Bristol has been developed with the city council. It will deliver 185 two- to four- bedroom houses along with one- and two-bedroom apartments developed on land at Bonnington Walk.
These factory-made homes will be rated as some of the most energy efficient in the country, achieving an energy performance certificate (EPC) standard A.
The combination of air source heat pumps, photovoltaic cells and high build standards will put them in the top 1% for energy performance.
Half of the homes will be delivered as affordable housing and it is intended that these become part of Bristol City Council’s affordable housing stock.
Once the land is prepared and access and drainage completed, the first modules will arrive in the summer with the homes assembled within eight weeks.
Legal & General’s modular housing business has continued to grow and is looking to hire an additional 350 employees across 2021, to deliver its growing pipeline, as well as supporting the UK’s bounce back post Covid-19.
From its factory in Sherburn-in-Elmet in Yorkshire, Legal & General Modular Homes is providing an innovative approach to the design, production and construction of homes, driving up quality, efficiency and productivity to deliver highly energy efficient sustainable homes.
Rosie Toogood, CEO of Legal & General Modular Homes said: “The modular construction sector is transforming the way homes are built and addressing the housing shortage. This forms part of our purpose of investing society’s capital for society’s benefit.”
