BBC Radio 4 on “Is house building on the cusp of change?” The role of factories in housing

Irwell Riverside, Salford

I was asked to contribute to this BBC Radio 4 feature on housebuilding and the growing trend of building homes in factories – which you can listen to in full here.

 

The podcast talks about disruption, and whether house builders like Urban Splash are going to do for housing, what Uber did in the private hire sector.

 

It explores the evolution of old fashioned pre-fabricated homes – through to the savvy modular Houses like ours, being produced now. Alongside my views, there were contributions from modular developers; from Legal and General to Ilke – each of whom hold similarly passionate views about the role of offsite production in 2019 and beyond.

 

If you have any interest in modular or the future of the way we’re building our homes in this country, I’d recommend you listen in.
