Our 1000th House by Urban Splash module has left the building

01 April 2022

Delivery Director, Chris Shaw, reflects on our modular journey leading up to this significant milestone moment for House by Urban Splash

In six short years, House by Urban Splash has created hundreds of modular homes right across the country.

Leading the MMC (modern methods of construction) revolution in the UK, we’ve welcomed residents into their innovative, design-led properties; helped them to find their place in their new, eco-conscious neighbourhoods; and we’ve picked up 28 awards along the way.

It’s been an incredible journey – one which our fantastic team reflected on as we watched the 1,000th House by Urban Splash module roll off the production line at our Alfreton factory on Wednesday, 29th March.

The 1,000th module is en route to our Birmingham neighbourhood, Port Loop.
It will form a single storey of a Row House home – our newest typology offering two, two-and-a-half, and three-storey options for buyers. We’ve already completed some of these homes at East Float, Wirral Waters in Merseyside, and this is the first time they’ll be available in Birmingham.

Our homes are built inside the House by Urban Splash Factory using MMC (modern methods of construction). This means they are created off-site in a clean, dry, and controlled environment before they’re delivered to the neighbourhood and craned into place module by module (or storey by storey).

We started doing this back in 2016, when we created our first housing typology – the award-winning Town House. The first-ever Town House modules were delivered to our buzzing, central Manchester neighbourhood, New Islington – now a vibrant city centre hub.

Our team at the House by Urban Splash factory celebrate an important milestone

On the day the modules arrived in Manchester, we all watched in amazement as the on-site team stacked them into place to form the first-ever House by Urban Splash homes.

Since then, we’ve applied our learning and implemented new techniques, transforming the initial version of Town House into what is now its third iteration.

Now 1,000 modules in, we’ve created hundreds of these homes across 10 neighbourhoods including New Islington in Manchester, Irwell Riverside in Salford, Smith’s Dock in North Shields, Inholm, Northstowe in Cambridgeshire, and Wirral Waters in Merseyside.

Our inhouse research facility, Future Lab, recently revealed that this latest version of Town House is now over 50% more energy efficient than the average, comparative new build home.

This is something that we can all be incredibly proud of as we continue our mission to further reduce our carbon footprint.

Reaching this point of our modular journey has been incredible – but we’ll never stand still.

Our work to further evolve our homes must continue so we can keep offering quality places to live that will always put people and the planet first.
