We’re an offsite light steel frame superstructure manufacturer and work with some of the UK’s largest developers on both commercial and residential projects. Over the past 20 years we’ve delivered light steel residential superstructures for more than 3,000 houses and 4,000 apartments – that’s more than anyone else in Europe.
With digital technology at our core, we adopt an integrated approach where offsite manufacturing is incorporated into the supply chain from the start. Our partnerships are then able to deliver a seamless programme which produces high quality, precision-engineered structures for numerous market sectors.
We’re driven by the opportunity that efficiencies of light steel create for the construction of many different kinds of structures – striving for and delivering excellence in thermal, fire and acoustic performance. We want to learn, to educate and to work in partnerships with others, to develop integrated supply chains which are focused on long term product-development rather than short term project-thinking.
Our manufacturing facility and offices are in Northampton, England and with our business focused largely on the residential housing market, care homes and student accommodation, we’re achieving growth of 40% year of year. We owe our continuing success to the investment we place in our people, our products and our services.
Why The Company Joined The Housing Forum:
The UK continues to face a housing shortage and it’s now widely accepted that modern methods of construction (MMC) have a significant role to play in delivering the number of new homes needed. However, the need to drive change in the industry remains.
As a light steel offsite manufacturing business with over 20 years’ experience, we’re a seasoned player in this multi-sector industry. We’ve built more than 9,000 student beds, 4,000 apartments, 3,500 houses, 2,000 care home beds and 25 schools, and we embrace the challenge ahead of us. The Housing Forum is enabling the sharing of information about MMC and helping to build an understanding of the need for continuity and volume in the offsite industry. The journey is far from complete though and as a member, we have the opportunity to meet new business partners and decision makers from across the industry – we’re also able to engage with housebuilders, contractors, architects, Housing Associations and Local Authorities to forge new business relationships, exchange knowledge and discuss new ideas and strategies.
Through its publications and forums, The Housing Forum continues to act as a catalyst for the future of modern methods of construction and we’re proud to be part of that journey.
