Everything needed for the Portholme homes is manufactured at the Legal & General Modular Homes factory in Yorkshire, and assembled on site.
Building in this modern, modular way gives better quality control using techniques that have been pioneered in the aviation and automotive industries. This means better homes, built quicker and more efficiently.
Modular homes today are precision-constructed, digitally-modelled developments, which are built to the highest standard, and are robust and solid.
Modular homes are a more sustainable way of building houses; the environmental impact of each property is lower as they use less resources and waste in the build stage. High quality insulation is included into the fabric of the homes. The homes have an ‘A’ EPC rating, which only 1% of all new properties in England claim to have. All materials used in building are responsibly sourced and there is complete control over emissions produced in the process.
‘Life, built in’ – more than a slogan
Legal & General Modular Homes’ slogan ‘Life, built in’ is more than a slogan, it is a new philosophy on home.
Legal & General Modular Homes are determined to be a new type of housing developer, committed to creating desirable neighbourhoods in the UK, offering more people the chance to live in a sustainable, modern home.
When they say they offers Life, built in, it’s a way of thinking that guides every decision made.
“We think about today’s lifestyles and tomorrow’s aspirations, where light and space play a key part in boosting our well-being,” they said.
“We take this into consideration with every home we build.
“Our energy-efficient homes have lower carbon emissions than traditional builds, both when they’re built and as they’re lived in.
“And we embrace new methods of construction, using modular techniques in purpose-built factory settings to ensure efficiency, quality and precision.
“So all of our new-builds are ready-made for living, with everything you need to call home.”
