Fleet of modular homes in place at Roxburgh Road, Nuneaton.

A new fleet of ultra-modern, modular homes was craned in this month at a development site in Nuneaton.

Built using funding from Homes England, the Roxburgh Road development consists of eight, 1-bedroom apartments, and transforms the former, unattractive garage site into a welcoming residential area.

Designed and built by a local leading innovator in modular housing, ModPods International Ltd, each unit has been specially designed off-site to national space standards using the latest technologies.

Staying consistent with its approach to combat climate change, the Borough Council has ensured that the latest in energy-efficient methods have been used across the development to help minimise heating bills for residents.

Keeping up to date with the change in the automotive industry towards electric vehicles, the development will also include two vehicle charging points for use by residents and external visitors.

Steven Smith, Chief Commercial Officer of ModPods International Limited, was delighted to be working with the Borough Council to deliver the units, he said:

“We are extremely pleased to be working with the council. As a full volumetric modular manufacturer who is also based in Warwickshire, we see ourselves as an ideal partner, with the capacity to deliver quality, affordable, sustainable housing, while simultaneously creating local jobs and training young local people in our “ModPods Academy”. We are looking forward to building on the success of this development and to continue providing the Borough with future-proof housing going forward.

Cllr Chris Watkins, NBBC Portfolio holder for Housing and Communities added:

“It has been very exciting to see yet another modular development underway in the Borough. More affordable homes are needed for local people and the modular design provides excellent quality, energy efficient homes that will suit the needs of the residents for many years to come.”

Two modular home developments are already complete in the Borough, providing a total of 12 dwellings, with more already in the pipeline.
