Building intelligent homes

We were delighted to take the keys to our NU factory in January 2017. Under our NU build brand we will use modern methods of construction, in a high-tech manufacturing environment to build modules, made of sustainable Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), which will be constructed and fitted out in the factory before delivery to site.

The benefits of our high quality modular homes are that they are:

  • Precision engineered
  • Completed in 50% of usual construction timescales
  • Energy efficient and sustainable
  • Indistinguishable from traditionally built homes

The manufacturing process standardises quality and reduces cost.

"At Swan we understand that the desperate need for quality new homes. We believe that off-site construction methods will enable us to deliver these much needed homes quickly, designed to a high specification and with reduced impact on both local residents and the environment. We are excited to be early adopters in the UK of this this new way of working and to be continuing our long term investment in Basildon."
