How we build

The homes will be built from sustainably forested Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) using precision engineering to achieve extremely high standards of production. The high-tech manufacturing environment will also standardise quality and enable buyers to benefit from a 60 year BOPAS insurance policy.

The CLT will be cut and assembled into modules in the factory by the NU build manufacturing team. Then, in the factory, the modules will be fully fitted out internally, that includes the partitioning, electrics, plumbing, floor finishes, kitchens, bathrooms, even painting and internal finishes.

The modules will then be delivered to site where the NU living team will connect them to services and clad them in a variety of materials, roof them and make them indistinguishable from traditionally built homes.
