We visit ModPods International to see how work is progressing on our extended modular pilot

Colleagues from the Citizen Board and Development Board visited the ModPods International factory along with our Development Team to see the progress of our extended modular pilot.

Our scheme will see 24 homes installed on eight former garage sites across Coventry.

Work is progressing well at the ModPods International factory in Stoneleigh and those who visited were able to see our homes in the factory and an example of what they will look like when they’re finished.

The homes already have steel frames in place and some of the interior components, such as kitchen cupboards and workspaces, have been fitted.

Our Executive Director of Development Nick Byrne said: “It’s brilliant to visit the ModPods factory and see how our modular homes are progressing.

“These homes are part of our extended modular pilot which will see 24 homes built on disused garage sites across Coventry – these will help provide more homes for people who need them.

“There are many benefits to modular homes including high energy efficiency and, as they are built in a factory, they can be constructed in all weathers. When they are craned on to the site they are hooked up to the services and the house is ready to use.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the homes completed and craned into place over the coming months.”

The homes that ModPods International are building will be a mix of bungalows and family houses. They will be installed at: Wedon Close, Bradney Green, Coleman Street, Fletchamstead Highway, Attoxhall Road, Capmartin Road, Shepherd Close and Thimbler Road.

Some of the homes have already been craned into these locations including Capmartin Road and Attoxhall Road.
