    A story about storeys...

    14 January 2021
    A 2 minute read by Christopher Shaw

    We’re super proud of our House by Urban Splash homes. They’re each created in our factory, where we precision engineer them in line with customer designs.

    Sounds easy right? But have you ever wondered about the intricacies of the process? Well voila, our awesome team has put together this film showing modern methods of construction (MMC) in action – a modern story about storeys!

    Each of our homes here is created lovingly by the team. The production line starts with the ceilings, floors and walls; bathrooms are created on their dedicated line, with the rest of the storey – or module – moving around the factory where plumbing, electrics and a lick of paint are added.

    Then, after a mere 3,383 quality control checks, the module is released for delivery and taken by road to a House by Urban Splash neighbourhood; there, each storey is craned into place to create the completed house. Cool, huh?

    This film’s a first, and a fascinating snapshot into our operations – one which shows you just how those simple boards of sustainably sourced timber are quickly turned into a real home.

    The House by Urban Splash factory

    This year, our production line will be creating homes for customers at East Float, Wirral Waters in Merseyside, Inholm Northstowe in Cambridgeshire, Port Loop in Birmingham and New Islington in Manchester; if you want to know more, or if you want to take a virtual tour with a member of our team, then drop us a line.
