        Hot off the press, our £90m deal in the news

        12 June 2019
        by Simon Gawthorpe

        We were thrilled to see news of our new joint venture partnership with Japan’s biggest house builder Sekisui House and Homes England – something author and modular expert Mark Farmer called "as big as it gets" – grabbing the headlines recently.

        More than 40 newspapers and magazines ran the story, with the Financial Times breaking the news of the £90m deal; they were closely followed by features in The Times, CityAM, the Evening Standard, Estates Gazette and Property Week.

        The trade press - from Construction News to Housing Today, to the Architects Journal to the RIBA Journal ran the article too, including some interesting commentary pieces which reflected on what this means for the sector; Planning’s Jo Smit called it a ‘game changer’, while Property Week editor Liz Hamson debated whether deals like this had led the industry to a ‘tipping point’ and that there could "finally be real momentum behind the delivery of modular at scale".
