Wivenhoe Road Modular Housing

Our second modular housing project for Barking and Dagenham will provide 20 new two-bedroom containerised homes.

We prepared the groundworks ready for the delivery of the 20 two-bedroom modular homes from Premier Modular’s factory in East Yorkshire. Once installed, commissioning and landscaping will start and we are set to complete the project within 30 weeks ready for February 2021. By using off-site construction we are able to deliver these new homes faster and more efficiently to the client, on what would be a challenging site to develop using standard construction methods.

The Weighbridge development is part of a wider programme in Barking and Dagenham that will deliver new homes to house local homeless people and families. These properties will be used for emergency or temporary housing for families who would otherwise be forced into expensive and insecure hostel and other temporary accommodation, in and outside the borough.

We were joined on site by Cllr Saima Ashraf, Deputy Leader for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, to see the first pre-fabricated units delivered to site in October 2020.

Cllr Ashraf said, “These new homes will be for local families who are on our council waiting list and have no permanent home. By using the latest modular technology we can build at pace so we can put a roof over their heads more quickly.”
