Modular homes at two retirement living courts in Shrewsbury and Brighouse have been rolled-out by not for profit housing and care provider, Housing 21
The new modular homes mark a step forward in an in-filling approach which provides much-needed housing by utilising existing space and minimising disruption to neighbouring residents.
The offsite construction project has taken place on land owned by Housing 21 at Richard Onslow Court and Ward Court.
Housing 21 worked with construction firm, M-AR Off-Site Ltd and Henry Riley LLP consultants to build the two developments of one-bedroom apartments and bungalows specifically for people over the age of 55.
Siobhan Moore, director of development at Housing 21, said: “We are delighted to see these new properties at courts where local authorities expressed a need for more retirement housing in the area.
