Residential Housing and Structural Skeletons
We have a BOPAS accredited structural system, which has successfully built out and sold with mortgages. Our core range is up to three storeys without the need for racking / bracing. The modules are point loading in the corners. The deflection calculations will determine module width verses length.
The modules have insulation in the floor cassette. We always recommend a secondary floor is fitted to take out any foundation discrepancy. The modules are structural, so the infill panels carry only their own weight. First fix is easy as all services can run within the ceiling / floor void. There is good sound insulation between floors, so ideal for apartments.
Residential, care home and office provision are right up our street. The system is called a Hybrid Construction System because we mix the values of traditional building with the advantages of off-site build up and volumetric fit out. The schemes we can undertake range from airspace to bungalows, townhouses to detached homes, care home provision to modular office.
◼ Development Opportunities
For developers wishing for an on-site structural skeleton for their own completion, our system is an ideal choice. Keeping skilled staff employed but taking out the natural delays in traditional construction.
Structural skeletons can be provided for off-site third party fit out, whether they are modules for chalets, care homes, classrooms, offices, apartments or healthcare. Craned into position from the truck, they offer an ideal solution where site time or noise constraints are critical.
- We are not framework contractors but work alongside construction professionals.
- We can provide architectural and structural engineering services.
An example of the speed advantage over fully traditional building techniques is this system was built off site as a skeleton with panels fitted (on site time – typical house 6 hrs skeleton, then traditional build out – 9 weeks for a typical 3 bedrooms house). Our experience has shown full volumetric is no quicker than the hybrid system, except for fully finished studio apartments where all services are self-contained.

Modular Homes UK
With the growing demand for modular homes in the UK, people are searching using the term modular homes UK as to concentrate their search to the suppliers of modular homes supplied to UK homeowners.
The pace of development in house building around the world has been fantastic. Though we in the UK have followed a path around a traditional built home, there has over the last 50 years lots of options to build a home.
The system is called a Hybrid build system. By teaming up with our sister company VRC Homes – who are BOPAS accredited, we can deliver a fast build system for those needing to build their project quickly. Our system is built out in weeks rather than months. Modular homes have the advantage of speed, but the system which VRC Modular uses also has the advantage of being able to be built to use lower skilled labour for much of the build. The system is ideal for those who wish to train newcomers to the world of construction through social enterprise organisations. The market is growing for homes, but due to the cycle of construction, the reduction of skilled staff post a downturn means that there is a lag in getting families into accommodation.
Building modular homes using the system used by VRC Modular means those staff in their early career days in the industry are able to feel that they have gainful employment and not just the sweepers up and tea fetchers! The VRC Modular system is a transparent build, so that site managers are able to keep close supervision of the required build make up. The modular homes which our sister company have built has proven that the concept of using a modular hybrid system works for both the contractor, the developer and most importantly the home occupier. We are proud that it is recognised the system VRC Modular offer to the modular homes market is one of the best methods to construct modular homes.
