The factory-built “fully modular” homes have recently been installed on-site. The houses were manufactured in three parts then transported to Maidstone, lifted into position by crane and bolted together to create new homes.
Modern methods of construction – and fully modular in particular – are a more efficient and sustainable way of building homes, with lower carbon emissions to build and more energy efficient to run.
The Somerfield Terrace site was formerly a private and military hospital. Once complete, the development will consist of 73 homes – including flats and houses – for market rent, shared ownership, social rent, and discount market sale. The six four-bedroom houses will be available for shared ownership and market rent customers in 2024.
JELD-WEN was pleased to supply the ReadyFIT interior doorsets for this project in Paintgrade Premium finish. The interior doorsets are also FD30 fire-rated to provide residents with up to 30 minutes of fire protection in the event of a fire.
