The pros and cons of prefab housing

Prefabrication isn’t new, however the market for prefabricated homes has grown significantly over the past few years, with 15,000 homes being built each year. At Roofspace Solutions, we supply a complete prefabricated housing solution that combines quality, speed and safety, also known as i-House.

What is the Room in Roof solution

Attic rooms, also known as room-in-roof, are becoming incredibly popular for optimising space in the home without significantly increasing build costs. Empty loft spaces often have little to no insulation, with large expanses of space simply wasted.

The fabric first approach

The ‘fabric first’ approach prioritises the energy efficiency of a property right from conception, at the start of the design and development process, as opposed to considering it as an afterthought or ‘add-on’ to ensure properties meet building requirements. Energy efficiency is considered at every stage with a fabric first approach, primarily when designing a building and selecting materials for the core makeup of a property like frames, walls, doors, and windows.

Modern Methods of Construction

Off-site construction is not a new concept. The practice of constructing homes away from the building site can be traced back as far as the Romans!  In the 1900s, we saw the development of kit homes in the US and, here in the UK, the post-war period took advantage of pre-fabrication to help address housing shortages.

Of course, construction technologies have moved on at pace since then, but there remains a degree of caution in the industry as to the benefits of off-site manufacture versus traditional methods of construction.

The road to sustainability

The positive impact that tree planting can have in supporting efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change is no secret. Each new tree planted sequesters CO2 over its growth time, helping to slow down damage caused through deforestation, desertification, and flooding.

As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable development and a low-carbon economy, we have partnered with (more:trees); an organisation that helps businesses take impactful climate action through global tree planting projects.

Waste not, want not: Reducing excess with MMC

The startling reality that the construction industry is responsible for almost 40% of global emissions means it’s right that Roofspace Solutions is scrutinised on our sustainability credentials and issues such as excess waste. After all, it’s our ambition to help make the world a better home, and reach carbon-neutral status by 2045.

We asked our Head of Technical, Mark Gray, to explain how we are able to build more quality homes whilst promising less waste compared to traditional builds.
