Countryside plans to deliver 5,000 modular housing units per year

The ambition of creating 5,000 modular homes per year for Countryside is starting to come to light as the mixed-tenure developer reached a milestone of delivering its 5,000th closed panel unit to a site from its Warrington factory.

The company has invested £30 million into the modular production scheme in the hopes of addressing the housing shortage, as well as creating a variety of job opportunities.

With a new Bardon factory opening this autumn, it is said they will be able to produce an additional 3,500 modular housing units in line with their wish to be “at the forefront of innovation” and help reduce its construction waste significantly.

Countryside’s CEO, Phillip Lyons of Manufacturing and Operations, said: “This is a landmark day for Countryside as we bring to life our ambitions of delivering future-proof homes and communities.”

Phillip aslo said: “From the very beginning, our mission has centered on quality and innovation, and therefore integrating our offsite manufacturing operations into our wider business was a natural progression, further accelerating and complementing our ethos of placemaking and community creation.
