Modular housing firm launches County Durham manufacturing base following contract wins

A modular housing specialist has announced the launch of a new North East base.

CoreHaus has officially launched a new 20,000 sq ft unit on Jade Business Park in Murton near Seaham.

Since moving into its first UK manufacturing facility in County Durham, CoreHaus has been recruiting while also securing new commercial contracts. The order book for the firm already stands at £6m.

The social enterprise company - now employing 12 people - has agreed to provide modular homes to regional housebuilder Homes by Carlton and a social enterprise charity. Production has begun on properties for the Thorpe Thewles site of Homes by Carlton.

CoreHaus managing director, Scott Bibby, commented: “The housing market remains incredibly buoyant with demand continuing to outstrip supply. There’s some extremely positive collaboration going on in the industry which will increase market share and strengthen the reputation of MMC.

“We know the housing sector wants something that’s both affordable and incorporates high-quality design within a modular frame. We are already in discussions with several regional and national housing associations interested in working with our product.

“Our light gauge steel-frame system ensures that CoreHaus can be used in both urban and rural locations with elevation treatments tailored to suit each setting, providing almost unlimited design potential. The standardised modular core means the solution can be configured for homes of almost any size.”
