Ilke Homes boss David Sheridan spells out how the modular housebuilding operation will realise its ambitions

Homes are built on a production line factory in Flaxby, near Knaresborough, Yorkshire and shipped by lorry in fully-finished modules for assembly on site.

Chief executive Dave Sheridan, former chief executive of founding partner Keepmoat, says the cost of the homes is “hugely competitive” with traditionally built homes in the south of England and works elsewhere when savings on prelims and additional rental income from quick delivery are factored in.
