Insurance giant reveals images of long-awaited first completed scheme from modular housing business

L&G has published images of the first of its modular homes installed on site, five years after the business was set up.

The insurance giant said it had now installed 102 homes on its Portholme site in Selby, near to its Sherburn-in-Elmet factory in West Yorkshire.

It has also opened some of the houses as show homes for the public to see the product.

L&G said the homes will achieve an EPC A-rating, a level only achieved by around 1% of new-build homes. In addition 30% of the scheme will be available as affordable housing.

In April the chief executive of the L&G Modular business, Rosie Toogood, told Housing Today the firm now has a 750-home pipeline of projects, and is in discussions over projects for 2,000 homes.

Earlier this month it revealed it is to supply 200 of the homes for L&G’s first suburban build to rent scheme, in North Horsham.
