South Liverpool Homes welcome the first ilke modular homes to the North West

Published: 4 June 2019

South Liverpool Homes (SLH) is delighted to see its first modular homes delivered on site in Speke and fully installed in less than two days.

Using innovative technology, four 3-bedroom homes were built off-site in Yorkshire by modular construction company Ilke Homes, before being transported to the 119-home development on Greenway Road.  Although the three-bedroom homes have been built using modern methods of construction, they are indistinguishable from the traditionally built homes on the site and will be ready to move into in a matter of weeks.

The sustainable homes will offer low running costs for tenants and will enable SLH to meet the increased demands for homes in the area at a quicker pace of delivery.

Claire Ryan, Director of Investment and Assurance at SLH said “We are thrilled to be working with ilke Homes and Keepmoat Homes on this pilot which are the first modular homes to be built for South Liverpool Homes. Using this modern method of construction offers real benefits to us as a housing association and to our customers – it enables us to build homes at an accelerated pace, reduce our impact on the environment whilst also offering customers high quality homes where they could save up to 20% on their fuel bills. We will continue to explore how we can use this innovative construction method on this and other schemes.

“The Greenway development is our single biggest housing development in Speke to date,” continued Claire. “We are committed to building quality homes for affordable rent and home ownership which will help meet the needs of current and future generations in South Liverpool; using this modular construction method alongside traditional construction methods will help us achieve this.”

ilke homes are a delivery partner of Keepmoat Homes who are building the 119 two, three and four-bedroom homes on a former school site on Greenway Road, transforming the area into a thriving community.  The mixed tenure development consists of 109 homes for affordable rent and 10 homes for rent to buy – a Government scheme which aims to ease the transition from renting to buying.  

Gareth Roberts, Regional Managing Director at Keepmoat Homes said: “The Greenway is an exciting development which will see much needed high quality new homes made available to the people of Liverpool through mixed tenure by South Liverpool Homes. We’re delighted to be working in partnership with South Liverpool Homes, and that together with our delivery partner ilke Homes we are able to bring these first modular homes to the area.”

The Greenway development is funded by Homes England and is expected to be completed by spring 2021.  They are part of South Liverpool Homes’ plans to build over 240 new homes by 2021 for affordable rent, shared ownership and rent to buy across South Liverpool.
