Britain's Ilke Homes Opens Factory That Produces 6 Homes a Day

British modular home builder, ilke Homes, has officially opened the doors to its first modular housing factory in Knaresborough, Yorkshire.

The vertically integrated home builder aims to build 2,000 new homes a year within the next 24 months, and plans are already in place to scale up the operations to produce 5,000 homes per year in the next five years.

Modular housing is set to take off in the UK with experts saying that the ‘revolution’ in building could slash the usual 40 weeks it takes to build a home to just 10 days.

The state-of-the-art factory uses innovative, modern methods of construction to build eight modular homes every day and specializes in the latest off-site manufacturing techniques. The high-quality, energy-efficient homes are transported to developments across England and once on site, can be installed at a rate of six homes per day – significantly cutting the time to build a single family home to those who need it most.

Homes will have flexible layouts with over 100 possible variations, from two story terraced houses to three story semi-detached properties, and blocks of apartments of up to four stories.

6 homes a day OR 6 modules a day?
At the least, if a ranch is 2 modules, that is a minimum 12 modules in a day. Impressive from one factory.

Incredible prediction for the future.
From their web site - "Working in partnership with registered providers and developers, we will deliver 2,000 precision-engineered homes a year within two years from our Yorkshire factory."
That's about one every hour!!
