Our Innovation

We invest significantly in research and development, to anticipate and shape future building trends and needs.

 

Our research and development team work to understand market needs – both today and tomorrow – and then create homes and advance build solutions that meet them. We are developing modern methods of construction that will deliver quality, cost-effective faster builds.

And we lead the way in environmentally aware homes. We designed, developed and built the Sigma Home – the UK’s first five star zero carbon home.

We led the triple award winning AIMC4 low carbon homes project. AIMC4 was a unique partnership of companies, created to research, develop and pioneer the volume production of the low carbon homes for the future.

We are a lead partner on the current AIMCH project which aims to tackle all the challenges the housing sector currently faces; skills shortages, an ageing workforce, poor productivity, low output and low affordability – while also becoming a major player in the housing sector.  Funded by Innovate UK, the project is delivering results at its midway point.

AIMCH Project

The three-year Advanced Industrialised Methods for the Construction of Homes (AIMCH) project aims to tackle all the challenges the housing sector currently faces including skills shortages, an ageing workforce, poor productivity, low output and low affordability while also becoming a major player in the housing sector by identifying and developing industrialised offsite solutions needed to meet current and future house building demands.

We believe AIMCH will be the catalyst the housing sector needs to move towards advanced digital integrated manufacturing, whilst overcoming the challenges that stand between the sector today and where it needs to go in the future.
