Durham Modular is a startup company that has been established to deliver an assembly line based approach in order to address the shortage of house building capacity within the UK residential housing market.
Durham Modular accomplishes it’s goal by combining the application of technology already developed within the car and electronic industries, together with bespoke processes that have been developed by its team.
The houses are designed to be thermally efficient and the techniques employed during assembly will allow better quality of build thereby reducing the likelihood of loss of energy, thereby delivering low energy use housing, needed by the affordable sector.
The assembly line methodology will allow the recruitment and training of non-trade labour. This approach addresses the critical shortage of skills facing the UK house building market.
