A DEVELOPMENT of low carbon emission homes are being constructed at the rate of two a day.
Building work by Redditch Co-operative Homes, part of Accord Housing Group, at a site in the West Midlands has an average completion rate of two semi-detached bungalows in a day. The £ 4 million development of 36 dwellings in Redditch are being built using a Norwegian timber frame system.
The system-built homes, using closed timber panels, are supplied by another co-operative ? Norwegian manufacturer Hedalm Anebyhus which has 40 years experience of off-site manufacturing.
"The Norwegians can deliver high quality, low carbon emission housing in the UK for the cost of traditional construction," said Alan Yates, Director of Regeneration at Accord Housing Group. "Through further development of the product, we believe we can achieve the higher carbon neutral standard for housing set by the government."
