Berkeley Modular is a newly-formed company, founded to produce a volumetric modular housing solution specifically for the Berkeley Group.
UMC Architects were appointed at concept stage to design a purpose-built, technologically advanced manufacturing facility in Northfleet, Kent, where a highly skilled workforce will produce a range of modular housing products designed to the high specification and excellent build standards.
Completion of the shell and core of the building was achieved in the summer 2019, while production is due to start by spring 2020. The 166,000 sqft manufacturing facility based on Northfleet Embankment, Ebbsfleet, Kent, will produce up to 1,000 finished modular homes a year, all of which will include electrics, plumbing, flooring and internal fittings.
Having successfully negotiated the scheme through planning, UMC Architects supported Readie Construction through the detail design and construction stages of the project.
