The Tattenhoe Park development is being delivered as part of a wider scheme by Homes England that will comprise 160 homes built from steel and timber frames.

Homes England will use the project to assess the benefits of modern methods of construction after a recent government report said MMC will be vital in speeding up the delivery of housing across the UK.

ilke Homes will deliver a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes for both affordable and open market tenures.

The homes will be precision-engineered along production lines with a focus on quality, sustainability and energy efficiency.

Bellway is due to start work on site in March and ilke Homes is expected to deliver the first homes in August.

Tom Heathcote, executive director of development at ilke Homes, said: “Proof of both concept and delivery means that ilke Homes has become a partner of choice for the UK’s biggest house builders.

“It’s great to partner with Bellway Homes at Tattenhoe Park, a truly innovative, Homes England-backed scheme that is aiming to demonstrate the benefits of MMC by collecting granular data on the performance of our own precision-engineered homes.

“ilke Homes’ leading role in Make Modular, the UK’s first trade association for MMC providers, means we’re at the forefront of creating the next steps for modular house building in the UK.

“The body will accelerate and advance the MMC agenda through one strong voice rather than a series of disparate ones.”

Paul Smits, managing director at Bellway Northern Home Counties, said: “Bellway is pleased to confirm this partnership with ilke Homes to deliver our first modular homes at Tattenhoe Park.

“We have developed our plans with ilke’s input throughout, and their expertise has accelerated our learning around their products and processes.

“Now contracts are signed, we look forward to seeing these new homes being manufactured by ilke Homes and preparing to install the units at Tattenhoe Park.”
