Legal & General Modular Homes has unveiled its new modular show homes at its Portholme scheme in Selby
102 modular homes have been built using precision engineering and sustainable materials from Legal & General’s modular factory in Sherburn in Elmet.
The new modular homes at Portholme, which have been developed in partnership with Selby District Council, exceed space standards and have been designed to achieve Energy Performance Certificate Standard A, currently only attained by around 1% of new homes.
A combination of photovoltaic cells brings significant energy savings for residents of the new homes. Materials have been sustainably sourced and the sensitive landscaping at Portholme also adds to biodiversity.
The modular homes at Portholme include up to 30% affordable housing.
‘High-quality sustainable homes’
Rosie Toogood, CEO of Legal & General Modular Homes, said: “Having seen these new homes being developed and built in our factory just up the road by local employees, it’s great to see them in place and becoming part of a community.
“The show homes look fantastic and we can’t wait to welcome everyone to see the high-quality sustainable homes that we have created.”
The new show homes are now open to the public on Wednesday – Monday. Viewings are currently by appointment only via the website www.lifebuiltin.co.uk/portholme.
The scheme is set for completion by the end of 2021, and first residents are looking to be welcomed into their new modular homes this autumn.
