Modular housebuilder Built & Spaces has created its own app to turn a customer’s dream into a fully constructed home in just ten weeks
The Build My Home software — designed in-house in an industry first — lets customers assemble their new home room-by-room, adding different modules to meet their needs for kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and other living areas.
Modular housebuilder Built & Spaces’ component-led system allows customisation in the design stages and minimises waste during manufacture and construction.
Built & Spaces allows one week for the design process, but for one time-sensitive project, the firm’s staff were able to complete the blueprint for a four-bedroom house within 24 hours.
Manufacture of the panels for the project is carried out to the firm’s specifications over eight weeks before being checked for quality by Built & Spaces staff.
Foundations are laid over two days, before the frame and panels are assembled on-site by the Modular housebuilders’ staff within a week
The Build My Home software creates an inventory of all parts required for the build, meaning that customers’ quotes reflect what elements are used.
Built & Spaces is working on a web-based version of the Build My Home software that will allow customers to design their house from the comfort of their own living room.
Steve Wilkie, Director of Built & Spaces, said: “Everything we do is based on making the process of creating your own house easier and quicker.
“Our unique app lets customers create their home room-by-room, adding the spaces and features that are most important to them.
“Customers can be standing inside their constructed house just ten weeks later thanks to our unique component-led system that lets our staff assemble the home by hand on site.
“I don’t believe that any other modular housing company can build a customer’s house so quickly, while offering such a personalised design.
“Nobody else is pricing houses this way. We are literally counting the nuts and bolts needed for the project, and removing the guesswork to provide an accurate quote for the customer.”
