L&G Modular unveils its prefab prototype

Legal & General (L&G) has revealed its first turnkey modular housing prototype that it plans to put into production next year.

The prototype – a two-storey, two-bedroom house made with cross laminated timber – has been assembled outside L&G’s 51,000 m2 factory in Selby, where capacity is being developed to produce thousands of homes per year across eight production lines.

Rosie Toogood, CEO of L&G Modular, said: “The unveiling our first prototype today marks an exciting and important step in our programme to bring modular homes constructed from CLT to market. This prototype demonstrates the high quality of our modular solutions debunking preconceptions of modular housing. At full production, homes like this will be delivered repeatedly in a matter of weeks without the snagging issues faced by traditional methods."

She added: “L&G has a long heritage in providing housing in the UK and sees modular construction as a natural evolution and extension of its position in this market.  Modular construction is set to revolutionise the house building sector bringing new materials along with methods and processes used in industries, such as car-making to raise productivity and help to address the UK’s chronic shortfall of new homes.”

L&G has been involved in housing activities for nearly 20 years including through its stake in Cala Homes and delivering a 1,000 home scheme in Crowthorne through its own house-building arm, Legal & General Homes.
