This figures behind this project and the technology used are too good not to share.
I am not going to add much to this article (mainly as I have had to sign an NDA) but will add that I was lucky enough to visit Visions modular factory in Bedford the other week.
Having been walked through some very impressive case studies and then seen the manufacturing operation in full it is little wonder to me how they have reached capacity. And the great news is the company has a sustainable pipeline, allowing the firm reinvest in future innovations.
It would seem developers and investors are getting Visions message and welcoming this method of construction with open arms.
Apex House in Wembley is set to be Europe’s tallest modular development rising to 28 storeys and taking just 12 months to complete. This symbolic development proves that offsite construction can deliver massive benefits at speed and at scale. The 560-bedroom student accommodation block will comprise 679 separate modules, including 242 modules in two eight-storey wings on either side of the tower, produced by manufacturer Vision Modular Systems at its factory in Bedford. The volumetric modules were delivered fully kitted out with a kitchen and bathroom, services, light fittings, switches, socket outlets, internal finishes and even the bases for the beds are installed.
