ilke Homes installs first factory-built homes in Hereford

Modular housing pioneer ilke Homes has craned into place the first factory-built homes on a site in Hereford where the company is delivering an affordable housing scheme for housing provider Stonewater.

The scheme, which sits on College Road, is being delivered through a £23 million partnership between ilke Homes and Stonewater.

Supported by Homes England, the formerly derelict site on the Holmer Trading Estate is being transformed to tackle the local growing demand for affordable housing – with work on site set to complete by early 2024. 

The planned development is set to deliver 74 affordable rent and 46 shared ownership homes, comprising a mix of one, two, three and four-bedrooms, underpinned with accreditations from NHBC.

All the homes being delivered will be manufactured along production lines at ilke Homes 250,000 sq. ft factory in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire. The homes will achieve at least a ‘B’ Energy Performance Certificate rating.

Tom Heathcote, Executive Director of development at ilke Homes, said: “Since launching our full development “turnkey” offering, we’ve been able to offer housing associations, councils, investors and developers a solution to housing delivery that provides certainty over construction programmes. We look forward to continuing to work with the forward-thinking housing provider Stonewater to deliver this 100% affordable scheme.”
