A leading offsite construction specialist, The McAvoy Group , has received accreditation from BOPAS, the Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme, for its new modular housing solution.
The certification provides assurance to lenders that the McAvoy steel-framed building system will deliver consistent performance for at least 60 years.
The McAvoy offsite housing system for multi-storey apartments, detached, semi-detached and terraced homes was assessed as part of the BOPAS accreditation process which looked at best practice in key performance areas of each stage of project development – from concept and design to manufacture and construction.
Eugene Lynch, Managing Director of The McAvoy Group said: “More developers and public sector housing providers than ever before are recognising the benefits of offsite construction to deliver affordable, high quality properties in less time. The BOPAS accreditation for the McAvoy building system will ensure mortgageability, giving investors and developers the assurance of the quality, reliability, durability and energy efficiency of our building solutions for housing.”
“We have nearly 50 years of experience in the delivery offsite building projects across a range of sectors, including schools, hospitals, airports and offices. This expertise, combined with our extensive design and engineering programme, means we are well placed to help address some of the major challenges facing the housing sector – from the shortage of skilled labour in construction to the need for increased productivity in housebuilding to meet the rising demand for new homes.”
McAvoy works as a principal contractor on its housing projects, providing a full range of services including design, site preparation, building manufacture, fitting out and landscaping to ensure a seamless service and improved quality control for developers and housing providers.
BOPAS was established by Buildoffsite, BLP Insurance, the RICS and Lloyd’s Register to provide long-term assurance to lenders and valuers that homes built using non-traditional methods of construction offer longevity and reliability.
