Our goal is to harness advanced manufacturing and digital technology to build more homes, and to achieve higher standards of quality, safety and sustainability.
We are creating a new generation of beautifully designed and precisely made homes. We want to showcase how the industry can modernise to increase production and achieve high standards of product quality, environmental performance and safety.
Commencing production at the Berkeley Modular advanced manufacturing facility
We are preparing to start production at our new advanced manufacturing facility in Northfleet, Kent. Berkeley Modular combines our passion for homes and places with the advanced manufacturing technologies pioneered by the automotive and aerospace sectors. Our manufacturing process is digitally enabled and highly automated, turning raw materials and components into fitted and finished modules for new homes in as little as five working days.
Modern methods of construction
Designing homes to maximise the use of modern methods of construction
Many of our sites already use modern methods of construction, such as bathroom pods and panelised systems, to raise construction standards. Over the next two years, we will provide information to assist every project team in reviewing the potential for advanced manufacture and other forms of modern methods of construction from the outset.
Increasing the use of digital technology
Assessing the benefits of digitally enabled processes for each home built
We recognise that the industry needs to move forward and begin to both design and deliver homes digitally. Our new digital collaboration platform will be rolled out across the business to ensure that we have a complete digital record of every home from pre-construction to post-completion, the golden thread of information. This will be supported by the increased use of other technologies such as Building Information Modelling, automated design and collaboration tools. The Berkeley Modular facility will also benefit from automated digital record capture, which enhances safety and maximises efficiency.
Berkeley Modular is a newly-formed company, founded to produce a volumetric modular housing solution specifically for the Berkeley Group.
From our purpose-built, technologically advanced manufacturing facility in Northfleet, Kent, our highly skilled workforce will produce a range of modular housing products designed to the high specification and excellent build standards that customers demand from the Berkeley Group.
