Our goal is to harness advanced manufacturing and digital technology to build more homes and 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
Following extensive prototyping and testing activity, in 2022 Berkeley Modular produced its first modules at our advanced manufacturing facility in Northfleet, Kent. These modules have been delivered and installed at Kidbrooke Village, and are to be followed by a further period of research and development to incorporate any lessons learnt into the process. Berkeley Modular combines our passion for homes and places with the advanced manufacturing technologies pioneered by the automotive and aerospace sectors.
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, pre-manufactured staircases and panelised systems, to raise construction standards. Both our internal and external teams have been upskilled on the benefits of modular construction and product design. We are now working to provide additional information to assist every project team in reviewing the potential 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. A new and bespoke digital collaboration platform is being rolled out across the business to ensure that we have a complete digital record of every home from pre-construction to post-completion, known as the 'Golden Thread of Information'. This is being supported by the increased use of other technologies such as Building Information Modelling, automated design and collaboration tools.
