Modular housebuilder launches software

Modular housebuilder Built & Spaces has created its own software to help customers assemble their new home on a computer.

The software allows customers to design their home room-by-room, before providing a quote based on the parts being used.

The company said the application helps customers turn their idea into a house in 10 weeks – there’s one week of design, eight weeks’ manufacture, and one week construction.

Steve Wilkie, director of Built & Spaces, said: “Everything we do is based on making the process of creating your own house easier and quicker.

“Our unique app lets customers create their home room-by-room, adding the spaces and features that are most important to them.

“Customers can be standing inside their constructed house just ten weeks later thanks to our unique component-led system that lets our staff assemble the home by hand on site.

“I don’t believe that any other modular housing company can build a customer’s house so quickly, while offering such a personalised design.

“Nobody else is pricing houses this way. We are literally counting the nuts and bolts needed for the project, and removing the guesswork to provide an accurate quote for the customer.”

Manufacture of the panels for the project is carried out to the firm’s exacting specifications over eight weeks before being checked for quality by Built & Spaces staff.

Foundations are laid over two days, before the frame and panels are assembled on-site by Built & Spaces staff within a week.
