With the Construction Industry accounting for nearly 40% of global emissions, to deliver the Government carbon reduction targets, traditional thinking and practices are changing, here Antonio Lopez of Stelling Properties explores the role Modular Construction can play in delivering Net Zero Buildings. What first needs to be recognised is that delivering Net Zero Buildings requires a focus on both the operational carbon and embedded carbon.
Following the Government’s announcement that it will provide extra funding for pilot schemes to provide temporary housing and extra care for the homeless that have recently been released from hospital, Stelling Properties is calling on those responsible for delivering the pilot programs, to look at modular construction as a way of accelerating the delivery of the homes needed.
Stelling Properties is pleased the Government used the autumn budget to earmark £11.5bn pounds to support the construction of around 180,000 affordable homes and £1.8bn on bringing brownfield sites into use. However, Stelling Properties calls on all the agencies involved to work together to deliver these much-needed high quality sustainable homes quickly, that includes expediating the planning process and using modular construction to reduce material waste and deliver these high-quality sustainable homes in the shortest timeframe possible to help address the housing crisis.
Stelling Properties one of the UK’s leading Modular building construction companies, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded ISO 9001 certification. ISO 9001 is the world’s most recognised Quality Management System (QMS) standard. It aims to help organisations meet the needs of their customers and other stakeholders more effectively.
