Crofts Street is the first modular homes to be built as part of Cardiff Council’s flagship housebuilding programme with Wates Residential. The nine homes, potentially housing 36 residents, comprise two-storey, terraced properties which sit parallel to existing neighbouring properties, continuing the existing architectural language. Assembled off-site, the homes were constructed on-site within one week, minimising local disruption and accelerating the occupation of the 100% social housing scheme. Adopting the fabric-first approach design the Crofts Street houses are designed from a hybrid of sustainable materials, delivering high-performing homes which exceed current regulations in fire, acoustics and thermal insulation significantly reducing the running and heating costs for residents and increasing occupier wellbeing.
