Making the move to modular homes at Willett Gardens in Wellesbourne

Willett Gardens is Orbit Homes first development using modern methods of construction or modular build.

The modular homes at Willett Gardens were precision-engineered along factory production lines and then erected on-site in Wellesbourne. Unlike those built using bricks and mortar, modular homes are built using steel frames which form the building’s main structure.

Modular housing significantly reduces the impact on the environment through off-site, energy-efficient construction, minimised material procurement and wastage, and reduced transportation required to and from site.

Despite being built in a completely different way, modular homes have the same homely touches as a traditional house, designed to be blank canvases ready for new owners to make them their own.

All of Willett Gardens’ residences have been designed with energy-efficiency in mind, helping to reduce customer energy bills and lessen the environmental impact. The properties are designed to reflect their local natural surroundings, have a great specification, are thoroughly modern and built to an excellent standard.

This development was extremely popular when it was launched in January this year and all 35 Shared Ownership homes were reserved months ahead of its completion.  It was also shortlisted as a finalist in the Best Shared Ownership category at the Inside Housing Development Awards 2021.
