Rainham Passivhaus part of Prefab Housing Optimism

Circle Housing's Rainham Passivhaus development was mentioned in a recent Guardian article titled: Why new home providers are banking on the prefab.

The article focuses on the potential of a prefab boom that could be part of the solution to Britains housing shortage. The Rainham Passivhaus homes are built on a brownfield site and consist of 34 townhouses and 16 flats which utilise factory-built parts that are then rapidly assembled on-site.

It costs less to build this way, but it’s not the cheap and nasty pre-fab of past decades... Rainham shows us how we can use brownfield land, high-quality design and cutting edge construction techniques to quickly build new homes that people will want to live in.
