Sustainability and Quality | Connect Modular | Wee House Company UK

Sustainability is a guiding principle in all that we do – aiming to meet the demand for new homes without compromising future generations’ access to natural, social and economic resources.

In our factory, cardboard and plastic packing is kept dry prior to bailing and recycling, and general waste is more easily segregated. Combined with more efficient building methods, this results in up to 84.7% less waste than on traditional sites. Reduced time spent on-site minimises construction traffic and related emissions by up to 50% over the course of a development. All timber is sourced from sustainable FSC approved suppliers and suitable off-cuts are used elsewhere in the production line.

Silver Active

Enhanced building envelope insulation keeps utility bills low. An average home costs just 90p per day for heating, hot water and electricity*. Controlled factory conditions and rigid quality procedures ensure that better airtightness and low -u-values can be achieved consistently. Solar photovoltaic panels provide renewable energy to every home.

*Based on EPC figures for a 2 bedroom semi-detached house.

Secured by Design

We are committed to reducing crime through good design. All homes can be manufactured and site layouts designed to achieve the Gold Award.

Net Zero Carbon

We are thrilled to be able to offer Net Zero Carbon modular homes and site design 30 years ahead of expected targets. Designs for these homes have been created around ‘fabric first’ principles of passive design, incorporating mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and wastewater heat recovery to significantly reduce energy demand on site.

A combination of efficient air source heat pumps and photovoltaic panels are used as renewable energy sources, maximising carbon dioxide savings whilst keeping build cost per unit to a minimum. The result is a reduction in carbon emissions of 101% over the baseline.

Principal Contractor

In most contracts we take on the Principal Contractor role managing all aspects of the build project from design and consents to manufacture and all ground works.

Zero Defects in Manufacturing

To maximise quality, we implement a ‘right first time’ policy and ‘zero defects’ ethos. To achieve zero defects, we have embedded ISO9001-aligned quality assurance procedures into our manufacturing and construction processes, incorporating regular checks and hold points. Our culture encourages staff to take pride in the quality of their work.
