Vinco Group unveils technology to build homes in under 10 weeks
Liverpool-based Vinco Group has unveiled a new technology which it claims enables it to build a fully functioning family home in under 10 weeks – from foundation to handover of keys.
The model has been used to build four family homes in Lower Breck Road in Anfield that are now fully tenanted.
It enables the company to build homes significantly faster, while still meeting all building regulations, says Vinco Group providing properties that are more affordable, sustainable and energy efficient than their traditional counterparts.
The properties are constructed on an insulated raft foundation system with structurally insulated panel (SIP) walls. The panels are cut to size off-site and are light to handle, making the build easier, resulting in less waste and meaning the house can be constructed and made watertight in a week.
“We’ve been developing this technology for a number of years and we wanted to build the homes to make sure they meet the standards we expected from our lab testing.” says Vinco managing director Glyn Thomas. “We are so pleased with the product that we have opened a development facility in Lithuania to produce these market-leading SIPs.
“Vinco Homes is committed to delivering sustainable, affordable homes to those who need them. We would never sacrifice build quality and our homes still utilise the traditional features that people love, like stone effect sills and a brick facade. We have four very happy families living in our homes in Liverpool right now.
“But the real innovation is the speed and cleanliness of the build process. While we can’t build a house in a week we can build ten houses in ten weeks and that’s about half the build time of traditional processes.”
Vinco Homes is accredited by the Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS).
