Elements Europe has been contracted to deliver an offsite solution to Orchard Village, a residential scheme in Rainham, Essex for Registered Provider Clarion Housing Group. Hills Bespoke Living are the main contractor on this project.
Elements Europe is manufacturing 326 modules consisting of four houses, four duplex apartments and 109 apartments. The modules which are fitted to the client’s specification include kitchens, bathrooms, lighting and finishes as well as balconies. A modular plant room, bin store, stair cores, corridor cassettes and some parts of the roof structure are also being manufactured as part of the complete modular solution.
A unique feature of this project is the shape of one of the buildings being curved which means that modules have to be manufactured with a splice shape to allow for the elevation’s curvature. Elements Europe worked closely with architects DMA to ensure this was executed.
Orchard Village, formerly known as the Mardyke Estate has undergone significant regeneration as part of the London Riverside, Thames Gateway project. The housing development comprises of buy to let and rented units and when complete the new residential units will be a mix of shared ownership and affordable housing, welcome additions to the housing provisions in the area.
