Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) is a wide term, embracing a range of offsite manufacturing and on-site techniques that provide alternatives to traditional housebuilding.
The Nulok System is ideal for modular homes as it's lightweight at only 27.3kg m2. Other key benefits include Timber frame construction offers considerable benefits regarding new housing stock being built quickly, at volume, meeting green targets and delivering significant cost savings. Not only is it beneficial to housebuilders but building in timber contributes to the UK's commitment to combat the option of fully-integrated solar, ease of installation and a reduction of required people on-site, which in turn will reduce potential health and safety hazards.
In 2020 leading modular homes company TopHat chose our system for 20 new homes on behalf of MHS Homes in Kent. There was also 1.5Kw of integrated solar installed on each home which will reduce the carbon footprint and the energy bills of the family.
"The Nulok ceramic slate roof-tiling system provided many benefits to TopHat," said Morgan Lewis, Design Lead Architect at TopHat. "It was aesthetically pleasing, lightweight and efficient to install. It also allowed for the seamless integration of solar photovoltaic panels into our roof panels at our high-tech manufacturing facility."
Paul Stevenson, UK MD Nulok Roofing Systems added: "It's excellent to work with companies like TopHat. Their homes are stunning, modern, efficient and in line with the very definition of MMC. We have already secured more orders from TopHat and look forward to working with them for years to come."
