First Set of Modules Landed in Beith and Kilbirnie for our 14 Home Affordable Housing Development

3 April 2024

We are delighted to announce the successful delivery of the first six houses to our new 14 home affordable housing development programme for North Ayrshire Council.

Last week saw a total of twelve modules landed across two sites in Laburnum Avenue, Beith and Newhouse Drive, Kilbirnie. Works commenced on site and in the Connect Modular factory in February and the modules were delivered to site with 90% of works already complete, demonstrating the exceptional efficiency and speed in providing this off-site, affordable housing solution.

This marks the third affordable housing project Connect Modular has delivered for North Ayrshire Council in recent years. We are pleased to partner once again with the local authority for this important regeneration project, emphasising our unique ability to tackle tight, urban infill sites in residential areas, whilst ensuring minimal disruption to the neighbouring community.

In fact, the innovative construction method is commonly met with excitement from neighbouring communities. Last week’s module delivery at Newhouse Drive, Kilbirnie was warmly welcomed by pupils of nearby Primary School, St Bridget’s who watched on in amazement from their playground as the modules arrived on lorries and were craned into position. Connect Modular has been working closely with pupils of St Bridget’s since the project began. Colleagues from Connect Modular’s marketing team delivered a presentation for pupils at their school assembly covering topics including modular construction, health and safety and careers in construction. Our team also launched a writing competition for pupils and invited the winners to recite their poetry at the official sod-cutting event for this 14-home affordable housing development for North Ayrshire Council.

“We are thrilled to reach this important milestone in our latest housing project for North Ayrshire Council,” said Richard Reid, Acting CEO at Connect Modular. “The successful delivery of the first houses to the development sites in Beith and Kilbirnie, exemplifies the speed, efficiency, and quality that modular construction offers. We take great pride in contributing to the provision of affordable housing solutions for the local community, and this accomplishment further solidifies our commitment to sustainable and forward-thinking construction practices.”
