750 carbon positive homes to be built in Greenwich

By Jonathan Campion
A group of construction firms will deliver the low-carbon, modular council homes under a £300mn contract with the London Borough of Greenwich...

The contract will run for five years, and will be fulfilled by companies including A&E Elkins from nearby Lewisham, the architect ShedKM, also from East London, and the Liverpool manufacturer Ideal Modular Homes. By completion, up to 750 eco-friendly houses will be built across Greenwich borough.

The modular homes take only four days to construct, and can be installed on-site in eight hours. The contractors have announced that they expect the first homes to be completed by the end of 2020.

Greenwich councillor Anthony Okereke was enthusiastic about the contract, commenting that it helps Greenwich to deliver on two of the borough’s priorities: "We're excited to be at the forefront of delivering innovative zero-carbon council properties, making good on Royal Greenwich's commitments to tackling both the housing crisis and climate change”.
