Local Homes, Walsall factory
Local homes who are owned by The Accord Group have a purpose built factory in Walsall producing pods.
Fibo’s waterproof wall panel system has been used in a successful trial of kitchen and bathroom ‘pod’ installation in a modular building project. Local Homes, the low carbon modular builder for social housing, completed the steel-framed pods in its Walsall factory.
Fibo panels were fitted to the bathrooms and kitchens instead of ceramic tiles. The pods were then lowered by crane into each of the 14 homes in a development for housing organisation Accord at Bilston Road, Wolverhampton. Using the panels as a modern alternative to traditional tiles saved 15 days labour on the build.
As a modular build, products that were quick and easy to install were essential, but with no compromise on quality. Both panel designs – Grey Concrete in the bathrooms, White Silk in the kitchens – are Class 1 fire rated, meeting the safety requirements of the spec.
