Legal & General Moves

Eric Dean, who serves as the innovation and production director for Legal & General Homes, Ltd, said that the British insurer’s goal is to be one of the largest homebuilders in the country.

Dean recently presented a new, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT)-focused manufacturing process as a way to make building single and multi-family homes easier by turning it into a prefabricated home assembly line.

A house is a very simple thing, but every time we build a house we seem to reinvent the wheel,” Dean told the audience at the FEA 2016 Forest Products Forum. “So we’ve done a seamless design process linked to a seamless manufacturing process. All through the process what we are doing is cutting out layers of people we don’t need.

Paul Stanworth, managing partner at Legal & General, also spoke positively about modular housing in response to the “Farmer Report,” produced by Cast CEO Mark Farmer.

This review sets out a clear way for the construction sector to reinvent itself in order to meet the ever-growing demand for homes and infrastructure,” said Stanworth.

Legal & General is helping to address this problem by investing in a modern factory to produce homes using manufacturing processes seen in the production of cars and other consumer goods.

This construction method is safe, clean, and fast, providing a high level of consistency and durability. We sincerely hope that Farmer’s review galvanizes the entire sector to invest in innovation and secure its future.” ##
