England’s modular builder Easybase Home Limited was founded seven years ago and recently moved with its staff of 18 to a larger facility where it intends to hire up to 300 people over the next 12 months. East Lancashire designer Ian Chew spent two years designing the steel-famed brick-clad semi-detached homes for social housing provider Twin Valley Homes. Called the first of their kind, the modular homes have attracted attention from other social housing builders in the UK as well as from New Zealand, which is still facing a housing shortage from the devastating earthquake in Christ Church that hit in Feb. 2011, as MHProNews has learned. According to lancashiretelegraph.co.uk, Easybase intends to hire 20-30 young workers as apprentices immediately.
