New Modular Rises in Great Britain

ConstructionDigital reports from the United Kingdom after many months of collaborative research, Larkfleet has developed low-cost, lightweight, energy efficient modular housing. The Startlink Lightweight Building Systems (SLBS) homes weigh less than half of what a comparable site-built home would weigh. Evaporative cooling in the summer flows from the water retentive ‘green roof,’ which also adds thermal mass. As MHProNews has learned, the housing is designed to mitigate flood risk, although additional water tight flooring materials could make the dwellings more impervious to a rising tide.
