Bopas Hybrid Modular Construction VRC Homes

Bopas hybrid modular construction by VRC Homes could hold the future to helping meet the government housing targets. In conjunction with their partner Modularesi , together they believe that with their expertise in building private homes to a high EPC B rated specification would benefit the social and affordable house developers.

The accurate manufacturing process allows VRC to achieve excellent airtightness, with maximum of 3.5 air changes per hour, while the 80mm of insulation within the panels can be enhanced with additional mineral wool or rigid insulation internally.

Typical U-values are 0.14 W/m2k for the walls and 0.11 W/m2K for floors. The use of products such as British Gypsum’s Gyproc Habito, which can be screwed into directly to carry cabinets and other fittings, helps to create a high quality interior environment.

Steel framing is ultra-lightweight but offers excellent rigidity and strength-to-weight ratios, which can enable interesting features and allow for savings on foundation costs. On the sustainability front, it’s 100% recyclable (even when galvanised for durability) but does require a significant amount of embodied energy to produce.

SOCIAL & AFFORDABLE HOMES

VRC HOMES & Modularesi together believe with their guidance and supply of their BOPAS hybrid modular construction system housing associations, local authorities and developers can benefit from building the same EPC B rated specification homes on their developments for the same cost or less than traditional building. The benefts are a faster build, better quality, healthier homes that would benefit the new home owner or tenant.

The private homes already built on VRC HOMES southery development were 40% below the DER (carbon dioxide emmission rate) target, the DFEE (dwelling fabric energy efficiency) was 18.5% above the target rate. This makes for healthier and lower cost homes to heat, it helps with fuel poverty and helps to tackle climate change and carbon footprint, all of which are targets to be met by the housing associations and local authority built homes.

HYBRID MODULAR CONSTRUCTION GROWS IN BOTH RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL SECTORS
OFFSITE NEWS
VRC Homes have experienced growth in supply of their BOPAS accredited modular construction system in both the residential and commercial sectors.
With development finance providers setting tougher repayment requirements, an increasing number of developers are finding the use of the VRC modular system gives them an added advantage in knowing they can meet those requirements.
As the system allows internal building work to commence within days of being on site, the developer has a head start over traditional methods of construction. Based on a simple system of galvanised steel cassettes and pillars, the system has proven that using a mix of off-site and on-site construction methods, a controlled build environment is maintained.
Assembly is local to site or on site, so reducing road miles. The modules are bolted together, with the roof trusses fitted as soon as the scaffolding is erected. External fabric build can start straight away, complementing the quick start of the internal build. First fix is very easy as there are 300mm voids to run services between each floor.
Adapting for market conditions, VRC have found solid growth in the apartment, house and self- build sectors. Commenting on the increasing interest in the system, managing director Michael Philpot said “We are attempting to make the construction simpler and more transparent for both the smaller developer as well as the self-builder. Evidence has shown that with high plot prices, more people are looking at alternatives to turnkey builds, either through self-manage or in the case of councils, developing apprenticeship schemes. Therefore, it has to be at a level of construction understanding they feel comfortable with.”
Adding to the range of alternative solutions to traditional methods of working, VRC Homes have launched ‘Pop Up’ modular accommodation units. Based on foldable modules, the great advantage is the increased utilisation of transport by a factor of 5. Two people can erect a module in 4 minutes. The modules have been designed in compliance with international transportation standards.
