Low Carbon Affordable Homes.
CoreHaus uses modern methods of construction, intelligently. Our manufacturing principles are based on a standardised ‘modular’ core which houses a pre-finished WC, bathroom, staircase and heating system. As a result, 80% of commonly-problematic construction processes are taken care of offsite and there is an up to 50% reduction in the onsite construction programme.
A specially-chosen selection of panelised external walling systems ensures that CoreHaus can be used in both urban and rural locations with elevation treatments tailored to suit each setting. The standardised modular core has been designed to allow CoreHaus to be configured so that it provides 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom solutions.
Standardisation sits at the core of our cost reduction strategy, but not at the expense of functionality and good design. Committed to delivering value for money, we work closely with local supply chains to introduce competition and provide national coverage. A standard design and faster build programme will help CoreHaus achieve savings on-site prelims and professional fees.
Everything we do is underpinned by sustainability, from the flexibility of the design, to innovative materials and our commitment to delivering social and economic value. To us, good design and functionality goes beyond making our homes look great and perform well. We create homes that can evolve with the needs of their inhabitants; flexible to changes in requirements.
CoreHaus utilises an intelligent hybrid approach, predominantly including categories 2 + 5.
This allows a high level of flexibility to meet the bespoke needs of our customers whilst maintaining the benefits of standardisation and offsite manufacturing.
Pre Manufactured Value
Pre-manufactured value is a key metric for the MMC sector. PMV measures the proportion of projects made up of onsite labour, supervision, plan and temporary works. Increasing manufacturing and/or reducing site labour can both be applied to improve PMV. The PMV of CoreHaus Solutions is estimated at around 60% which we believe perfectly meets the current demand for flexibility, quality and efficiency.

CoreHaus Homes, built around a light gauge steel CORE and housing all the needs of modern living, are manufactured in a controlled production environment to meet the current and future needs of the housebuilding industry. This design and construction type allows us to develop sites faster with less issues arising from onsite coordination. Once delivered to site the cores are wrapped in an insulated light gauge steel frame to form the main rooms and roof.
