Positive Homes launches latest development of modular energy-efficient homes due to be installed at the Newlands site in Fernwood

Modular house builder Positive Homes has launched its latest development of ground-breaking, energy-efficient new homes.

The Newlands site in Fernwood will include nine modular houses, due to be installed this month.

Three plots are already under reservation ­— being marketed by William H Brown ­— with the mid-terrace priced at £175,000 and end-terrace at £180,000.


Once the modules are manufactured, they are delivered on to site, positioned in place and then given the finishing touches, such as joining up the modules and roofing, laying the guttering, and commissioning the power services inside.

Because most of the manufacture occurs off-site in a factory, the build time is much quicker, meaning that it is less affected by weather and the elements and is also a safer process.

The 18 modules that make up each terrace will be installed on-site from next week, with completion expected by mid-February.

After that, it will only be a matter of weeks until the first residents can hope to move in.

Every Positive Home has an energy performance certificate rating of A and will have three bedrooms, one bathroom, a downstairs toilet, lounge, a large open plan kitchen/diner, an entrance hall, off-road parking and landscaped front and rear gardens.

Positive Homes properties are built with solar panels, LED lighting, high levels of insulation and mechanical ventilation as standard.

Martin Valentine, chief executive of Positive Homes, said: “Given the current housing shortage in the UK, we believe that all new homes should be built to the highest possible standards and should also be sustainable for years to come.

“We are passionate about building energy efficient, sensibly priced homes at a time when the climate change agenda is at the forefront of everyone’s minds.”

This is the fourth development for Positive Homes, following its Chesterfield, Keyworth and Top Valley sites.

“These new builds in Newark, like all our houses, are a revolutionary design that will not only help save money, but also make a perfect home for first time buyers hoping to get on to the property ladder,” said Mr Valentine.
