Connect Modular marks delivery milestone in North Ayrshire Council project

CONNECT Modular has announced the successful delivery of the first six houses to its new 14-home affordable housing development programme for North Ayrshire Council.

Last week saw a total of 12 modules landed across two sites in Laburnum Avenue, Beith and Newhouse Drive, Kilbirnie. Works commenced in the Connect Modular factory in February and the modules are delivered to site with 90% of works already complete.

This marks the third affordable housing project Connect Modular has delivered for North Ayrshire Council in recent years.

Last week’s module delivery at Newhouse Drive, Kilbirnie was welcomed by pupils of nearby St Bridget’s Primary School, who watched on from their playground as the modules arrived on lorries and were craned into position. Connect Modular has been working closely with pupils from the school since the project began. Colleagues from the marketing team delivered a presentation covering topics including modular construction, health and safety, and careers in construction. The team also launched a writing competition for pupils and invited the winners to recite their poetry at the official sod-cutting event.

“We are thrilled to reach this important milestone in our latest housing project for North Ayrshire Council,” said Richard Reid, acting CEO at Connect Modular. “The successful delivery of the first houses to the development sites in Beith and Kilbirnie, exemplifies the speed, efficiency, and quality that modular construction offers. We take great pride in contributing to the provision of affordable housing solutions for the local community, and this accomplishment further solidifies our commitment to sustainable and forward-thinking construction practices.”

Connect Modular, part of The Wee House Group, supplies modular homes to community trusts, housing associations, and local authorities across Scotland from its factory in Cumnock, East Ayrshire.
