Launched in December 2021, Make UK Modular is the voice of the Britain’s modular housing manufacturers. Make UK Modular’s 30 for 30 mission is to enable the modular housing sector to deliver 30,000 modular homes a year by 2030.

Despite a political environment 2022 described by chair Dave Sheridan as “like no other … with 3 prime ministers, and 5 housing ministers in under 12 months”, the new trade body has made significant progress.

The report highlights meetings with more than 20 MPs and Lords and the body’s rapid progress to become the go-to consultee for Government on modular housing. Make UK Modular’s first major report Greener, Better, Faster: Modular’s Role in Solving the Housing Crisis is highlighted as a substantial step forward for the sector in terms of evidencing the investment levels, benefits, and political barriers facing modular.

The report outlines how the body has engaged positively with the media to position itself as the voice of the sector including securing a BBC Breakfast feature with Ilke Homes. Membership has grown steadily throughout year 1 with M-AR Offsite the latest organisation to join.

Make UK Modular is determined not to rest on its laurels and has outlined plans to move to a more campaign focused approach in 2023 focusing in on key sector issues such as net-zero, labour supply and skills, and delivering new housing.

Steve Cole, Director of Make UK Modular said:

“2022 has been a year of huge progress. Make UK Modular has established itself as the strong, confident voice for the modular housing sector. I’m pleased to say we are making the voice of the modular housing sector heard across Government.

In 2023 we will build on these robust foundations by increasing our influence, growing our membership, and ensuring that modular housing is a key part of government and opposition’s housing and industrial policy.”
