Construction, property, and facilities company, The Sovini Group, are investing in offsite construction as part of their ongoing Net-Zero Carbon Commitment.
The group, which boasts a unique end-to-end supply chain, is supporting its wider environmental strategy with its latest initiative in the form of adapting raw materials for the new build construction arm of business, Sovini Construction.
The highly advocated method of construction is set to facilitate the Group’s development framework to deliver 1,000 new high-quality and affordable homes within the next four years.
Their newest shift in sustainable construction management is the latest in a long line of ecological and biodiverse plans for delivering affordable social housing across the North West.
The Sovini Group’s timber framed homes provide a significantly lower carbon footprint through its manufacturing, reducing energy consumption throughout its lifetime and locking-away atmospheric CO2 for generations.
John Maddock, Director of SticX shares, “Timber Framing is a great solution for The Sovini Group. For a client who’s genuinely concerned about sustainability it scores highly. By partnering with them, we can help develop improved solutions to save money and time.
“Ultimately, using timber frames means they can provide higher quality houses for their clients. We’re also a local company, so their spend stays local and benefits the Merseyside economy. We’re delighted to share our expertise with such an enlightened and progressive client”.
The group uses recyclable materials which are designed to achieve superior levels of fabric performance, suitable for their projects which are seeking to achieve the very highest fabric efficiency, airtightness standards, and sustainability credentials.
The offsite construction has proven performance, providing an advantageous construction method for affordable housing and with the Group’s timber frames being produced off site and delivered in a prefabricated form, construction times to make a building ‘wind & watertight’ can save as much as 30% over that of traditional construction.
Employing over 800 colleagues, The Sovini Group is a key contributor to the social, economic, and environmental development and future growth across the North West.
