We’ve been constructing social, affordable and intermediate rent housing across London and the South East for over 30 years, in collaboration with local authorities and social housing partners.
We have expertise in applying innovation and modern methods of construction (MMC), including panelised offsite manufacturing, to affordable housing projects adopting our new systemised and highly flexible housing solution. These methods deliver improved quality control, faster speed of construction, cost efficiencies and reduced site waste.
Osborne has extensive experience of delivering housing projects using modular construction, including cross laminated timber (CLT), light steel frame, Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and bathroom pods. Both CLT and SIP systems combine good thermal comfort and airtightness with low thermal bridging losses. Modular construction also reduces labour costs, onsite work, deliveries and disruption. Build times are faster and more certain.
Osborne has partnered with Innovaré – market leaders in offsite, manufactured construction technologies. We have rethought and re-engineered the process of creating new social housing, from initial feasibility to delivery, combining our construction project delivery expertise with Flexihomes by Innovaré, a new, innovative systemised housing design concept. This delivers a full-service, end-to-end solution for the first time, designed to bring new levels of confidence, affordability with quality and certainty to social housing development.
