Employer’s Agent Henry Riley required a main contractor to work with their customer, Housing 21 in providing five new modular bungalows for their Ward Court ‘retirement living’ scheme. The homes had been originally designed for traditional construction, but this route quickly became unachievable due to time constraints of funding being granted.

The M-AR

We worked with our new partners to make this project a success and release funding by turning it into an off-site construction solution that not only stacked up financially, but could also be delivered in the tightest of time-scales.


Within two days of the project being awarded, we began ordering materials so that the factory could start manufacture two weeks later. Thanks to our market-leading modular Light Gauge Steel Frame ASA system, we delivered this project efficiently and cost-effectively.

Project Journey

We worked closely with Housing 21 and Henry Riley to build five new retirement bungalows for their Ward Court Scheme. 

One of the main challenges was that the site was very complex in terms of levels. Additionally, as residents already lived nearby, disruption to their daily lives had to be kept to a minimum. 

By working with a partnered approach we successfully turned the project into an off-site solution so that it could be delivered quickly, on time and on budget, while adhering to the existing planning permission and releasing the all important funding from Homes England. 

We took into account the needs of the residents, who were engaged throughout the project and watched the site be transformed by modern methods of construction. 

Promises kept

“M-AR added value right away, with their expertise as a modular contractor to make the project an efficient and cost-effective build. You couldn’t tell it wasn’t a traditional build, even to the trained eye. However, what was different was the attention to detail and quality control.”

Director of Housing 21
