Firstly a very happy new year from all of the hatch. team. As if 2018 wasn’t exciting enough, we have even more developments and ground breaking projects planned for 2019. This month our first next generation CLiCs one bed apartment module will leave the factory ready for on-site installation. This innovative one bed apartment is formed from two off-site constructed modules, with the living spaces to the front of the modules, and ancillary spaces such as the kitchen and bathroom to the rear.
The factory pictures above show the robust steel frame structure is in place and next week our team will be the completing the internal finishes, M&E works and external cladding.
The finished apartment will comprise of a comfortable combined living/dining space with large french-doors out onto a private balcony, and a galley style kitchen off the living/dining space. A separate hallway will give access to a generous double bedroom, with a small home office space, and floor to ceiling window. Off the hallway there will be a bathroom with a full sized bath (with shower), as well as a separate storage/laundry cupboard for a washing machine, and the heating interface unit, electricity consumer unit and the utility meters.
This practical yet contemporary and stylish space has been specifically created for the social housing marketing. hatch. are currently working with a number of Local Authorities and Housing Associations to embrace their new housing delivery model, which will eventually enable communities to help build the homes they need.
Please watch this space for more updates.
