The hatch. team enjoyed our recent visit to Futurebuild 2019. The topic of Offsite Manufacturing (OSM) and the housing crisis were key points of discussion across many areas, including the dedicated “Offsite Hub” zone. Whilst many recognised that offsite construction and modular buildings would be the future of our industry, especially in the affordable homes sector – the ageing and dwindling skilled workforce, lack of factory capacity and the perceived lack of design control were cited as blockers to progress.
The hatch. proposition tackles all these key points. As well as offering a revolutionary and design-led modular building product, known as CLiCs, our unique business model of building local factories and employing the workforce from within the community it is benefiting, means that we can help engender both economic and social change.
