british-prefabs-get-makeover-credit-morpethhearald-uk-posted-daily-business-news-mhpronews-com-60 years after ‘Airey-type’ homes were built using prefabricated concrete panels, these homes are getting a desirable make-over. The 1950s era construction were only expected to last a decade. Win Dolan, 62, lives today in a home with her husband Derek on Hebron Avenue. Dolan says she’s live here all her life. “This is the only home I’ve ever known. We used to have a coal fire as we never had radiators when I was young, so you had to decide when you were going to run upstairs to bed at night because it was so cold.” An investment program worth about £400,000 from Isos Housing in concert with Green Deal, provider Cosyseal and specialist contractors Sykes carried out External Wall Insulation (EWI) upgrades on the 48 prefab homes. ##

Drilling is Good for Factory-built

January 29th, 2013 Comments off

The timesunion reports 40 housing modules are on their way from the Port of Albany, in New York, to St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada for housing offshore drilling workers. Manufactured by a Champion Homes plant in Sangerfield, NY, the modular homes are destined for Exxon/Mobil’s Hebron Project that seeks to recover 660 million barrels of oil. As a side note, the Port of Albany receives crude oil from the Bakken Field in western north Dakota, another bright spot for the factory-built housing industry, as MHProNews has reported numerous times.
