Affordable housing provider Amicus Horizon is using steel modules to help bring its Alexander Court older persons’ housing development in Bexhill, Sussex, up to modern accommodation and energy efficiency levels. The organisation is working with architect The Facility and contractor Rydon on a remodelling, refurbishment and extension scheme that will remove unwanted bedsits in the 1970s built block of 30 supported housing units for older people and provide 38 one and two bedroom flats meeting Lifetime Homes standards.
The upgrading, which is due for completion in December, will also provide amenities including a store for buggies, office for staff, communal conservatory, greenhouse and garden.
The project is using modules manufactured by Enemetric in Scotland, which incorporate external walls, insulation, electrics and plumbing.
