Q3 2017 saw FastHouse, the Northern Irish innovative off-site manufacturer, complete the first phase of its first housing project to the English market, installing its core product, the closed panel timber frame system, to Little Colliers, Corby.
The product left the NI factory fully insulated, with vapour control, internal plasterboard, service conduits, electrical boxes and windows all installed. FastHouse installation turnaround averaged a house a day, to weathertight stage. This resulted in the Main Contractor’s turnaround averaging a house a fortnight, from foundations stage to build completion. FastHouse was established and commenced manufacturing from its 200,000 sq ft facility in Limavady, NI, in late 2016. 2017 has seen the addition of further production lines, giving an annual production capability of over 1,500 closed and open panel housing units. FastHouse is affiliated with Kevin Lagan’s Group of Companies.
