From one off homes to larger developments, our designs will stand out as individuals or can fit in with existing building architecture.
Offsite Building Advantages
Our system integrates new advances in offsite construction and continuously invests in R&D to evolve to more sustainable solution and eco efficient.
Offsite building modules and components are designed and manufactured to last, with a specific application for optimisation of environmental impact, structural resistance, thermal efficiency and acoustic performance. Being an offsite industrialised building system, our system is a panelised system, based on offsite elements that are assembled on the construction site, including windows and doors, reducing transportation costs.
A ‘Fit your choice’ type of construction suitable to almost any design or architectural project, from classic to modern, while allowing repeatable units in volume numbers featuring integrated, adaptable and sustainable design and delivered in a time cost effective way.
AN INNOVATIVE SOLUTION TO MEET THE UK’S HOUSING AND HOMELESSNESS NEEDS
It is our aim to make First Start Homes a market leader in Energy Efficient homes.
The homes themselves are already at a SAP rating of high B into A making them extremely energy efficient, this added to the fact we will offer the option to upgrade at very little cost to have energy storage, photovoltaic and solar thermal incorporated into the build, our homes will be even more affordable for the home owner or tenant.

Planning and Development of Projects
We turn ideas into real projects, economically sustainable, which can be developed accordingly to the highest requirements and always considering the specific needs of our clients.
Our team of architects and engineers have specific expertise and training to ensure effective selection of appropriate products for each project , thus solving any technical doubts.
Quality of the materials
Off site manufactured products (i.e. industrial) make it possible to assure quality and uniformity, as the process is tightly controlled in certified factories. Moreover, insulating materials of high energy efficiency are used, which is essential for comfort and lower electricity consumption.
Optimal use of all the resources involved (materials, time, money, energy, etc.) due to the industrialisation of an almost artisanal product (houses).
Accurate quantities guaranteed
Minimising waste and variations from the initial estimate due to unforeseen consumption of construction materials onsite.
Reduction or elimination of heavy machinery use
In the majority of cases, scaffolding and formwork is not required, allowing fixed construction costs to be reduced.
Significant reduction in execution time
As it can be assembled and finished quickly thanks to its industrialised modular nature.
Reduction in labour costs
Through the lower labour requirements and the use of labour that is less specialised than that used in traditional construction.
Significant reduction of environmental damage
With increased use of Off Site Manufactured products, contributing to a cleaner, less noisy project, for more sustainable buildings.
Although the use of Off Site Manufactured products in construction is not as large a market as the traditional one. Buildings with Off Site Manufacturing are becoming very popular due to the generally more competitive prices and speed of build. Nowadays, this type of construction is no longer associated with temporary facilities, but rather it is considered to produce high quality and performance buildings.
