  1. Its interesting to see off-site homes really taking off now. Around 2010 contractor George H Austins (who went bust in 2015) developed an offsite timber SIPs house, which they tried to get HAs to buy into. It didn’t take off, perhaps because there was only a limited number of designs available, rather than custom designed units. Now we have Cross Laminated Timber companies are investing serious money in offsite homes manufacture. In Yorkshire developer Citu are building their own factory in Leeds and Legal & General Homes are starting production soon, in a huge factory between Leeds and York.
