Lighthouse, the pioneering modular housebuilder, has become the newest member of the modular housing trade body Make UK Modular.

Launched in December 2021 Make UK Modular is the voice of the UK’s modular housing manufacturers. Make UK Modular’s 30 for 30 mission is to enable the modular housing sector to deliver 30,000 modular homes a year by 2030.

Make UK Modular’s recently published 2022 Impact Report Make UK Modular Y1 Impact Report | Make UK showed that in its first year of operation the trade body met with more than 20 MPs and Peers to substantially increase political awareness of modular housing. The trade body also grew its membership by 60% and published the ground-breaking report ‘Greener, Better, Faster: Modular’s Role in Solving the Housing Crisis.’

The addition of Lighthouse to the existing membership continues the rapid growth of the trade body.

Lighthouse manufactures high-quality houses and apartments on production lines in its facility in Sheffield. It is a fully volumetric modular manufacturer using timber – a natural, sustainable, versatile and durable material for construction. 

Lighthouse employs over 100 people at its manufacturing facility in Sheffield and its regional office at The Innovation Centre, Sci-Tech Daresbury in Warrington.

Steve Cole, Director of Make UK Modular said: “We are delighted to welcome Lighthouse to Make UK Modular. Lighthouse’s low carbon timber-based system is precisely the sort of innovative, sustainable, product modular housing can deliver at scale. Lighthouse’s inclusion on the recently announced OSHA Framework highlights the ambition of the business and their strong growth potential following delivery on schemes around the UK over the last two years.  The modular industry needs ambitious and innovative businesses like Lighthouse to thrive. I, and all our members, are already working closely with their team.”

Tom White, CEO of Lighthouse added: “Joining Make UK Modular is an important step for Lighthouse as we continue to scale our innovative business. With modular housebuilding taking an increasingly important role in the UK, we are committed to advancing the delivery of sustainable, high-quality homes, whilst accelerating the pace of development to help address the nation's housing needs.
