An award-winning scheme to provide 5 highly energy efficient homes for homeless people in Swansea

These homes were built to Passivhaus performance standards of energy efficiency, comfort and quality. The homes are highly sustainable and will improve the lives of the tenants that live in them.

The new flats in Bryn House are of a very high standard, in a great location, with parking and lovely grounds and views. The council team behind the Bryn House flats have done a tremendous job of converting and repurposing a once very tired building and grounds.

Housing the homeless in Swansea

The More Homes team at Swansea Council won the coveted prize for ‘Best Housing Story’ at the Welsh Housing Awards 2022 for this particular project. The team was commended for going above and beyond to make a positive difference in their community.

The scheme is part of a local drive to tackle homelessness. In total, we built 3 x Haus4One and 2 x Haus4Two modular homes for Swansea Council at our offsite factory in Norwich using Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).
