Prefab prejudice



Some of the recent comments on Lord Falconer's endorsement of prefabricated housing have provided a sad reminder of the misplaced prejudice and cynicism that still exists whenever the 'P' word is mentioned.

When are these people going to move into the 21st century and realise that the modular industry has not been stuck in a time warp for 50 years?

It may be hard for these cynics to accept, but prefabricated housing has already started to play a part in addressing the need for 'key worker' accommodation.

It may also be hard for them to believe that innovation, standards in materials, production processes, designs and advancements in technology are also common place in the modular industry.
