Also known as ‘Pods’, ‘Modular Extensions’ or ‘Adaptation Units’– our ‘Home Living Modules’ are pre-fabricated modules that quickly attach to the existing home. They enable individuals to remain in their homes when a need for ground floor bedroom or bathroom accommodation would have traditionally meant either a re-location or a lengthy and disruptive building project.
Carefully designed to an individual’s requirements, before being fully manufactured in our purpose built factory in Yorkshire, our home living modules are an effective and straightforward alternative to a traditional home extension project. And because we build off-site, transporting the finished module to any location in the UK, we significantly reduce the disruption and respite costs traditionally associated with home adaptations. Within just 2-4 days of arriving at site, our home living modules are installed, connected and ready to use.
Whilst providing long-term living solutions that enable families to remain in their community, our home living modules also offer particular benefits to individuals with terminal illness, where an end of life living solution is required, without the delay and long-term impact associated with traditionally built extensions. Rest assured, we will always spend time listening to the needs of individuals, their families and their care team – providing a solution that meets the unique characteristics of each situation.
Working with Local Authorities, C3S also offers a Disability Facilities Grant Specified Home Living Module.
Providing an ‘Instant Extension’ to a property, our ‘Home Living Modules’ are a cost effective alternative to bricks-and-mortar extensions, without any of the impacts associated with a time consuming building project.
Delivered fully decorated and ready to use in just 2-4 days, we remove the disruption and complexity of traditional building projects. By removing the need for lengthy respite care, we also enable customers to avoid the expense and inconvenience of long stays away from home.
If no longer needed, our home living modules can be quickly removed by our team who will also restore the garden and property to its original condition.
Often procured by local authorities, our home living modules respond to the recommendations of the Government’s ‘Care In The Community’ initiative, enabling care at home to be given for longer than would otherwise be the case.
These units can enhance an individual’s life, whilst saving local authorities the cost of providing permanent building extensions.
As a portable solution, the ‘Home Living Module’ is perfect for local authority and NHS facilities departments as an owned asset.
If you are currently struggling to meet an adaptation need, and need a solution that can deliver a high quality living or bathroom space, at a sensible cost and with only two-days of site installation, give us a call and we would be more than happy to pay you a visit to talk about how we could help you.
Graham Ross – Projects Director, C3S.
Our expert design and manufacturing team are experienced in ensuring the requirements of the individual are met, whilst also adapting to the installation environment.
Delivered fully decorated to a style and design chosen by our customers, including all fixtures and fittings, we utilise the skills of our in house joinery and fit-out team to achieve the highest standards of interior design.
Ensuring the ‘Home Living Module’ sympathetically connects with the existing property, our design team will also produce an appropriate exterior to deliver a seamless effect.
Because we use an innovative rendering technique, that matches the exterior finish of our home living modules to the finish of existing buildings, our modules never look out of place when used to extend an existing property.
Tim Hey – Project Manager, C3S.
Manufactured by our in-house team, we are able to control all aspects of production to produce a long lasting, high quality property extension that utilises the latest building technology.
Our average lead time from site survey to installation is 6 weeks, which enables us to help people live independently much quicker than traditional-build alternatives.
Our home living modules comply with all current building regulations, but with the added benefit of just 2-4 days for final installation and connection. With this comes a significant reduction in respite costs, and a significantly reduced impact of construction on local residents.
Our solution is fully compliant with current building regulations and is certified under the Local Authority Building control (LABC) approval scheme
Mark Willis – Health, Safety, Environment & Quality, C3S.
Whilst the additional accommodation provided by a C3S ‘Home Living Module’ can add value to a property, for corporate or public sector buyers, they also represent an asset – one that can be easily removed, refurbished and re-deployed.
Popular with local authorities, our modules enable procurement and adaptation teams to realise lasting value from their investment – as opposed to repetitively procuring the construction of traditional home extensions for every adaptation case.
Our relocation service removes the module, restores the connected building and grounds to their original state and then prepares the module for its next location.
Because our modules can be re-located and re-used, the return on the initial investment can be extended to meet independent living needs elsewhere, when no longer needed at the initial site.
