Dacorum Borough Council have become the first council in Hertfordshire to make use of purpose-built modular homes as follow-on accommodation for people who have previously experienced homelessness.
Award-winning house builder, The Hill Group, officially handed over the keys to eight SoloHaus homes in the Hemel Hempstead area.
The homes are specially designed, fully furnished and equipped for a single person to move straight into. The homes, which are built to last for at least 60 years, are highly energy efficient to keep costs low.
Andy Hill, Group Chief Executive at The Hill Group, said: “We are pleased to be working with Dacorum Borough Council to supply the first purpose-built modular homes in Hemel Hempstead.
“We designed SoloHaus to aid vulnerable individuals with nowhere to call home and I am confident that this scheme will have an incredibly positive impact on many Dacorum residents, helping them to turn their lives around.”
