Modular Guide Launched  1

Based on Swan’s NU build modular system, the guide provides design teams with an understanding of the interrelationship between consultants, client and factory when designing modular homes.

The NU build guide is the culmination of two years of collaboration with Swan developing their modular system.

Speed of delivery, efficiency of production and waste reduction are at the heart of this book, demonstrating how the construction industry can modernise to meet the 21st century demands for quality, as well as responding to the urgent climate emergency we face.

The guide is not a pattern book, but instead provides tools for the designer to develop their own unique project, whilst thinking about how each module is made, transported and assembled at every stage of the design development.
