The project consists of 326 volumetric modules combining to create four houses, four duplex apartments and 109 apartments.
A modular plant room, bin store, stair cores, corridor cassettes and some parts of the roof structure are also being manufactured as part of the complete modular solution. Orchard Village, formerly known as the Mardyke Estate has undergone significant regeneration as part of the London Riverside, Thames Gateway project. The housing development comprises of buy to let and rented units and when complete the new residential units will be a mix of shared ownership and affordable housing, welcome additions to the housing provisions in the area.
TDS commenced work on the project in May 2017 and are now just coming to an end on the modelling and drawing work covering both general arrangement and manufacturing drawings. Work on site started in September 2017 with an anticipated finish by the end of 2018. TDS carried out all modelling, general arrangement drawings and manufacturing packages. Volumetric off site manufacture is a relatively new form of construction for large-scale housing schemes, so this is a pioneering project
