Project Description

Impakt Housing & Support

36 one-bed apartments

IMPAKT Housing & Support (Formally YMCA Bedfordshire) is an independent housing association that provides a variety of supported accommodation for ages 16 to 65.

With a desire to create a scheme focused on social impact and good design, Verve Developments Ltd is using its land assets in Bedford to deliver an innovative, sustainable housing solution, designed to create an attractive, affordable living space with wellbeing as the driving motivation and objective.

The accommodation will provide 36 one-bed apartments providing move on accommodation for local young people residing in supported housing but ready for more independent living.

Modular Building Consultants developed the performance criteria for using off-site manufactured modular solution. We worked with the clients’ Architect to maximise the benefits of using MMC and to ensure that manufacture for design and assembly (DfMA) was considered throughout the design stages.

We created performance specifications and detailed tender documentation, managing the tender process to source a suitable contractor to deliver this project.
