Homing in on excellence

We know that you consider the quality of your home to be a top priority. You want your home to be well designed, well built and durable. You want your home to be constructed in such a way that your energy costs are reduced significantly. You want the costs of maintaining your home to be as low as possible. Owning an off-site manufactured home like Scothaus gives you all of these quality advantages

Homing in on Excellence

The Housing Forum's 'Homing in on Excellence' report, a study into off-site manufactured homes, concluded that quality is greatly improved when homes are constructed under factory conditions.

Clearly, there is less dependence on weather and less reliance on the coordination of a variety of on-site labour skills.  In a factory it's easier to train the workforce and implement quality assurance.  The 'Just in Time' system of materials' delivery leads to higher quality components, lower like-for-like costs and reduced waste.

All in all, as the Housing Forum says, predictability is significantly increased and the number of 'snags' substantially reduced when off-site manufactured homes are assembled on site.

When the Housing Forum polled the industry on the advantages of off-site manufactured homes compared to traditionally constructed homes, the respondents said that the single greatest advantage of off-site manufacture was ... quality.

The increasing use of off-site manufacture is introducing a new generation of high quality creative design in housing.  Scothaus represents excellence in home building - which means that you can own a home whose construction quality is second-to-none.
