Keyhouse ’12 Hour House’ highly commended at industry awards – Keystone

  • 18 Mar 2021

Keystone Group is delighted to announce that Keyhouse – its revolutionary 12 Hour House – has been highly commended in the Innovation category at the 14th Annual Constructing Excellence National Awards.

The prestigious awards showcase excellence in the built environment and are part of a national programme of nine regional awards covering England and Wales.

The commendation at the national awards recognises the company’s ground breaking Keyhouse, an innovative flat pack system which brings the reality of a factory built home to those housebuilders wanting to take the next move in offsite construction. It can be assembled on site in just 12 hours.

‘A fantastic achievement’

Cathal Nicholas, at Keystone Group, commented: “This is a fantastic achievement. The Constructing Excellence Awards are revered throughout the industry.

“The recognition is testament to our vast manufacturing and technical expertise, and the same ground-breaking innovation that can be seen across the Keystone Group.

“The Keyhouse 12 Hour House offers tremendous potential for clients who value the opportunity to fast track completion of homes with the minimum of onsite labour.”

Commenting on the standard of the awards, the judges from Constructing Excellence said: “The quality of the entries and winners to these awards demonstrates just how much the construction industry is progressing and the Keystone Group are very much at the forefront of that.”

The Keyhouse system is based around a series of factory built components that are delivered to site. Once on site, a team of four people can construct the house in just 12 hours, delivering the complete structure of a brick finish on a robust concrete outer leaf with an internal insulated timber frame, along with floor cassettes, staircase and a pre-tiled roof.

It is watertight, airtight-insulated and ready for the first fix, enabling the housebuilder to add additional value and offer homebuyers a personal choice of finishes.

The Keyhouse flat pack system has inherent design flexibility. The company’s design team can work with architects, housebuilders and developers to adapt the concept design to suit most house requirements.

The system can also accommodate ‘stepped’ and ‘staggered’ site layouts.

Winners of the 2020 Constructing Excellence Awards were announced at an online ceremony, held on 29 January.
