New Wetherby modular homes installed at home of Liverpool FC

  • 5 Aug 2021

The home of Liverpool Football Club is now home to a new modular development thanks to Wetherby Building Systems modular façade system, Your Housing Group and modular housing specialists, ilke Homes Ltd.

The new development, situated close to the Reds’ home ground in Anfield known as Rockfield Mews, saw seven two-bedroom new homes built inside ilke Homes’ factory and positioned into place by crane.

Set out to help meet the growing demand for quality, affordable homes and with modular construction continuing to drive innovation in the industry due to modular homes’ superior energy efficiency; Your Housing Group felt it was time to add this to its portfolio of investments already made within the area.


The location of this project created an additional challenge due to it being positioned in an already built-up housing estate with narrow access roads. Because it was important to deliver the project with minimal disruption to local residents, a modular build was the ideal solution as this allowed all of the units to be completed at ilke Homes’ factory in North Yorkshire before being transported to the site.

Wetherby’s modular façade systems have been specially designed for assembly in a factory-controlled environment and with a flexible approach to finish options, it means that this build complements the already existing community.

The Wetherby modular brick slip system utilises a unique tongue and groove interlocking, high-density EPS insulation board to provide superior strength, high impact resistance and protection against water ingress.

This modern method of construction allows for facade system to be installed in a factory setting with less waste than traditional construction and significantly reduces installation time and the need for skilled labour.
