Schneider Electric & Totally Modular Address Housing Challenges in Coventry

Totally Modular - Modular Housing - Wiring Accessory - Consumer Units

Schneider Electric Consumer Unit

Schneider Electric has entered into a strategic partnership with Totally Modular, a pioneer in modular housing, to supply electrical solutions for their modular homes.

The homes are built specifically for affordable and social housing and are designed and constructed inside Totally Modular’s factory facilities in Cradley Heath. Modular housing is a modern method of construction, which delivers high quality homes, with less wastage and at a faster rate than traditional housebuilding. It is therefore becoming a popular method to help alleviate the housing crisis in the UK.

Schneider Electric is responsible for supplying the electrics installed in these homes. The products installed include the Lisse White Moulded wiring accessory range as well as the Easy9 consumer units. The Lisse white moulded range offers the perfect blend of style and performance. Lisse is packed with a vast array of technical features, providing a high level of quality, reliability and value you can count on. The Easy9 range offers stylish, efficient and practical solutions at competitive prices. This range has a sleek, curved profile with a crisp white finish to compliment any home.

“We are in the midst of a housing crisis – there’s no escaping that. We need solutions and we need them fast. That is why we are keen as a company to support the adoption of modern methods of construction in the housing market. At Schneider Electric, we are proud to be supplying Totally Modular with the electrical accessories needed to make a house a safe and comfortable place to live”, said Louisa Buckley, Segment Marketing Manager at Schneider Electric.

Schneider - Louisa BuckleBrian Maunder, Founder of Totally Modular said that, “The social and affordable housing market has been neglected over the last 30 years. Year on year we’ve not hit the targets required for the country and the population. As a result – we have pent up demand. Between one and two million homes are needed today. The local authorities and housing associations are looking for solutions – and factory delivered homes is one of the solutions to that.”

Maunder continues, “We chose Schneider Electric to partner with because predominantly we are looking for quality partners – with a similar vision to what we are trying to achieve. Quality products, and quality homes, that stand the test of time. We’re grateful to all our partners for their support in plugging the affordable housing gap.”
