BRE Standard for Modular Sytstems

The BRE has developed a Product Standard to provide a route to certification for offsite/modular construction for use as residential buildings.

The Standard (Product Standard (BPS) 7014)  sets out performance requirements in a number of technical areas. Some of the requirements are mandatory, such as for fire and structural performance, and are required to demonstrate regulatory compliance. Other performance assessments are voluntary. The requirements have been subject to detailed consultation with the Advanced Manufacturing of Homes Buildings and Infrastructure (AMHBI) project consortium and other industry stakeholders.

The Standard was recently open for consultation, and we apologise that we missed the boat on this for you, but the draft is still available and we will keep an eye out for the finalised standards when they are published. You can read the draft here.
