Fibo innovative wall panels are being used in a new modular build development in Widnes for Halton Housing. Offsite specialist Simply Modular is building four of the eight houses in an initial trial, which aims to demonstrate the value of modular construction. The total time for the build of all four 2-bed properties is sixteen weeks, with onsite foundations and factory assembly completed in May.
Fibo’s Traditional range of wall panels are being used for kitchen splashbacks and shower areas. “I first saw Fibo at the CIH Housing Show in Manchester last year,” comments Allan Foster, Technical Director of Simply Modular. “We’d only used ceramic tiles before, as wall panels in general have a lot of catching up to do on quality: but Fibo is far superior. The panels are absolutely brilliant in terms of the time and skillset required for installation, and the quality is there too, with a good choice of finishes and colours.”
