With more and more people on the earth, how to provide them with a ” roof over their head” efficiently has become one of the significant considerations.  We need to build more affordable, good quality homes at large scale, and fast speed, and meet the local demands. And this will not only be an issue for the UK, and the USA, it will become a global issue that every country will meet.

And how to let everyone live a happier and healthier life is not an empty talk, it is manifested in everything we do. And we hope through our SPC wall panel and flooring products, we can improve the speed of construction and provide everyone with a home they can truly live.

What Challenges We are Facing?

  • The need for speed: the faster speed for construction as well as renovation so that we can have more people settled. We need to build more social housing and make them ready to be used at a rapid speed. And when it comes to renovation, the priority is to minimize any disruption to tenants.
  • The need for affordable: social housing needs to provide people with truly affordable and secure homes for life, so that people in different stages of life can find a place for themselves.
  • The need for a long-term solution: it is not a project that has 6-12 months tenancy agreements, it is a stable home that people will stay for the long-term. The products we use need to be cost-effective without compromising performance and durability.

Then what do we want for our social housing, especially for the products used in the home?

What do We Need for Social Housing?

  • First, easier and faster installation: ground and wall are basically the largest areas in a space. And choosing the right material for these two areas is essential because it will fundamentally affect the overall speed.
  • Second, long-lasting performance: home is home, there is no difference in whether this is social housing or private housing. A successful social housing promotes health and well-being and gives people the opportunity to relax, cool, sleep and inspire in comfort. It needs to function well and also add to the overall quality of the area.
  • Then, on-trend and diverse designs: a good look is more important to tenants. It is important to consider aesthetics when renovating the bathrooms, bedrooms, or living rooms, etc.
