Morlich Homes grow with Green Jobs Fund

Moray Housebuilder growing with Green Jobs funding

Morlich Homes Ltd was awarded £87,000 through the Green Jobs Fund for their £1.1m project to establish a new production facility for sustainable modular timber frame homes.

The company purchased a site at Elgin Business Park and it is expected to create up to 14 full time jobs once the new facility in complete. The project will bring about several environmental benefits linked to low carbon and waste reduction.

The new production facility will enable the firm to deliver EPC ‘A’ rated sustainable and thermally efficient modular timber frame homes on all of its developments for both private and social housing clients.

Reduced heating needs of the new homes will significantly lower carbon emissions and energy bills for the end user. The increase in factory prefabrication capacity will mean less construction on site, fewer deliveries to construction sites and less waste in materials.

John Main, director of Morlich Homes Ltd, said that the new production facility will assist in minimising the business's environmental impact with many energy-saving features.

He said: “Our new 6500Sq ft building will improve the working environment for the team with a bespoke office layout for improved teamwork and collaborative working.

“The new facility represents a significant investment for us and underpins our commitment to delivering quality energy efficient homes in locations throughout the region.

“The building will be home to our technical and commercial teams and also facilitate the creation of another 14 positions over the coming years including future apprenticeship opportunities within various aspects of the business.
