DESIGN

Nova’s design team continually drive value and efficiency by promoting the intelligent use of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and Lean manufacturing techniques to eliminate waste.
We adopt a ‘fabric first’ approach to the design of our buildings and aim to minimise the need for energy consumption through methods such as;

Airtightness

Maximising airtightness

Insulation

Increased levels of insulation

Solar gain

Through the provision of openings and shading

thermal mass

Using the thermal mass of the building fabric

Nova Structures’ product offer includes a range of Detached, Semi-Detached, and Terraced houses, all built to the highest standards in a factory-controlled environment and Designed for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA). At Nova, we do not fit the external finishes to the modules in the factory as our modules have been designed to allow clients their choice of external elevational finishes, and these could include:

Brickwork

Traditional Clay Brickwork

Brick Slip

Brick Slip System

Cladding Board

Rainscreen Cladding

Blockwork & Natural Stone

Rendered Blockwork & Knapped Flint

Tiles

Wall Hung Tiles

Foundations

Nova modular houses are designed to sit on a variety of different foundation solutions, dependent upon local ground conditions. These include strip, pad, ground bearing, slab, piles, ground beams and an insulated slab.
