Facit Homes is an award-winning design and build company dedicated to delivering contemporary, low carbon homes.
Our mission is to build a better future, one home at a time.
Established in 2007, Facit Homes was born out of a frustration with the status quo. We set out to create a better, smarter way to deliver new homes.
Our founding team’s previous experience of designing and building homes showed that conventional methods were full of inconsistency and inefficiency. With ‘interpretations’ of drawings on site and the confusion and miscommunication caused by involving dozens of different people, each with their own agenda, the result was never quite what was expected.
Modern digital manufacturing techniques have revolutionised the way we make things, from cars to smartphones, allowing one company to control the entire process. We asked ourselves if this technology could bring more clarity and certainty to creating homes and provide a better service and end product for the customer. Could we take house building into the digital age and manufacture homes? Years of research and development, testing and refining the process proved that we could.
Since featuring on Grand Designs as an exciting innovation – “the world’s first computer-cut house” – we have gone on to become an established, industry-leading company, delivering high performance homes across the UK.
In 2018 our success was recognised by receipt of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, with the judges describing our revolutionary approach as “exceptionally efficient and environmentally respectful”.
A multidisciplinary team with a wide range of backgrounds and experience,
we are architects, designers, technicians, specialist fabricators, site coordinators and contract managers. Our combined expertise covers the
broad spectrum of skills required to deliver cutting edge, bespoke homes.
As a team we are constantly innovating and developing the way we work together in order to improve our product and our service. And we always have some fun along the way.
