ARC Building Solutions has recently been selected to support the building of a unique innovation centre at Vistry’s sector-leading MMC factory in Leicestershire.

The new Innovation Centre, the VIC, features a state-of-the-art showcase, designed to showcase cutting edge technologies as part of a drive to reduce heat waste and promote the construction of more sustainable new build homes.

Imperative to the delivery of the Future Homes Standard, coming into operation in 2025, and the journey towards net zero, the VIC welcomes industry stakeholders to learn about the wealth of progressive products being launched across the housebuilding sector.  Included within the Build of the Innovation Centre were our ARC TCB Square, Eaves Insulator and U-Barrier.

Innovation Within Fire Safety

With innovation at the heart of our commitment, we are proud to support initiatives to raise the profile of sustainable products in construction, supporting our own ESG targets as well as those set by governing bodies across the industry.

Aaron Sharp, Director of Sales and Specification at ARC appreciates the vital need for innovation within the sector:

“Innovation is central to everything we do at ARC, and empowering our customers to build better is our goal. When we were approached by Vistry to work on this project we were thrilled. Building for a safer, more sustainable future is pivotal. By providing a platform to showcase emerging technologies, Vistry is uniting suppliers and other stakeholders to do more. We are immensely proud to be involved, but it doesn’t stop here. We’ll continue to innovate and launch products to build for the future.”

Jack Brayshaw, Head of Technical Innovation, Vistry Group, is excited about the Innovation Centre and the collaboration with ARC:

“The new Vistry Innovation Centre at our Vistry Works East Midlands facility is exceptional. It is providing us with the opportunity to implement and trial a whole host of innovative technologies as we gear up for the introduction of the Future Homes Standard and the journey to net zero. The event has been a chance to showcase the work we are doing in this area and to illustrate the combined impact of our production capacity and sustainable advances in tackling the ongoing demand for high-quality new homes.

“Having forward-thinking suppliers such as ARC on board with a project of this magnitude is vital to its success.  ARC share our vision for the future, and continually demonstrate how their own innovative strategy fits ours.  It was a simple decision to get them involved and we look forward to growing the relationship as we all build towards a more sustainable future.”
