BIOHAUS® technology receives coveted BOPAS accreditation.

We are delighted to announce that the innovative, bio-based, MMC CAT 2 panellised building system, BIOHAUS®, has received prestigious accreditation from BOPAS (BuildOffsite Property Assurance Scheme) for buildings up to three storeys.

This milestone confirms that the climate-positive, whole-house system meets the highest industry standards for robustness and durability, providing further opportunity for system development up to five storeys or 18 metres.

The BIOHAUS® system raises the bar and demonstrates a highly scalable climate-positive solution for the built environment.

● A comprehensive 2-hour fire performance.
