Final phase modular accommodation building launched at Emmaus
We are delighted to have now installed the final phase of accommodation for Emmaus Hastings and Rother, a homeless charity that provides work and living space for people
Back in 20009 we were instructed to manufacture a 23 bedroom, en-suite modular accommodation block, incorporating management accommodation, a communal living room, laundry room, common areas and kitchen facilities. The facility has also been built to include a bedroom and en-suite facilities which can be used by companions living with disability.
The 16 module building, which is configured over two floors, was manufactured, delivered and installed in three phases to enable the Charity to raise funds at each stage. The final phase was installed last week and now all 23 rooms are available to be used.
The building is named Charlie Jordan House in honour of the first Chairman of Emmaus Hastings and Rother, and was officially launched by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall in December 2013. The Duchess has been a patron of Emmaus since 2006.

Danzer Ltd Director Dan Holloway, said: “It’s great to see the final phase up and running and it is a project with which we are very proud to have been involved. Getting the Royal seal of approval last year was just great but it’s even better to know that these units are now fully functioning and available for people without homes.”
Emmaus Hastings and Rother provides a home and meaningful work for 15 people who have experienced homelessness. The companions live on site in the purpose-built accommodation and they work in the charity’s social enterprise, a shop selling second-hand furniture and other donated items, and a recently opened café.
