Celebrating its rapid growth and commitment to innovation, SO Modular Ltd has been named as one of the winners at The Welsh Women’s Awards, which took place on 3 April.
The awards, which took place at The Exchange Hotel, Cardiff, recognised Charlotte Hale, director of SO Modular, as the winner of the Entrepreneur of the Year award for her commitment to developing and growing the company since its launch in June 2018.
SO Modular continues to be at the forefront of innovative and creative solutions within the construction industry, pushing boundaries and developing products that enable it to boost efficiency, sustainability and cost-effectiveness across a diverse range of construction projects.
Its current research and development projects consist of manufacturing carbon-neutral but affordable timber-frame homes. These thermally efficient homes have U-values so low, they require minimal heating and cooling, potentially completely removing the need for a central heating system at all.
Charlotte Hale, director of SO Modular, said:
“I am thrilled to have won Entrepreneur of the Year at The Welsh Women’s Awards. I am passionate about making SO Modular an innovative, environmentally friendly and sustainable company – with the aim of making our planet as sustainable as can be.
“We have some really exciting plans for the next 12 months that will see SO Modular expand, grow and create more jobs, which in turn will support the local economy.”
