We understand our customers’ aspirations – and share in their passion to help create strong, sustainable communities through new build projects. We seek to play an important role in the market our customers operate in, making positive changes to the way new housing is delivered. We are working with BiTC, the Smith Institute, the Housing Forum, the Homes and Communities Agency and the Mayor of London to influence future housing policy and generate more opportunities for public and private sectors to create positive change in deprived communities.
- Experience and expertise. We are currently delivering on 30 new build frameworks across the UK. We can deliver mixed-tenure, mixed-use schemes which provide cross-subsidy for good quality, affordable new homes.
- Grant funding. As an Investment Partner with the HCA, we can help you apply for grants across a range of new build projects at a time when funding is tighter than ever.
- Better handover. Our New Build Handover process ensures all projects are delivered in a controlled, managed and professional manner. It covers all key stages from bidding, project delivery, handover experience and customer care period.
- Sustainable development. Our ground-breaking innovation includes the largest installation of solar technology on a housing project in the UK, while our Target Zero programme will see us eliminate all non-hazardous waste to landfill by 2010.
