A picture of Partnerships

By working with partners who share our values and objectives we can achieve more and deliver better value for money.

To this end we set up and led a consortium of organisations with specialist skills and knowledge, enabling us to concentrate on our own specialisms. Consequently, we work closely with a variety of partners across the public, private and third sector to help us deliver life-changing housing developments. Some of our partnership schemes are shown below:

Cumbernauld, Scotland

This £75 million regeneration programme, in partnership with residents, North Lanarkshire Council and the Scottish Government, is transforming the Cumbernauld landscape. By its completion in 2020, 12 ageing high-rise blocks of flats will have been demolished and replaced with more than 400 energy-efficient homes.

Kingsley Road.

Kingsley Road, Toxteth, Liverpool

An innovative scheme combining self-build and volunteering opportunities for residents. In partnership with charity ‘Housing People, Building Communities (HPBC)’, we built 23 family homes for shared ownership. Uniquely, homeowners spend 500 hours working at the site in return for a £10,000 discount on the property price. The project has received national recognition by winning numerous awards including being named as a finalist in Inside Housing’s top 60 developments.
