Our development team take a project from initial purchase through the planning and design process. We carefully select a design team of pre-qualified consultants to work with us in conceiving, securing planning permission and delivering schemes that embody our vision for the future of renting. The development team engages with stakeholders including the Greater London Authority, Borough Councils and local communities to deliver an aspirational scheme that meets the local housing need and has our future residents’ and the community’s interests at its heart.
The development team and construction team work hand-in-hand during the technical design phase to secure the delivery of a scheme on programme, on budget and on brand.
Our vision is not just to construct places to live, but to build homes that set a new standard for renting. This includes innovative solutions such as family housing with design features like wider buggy-friendly corridors, acoustic insulation and secure storage.
We’re making a long-term investment in the local area around each of our developments. As developer and operator, we have both a social and financial imperative to ensure we create thriving, cohesive and sustainable communities around each of our buildings.
Living in London often means forfeiting a garden, so we strive to use the existing space around our buildings to make communal gardens and terraces. This approach delivers high quality public realm for our residents and the public to enjoy.
Traditional housebuilders put communal space in the basement and sell the top floors for a premium. We’re turning over the most valuable floor area for communal use for everyone for free, and equipping them with a range of valuable facilities.
Every apartment is equipped with low energy LED light fittings, a smart meter to monitor energy consumption and a power ‘kill’ switch; all of which are used to drive a more sustainable solution and reduce energy consumption and utility costs to our residents.
All of our developments have excellent transport links and provide facilities that promote sustainable travel, such as car clubs, on-site cycle storage or even access to complimentary folding bicycles. We also strive to buy locally by supporting local businesses through our supply chain.
