Social Housing

Well-designed housing contributes to stable communities and creates attractive places to live. The challenge for social housing is to maintain this quality within restrained budgets and, often, difficult sites.

Our Social Housing experience includes estate regeneration, infill sites, renovation and conversion projects, some within conservation areas or listed buildings.

We have considerable expertise in specialist housing including:

  • Supported housing for people with learning disabilities or mental health issues
  • Remodelling sheltered housing to current standards
  • Mixed tenure and mixed use
  • Complex and constrained sites.

For residents on low incomes, low running costs are vital. Our skills in low energy housing design (including Passivhaus) can deliver homes with enviably low bills and high thermal comfort. The Passivhaus approach has also been shown to reduce rent arrears for landlords.
