We have been involved in residential development for many years. The Company built large estates of public and private housing in the post war years. We continued building public housing for local councils and housing associations during the 1970s and 80s. As the emphasis turned to improvement and refurbishment of existing homes we undertook many large modernisation programmes, replacing kitchens, modernising bathrooms and installing central heating to hundreds of council houses across the region.

Throughout the same period we have:

  • developed individually designed homes for sale on small developments
  • Converted listed buildings to provide family homes and apartments
  • Completed barn conversions to provide prestige new homes
  •  Built contemporary and traditional extensions in individual designs for private clients

Most recently, we have completed a number of regeneration and refurbishment projects, working with both private sector and public sector property owners to deliver projects of varying types, including:

  • Five phases of regeneration in East Durham, including more than 350 homes
  • ‘Decent Homes’ standard projects for RSLs across the Region
  • Award winning conversion of farm buildings to provide affordable homes for the elderly
  • Wall insulation upgrades as part of the Green Deal initiative
  • Structural repairs and renewal of windows and doors as part of RSLs planned maintenance programmes

We have brought together a number of case studies that illustrate some of the most recent examples of this work.
