Why shouldn’t health care & education be delivered through building homes?
The homes are now finished! We are incredibly proud of what our groups and our team have achieved – our first homes built during challenging times with the pandemic – and what a result! This scheme demonstrates what is possible when we dare to dream and believe in a holistic way of delivering housing.
We create spectacular buildings fit for future – buildings which tackle inequality and social exclusion through how they are built and how they impact people and the wider environment in their use.
By putting vulnerable communities at the very centre of building their own affordable/social housing, we deliver clinically-valid health care as well as tackling poverty through the medium of building houses fit for the future. Our houses are built with natural, local materials (For the first time, roof trusses have been manufactured from Welsh timber), and are “homes as power stations” – they generate more electricity than they consume.
Our houses enhance the life chances of communities through both their construction and occupancy by being fully natural, breatheable and non-toxic. It’s time to deliver the Future Generations Act with boldness & vision.
First scheme – Pennard site with Coastal Housing Group
Funded through the Welsh Government Innovative Housing Programme (IHP), this was our first step into applying our approach to the housing sector. Entirely built out of Welsh timber and using natural insulation, we built 6 semi-detached 2 bedroom houses for Coastal Housing Group. We started on site in early Autumn 2020 and completed in June 2021 demonstrating our approach is both viable and scalable. Exciting times!
We have built these homes for Coastal Housing Group. If you have any enquiries about tenancy, please contact Coastal Housing Group.
