Development team success
Congratulations go to our Development team for being nominated in the Best Development (small) category at the Inside Housing Awards this year. It was tough competition and they were up against seven other nominees with Thrive Homes eventually taking the winning prize at the awards ceremony last night.
These awards are an opportunity for landlords, developers and architects to enter their best developments and teams to be recognised in the UK.
Our development team is not typical of other smaller housing associations as it is an integrated one with the development section working alongside our in-house sales and construction teams. They are responsible for tasks that are traditional within a development role; that of sourcing sites, building professional teams to purchase, design, cost model and otherwise evaluate and bring sites to reality.
It is then down to the Construction team to manage the in-house building process; working with specialist labour and local sub-contractors to produce our properties, managing several sites and dealing with different challenges at each one.
The final stage is with the sales team (Hawksworth Homes) who not only sell the new shared ownership homes but also our existing stock, completing sales last year worth over £4m to the Group.
