From the way we build our homes to the communities that surround them, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

Through our sustainability focussed schemes, ambitious targets and conscious approach to construction, we go the extra mile to ensure we have a positive impact on our residents, local communities, and the environment, both now and in the future.

More than just energy efficiency

Everything we do is guided by our Sustainability Plan – our strategy for creating better places for people and the environment. We’re committed to setting a higher standard in the creation of our homes, to act as a blueprint for other homebuilders and to change the residential landscape for the better.

From the outset of any new development, we prioritise sustainability – we even choose the dimensions of our homes in line with brick sizes to minimise waste. We are the first homebuilder in the UK to become a Gold Member of The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside, aiming to enhance biodiversity for the benefit of local wildlife and communities.

Energy efficiency is built into every aspect of our homes, with triple glazing as standard, aluminium frames, and an intelligent smart tech heating system that learns how you live and heats your home accordingly, reducing energy usage and bills. And through our Innovate lab, we’re always researching and developing new ways to reduce our impact on the planet.

Sustainability Plan

As a new homebuilding company, we intend to push ourselves each year to implement more vigorous, meaningful targets that contribute to reducing our carbon footprint and enhancing the communities we are operating within.

Our sustainability principles

With these principles, we set ourselves a higher standard for sustainability across our communities and seek to continuously improve the way we do things. At each community we:


Create opportunities for people to lead better, more prosperous lives


Engage with local people to understand the needs of existing and future communities


Develop highly sustainable and smart-built environments


Embrace a low carbon energy strategy


Strive to put more back into the natural environment than is taken out


Support the health and wellbeing of communities by creating beautiful, functional and well-used green public spaces


Promote sustainable transport options for all

Our sustainable development goals

We use five of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to guide our activity and make sure that sustainability feeds into every aspect of our homebuilding process.

Our commitment to sustainability… for your community.
