Social Housing Projects

Housing built with the community in mind

Social housing, provided by housing associations or local councils, are a vital support system for families and individuals. Good social housing provides security and affordability to those who need it. However, housing charity Shelter says that there are over a million households on waiting lists in England alone, due to a chronic shortage of social homes. That’s why renovating and developing more social housing – and ensuring they are homes that are built to last – is of utmost importance to combat the UK’s housing crisis.

When designing new social housing developments, or renovating older properties, architects and contractors need to put quality-of-life at the forefront. Better insulation, improved energy efficiency and durability are all top priorities for social housing architects, ensuring that residents can enjoy their secure, affordable home for years to come.
