Colmore Tang Construction (CTC) has launched a specialist arm to provide a bespoke service to housing associations and providers of social housing.
Colmore Tang Living aims to source land in the east, west and south Midlands to deliver up to 100 high-quality houses per site. It promises to be a valuable asset to housing associations that have begun ambitious acquisition programmes to satisfy the need for land to deliver 250,000 new homes over the next five years, said Andy Robinson, CEO of Colmore Tang Group.
“In the past five years since we launched CTC, we’ve delivered more than 2,000 homes for private sale and rent, so the move into social housing is the obvious next step for us,” he said. “Social housing is an increasingly important area and the need to build hundreds of thousands of homes has never been more urgent.
“Our expertise in identifying suitable sites and bringing them through the planning process, as well as delivering maximum value and providing the skills to deliver and construct quality homes, means we are in the ideal position to work alongside social housing providers. It’s also heartening to be able to deliver our quality homes with a social purpose.”
The organisation has said that the launch of Colmore Tang Living will also enable it to enter the off-site manufacturing market, building the houses using modern methods of construction.
Colmore Tang Living aims to be on its first site in Q2 2019 and is already in advanced discussions with housing associations about sourcing appropriate plots for development.
