Leaving a positive legacy.
How we approach our work.
Successful regeneration involves distinct skills and the ability to work collaboratively with a number of partners, including other developers, local authorities and RSLs, Government agencies, educational bodies, community groups and the voluntary sector. United House is involved in a number of complex regeneration programmes, evidence of our multi-disciplinary expertise as a developer, contractor, and investor.
Many regeneration schemes are part-funded through cross-subsidy from the sale of private homes. Our expertise in the private market from design right through to marketing and sales ensures we deliver the full financial potential of cross-subsidy development.
But regeneration is first and foremost about people, and about leaving a thriving community and lasting legacy long after our projects have been delivered.
Regeneration schemes often have residents-in-occupation and therefore present a practical challenge to manage and maintain their day-to-day living while major construction work takes place. Reassuring residents and keeping them informed, involved and on-side requires diplomacy and understanding as well as dedicated logistical support. In this, the skills of our Resident Liaison Officers and the efficiency of our logistics systems come to the fore.
We always aim to make a positive difference to the communities in which we work, to support and encourage sustainable community regeneration. We work closely with our clients to improve neighbourhoods and lives by creating bespoke packages of initiatives that link directly to the objectives of our partners’ social agendas. This might involve working in schools, with community groups, or the voluntary sector, and we have a community development team with an active programme to support this.
