Housing New Build

Historically one of Thomas Vale's oldest markets, the New Build Housing Division has the understanding needed to fulfil and exceed Client's aspirations and expectations.

The need to provide sufficient affordable housing continues to present a growing challenge for all Stakeholders involved in its delivery. The nationwide requirement to build ‘more for less’, tackle community and regeneration issues and address growing environmental standards only intensifies the challenge ahead.

We consistently seek to improve the affordable housing stock and increase the number of new homes for rent and homebuy via registered Social Landlords and Local Authorities.

Thomas Vale has always sought to lead the field in terms of its vision of the future, and to date has in excess of 20 framework agreements with a range of social housing providers and plays an active role in encouraging innovation through collaboration.
