Our future priorities

Our mission statement is 'creating places where people want to live'.

  • Continue to drive up service quality to rank among the best of our peers
  • Expand our development pipeline from 15,000 to 50,000 homes
  • Double our output, so that we are building 5,000 homes a year by 2020
  • Deliver efficiency and quality in our homes and services by rolling out our Direct Maintenance division and expanding Quadrant Construction
