In the last five years, we’ve built 254 homes across west London. We plan to build 357 more before 2022.
Our homes and developments have a community focus. Homes are of mixed tenure, including for social rent and shared ownership. They understand what residents need, and appreciate the history of the area – even down to their names.
We’re also building community facilities and commercial units, benefitting local people and businesses. In all our developments, we’re committed to investing in the community – and our business has won awards for our home-building.
“SBHG is one of our premier partners in helping us deliver affordable social housing in the borough,” said Hounslow council leader, Cllr Steve Curran. “It’s heartening to see we can have a real impact to help change people’s lives for the better. SBHG always deliver on development. They work with us and make it happen for local people.”

This development, SBHG's first Passivhaus scheme, is designed to improve energy efficiency. Residents of its 14 affordable homes should see reductions in their energy bills of up to 80%.
In addition to the homes already built, there are plans for a further two units and a wildflower meadow. This is planned for completion in late 2018.

Our residents say...
Caroline Huntingford lives in one of our new homes in Calverton Place, Horsenden.
“I had a stroke and had to move out of my upstairs flat. This place was a saviour – I started to cry when I saw it. I was so overwhelmed. This place is massive. I have enough space to get my wheelchair around it. It really suits my needs. It’s nice to be by the ‘countryside’. It is quiet around here. There are a couple of local shops. The staff were really helpful when I moved in.”
We work with Octavia Housing and Origin Housing as Connected.
Together, we’ve delivered 2600 homes since 2005 and in 2014 we were allocated over £18 million in the Mayor’s Housing Covenant to build 718 more.
In a joint statement, Connected's chief executives said: “This allocation means we can build more homes that are truly affordable in some of the most expensive areas of the capital, creating truly inclusive communities.”
