Building homes in 2018

We're building!

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.”
