HAB Housing was founded by Kevin McCloud in order to challenge the way identikit volume housing was built in the UK. We build beautiful, environmentally friendly homes that are designed and customised around your needs and lifestyle. The sustainable homes and places we create respect the local context and biodiversity and are strongly rooted in history, landscape and the community.
We are recognised as leaders in sustainable development, favouring a fabric-first approach to environmental construction with a focus on biodiversity, edible landscapes and sustainable drainage. We adopt an intelligent balanced, holistic approach in line with One Planet Living principles and we’re committed to ensuring that our homes are economic and efficient to run.
We cut our teeth on projects such as the Triangle in Swindon, which we completed in 2011, and Applewood in Stroud where we built carefully-crafted, contemporary homes set amidst plentiful landscaped space.
As the business grew we set out to develop a more collaborative relationship with investors and customers. We financed this expansion and brought 650 new investors into the business through a world record crowd fund in 2013. The way we deliver our new homes, via the custom build model whereby we bring customers into the centre of the design process of their homes, continues this process.
At our office in Bristol’s Enterprise Zone we have lights on motion sensors, use environmentally friendly office supplies, recycle our waste and are paperless where possible. We’re also lucky to be located next to the train station making travelling around using public transport a breeze.
