The Futureproof Approach to Development

Futureproof is the name of our disruptive, new approach to development that will deliver beautifully designed new homes in zero carbon communities. We use a genuinely collaborative model where the typical short term development margin is retained within the development, helping us to create much more attractive and sustainable neighbourhoods, enhancing demand and sales rates and ultimately providing a more robust, long-term return for investors. The result? Everybody benefits from the process, not just shareholders – from investors to the supply chain to households themselves.

Zero Carbon Buildings and Neighbourhoods

Futureproof homes will be operationally net zero carbon, with a highly efficient building envelope guaranteed using advanced manufacture (MMC). They will be oriented to make the most of heat and light from the Sun and to maximise the use of solar energy technologies, whilst benefiting from innovative and sustainable infrastructure. Furthermore, the off-site precision build of the homes will dramatically reduce embodied carbon and help minimise construction waste.

Habitable, Affordable, Flexible

Futureproof homes will be designed to be accessible, adaptable and flexible with lifetime living in mind. Homes will be configured for different lifestyle choices, with additional provision of social spaces, work spaces and multigenerational living options. They will be designed to be fully adapted to future changes in the climate while continuing to provide a high quality, healthy living environment.

Robust and Replicable

Futureproof homes will be precision manufactured off-site with a modular, adaptable design and will come with a 75-year warranty. The scale at which futureproof operates ensures efficiency and productivity are optimised, whilst ensuring sufficient design flexibility to meet local design and planning aspirations.

Positive Ecological and Biodiversity Credentials

Futureproof developments will be dominated by high quality green space, with homes sitting within areas filled with native trees, shrubs and plants. Designed with wildlife in mind, the schemes will improve biodiversity, creating abundant and attractive landscapes for all to enjoy, whilst supporting improved health and wellbeing.
