Over the last couple of months we have been busy recruiting the key professional advisors who will be working for us as we develop homes on our small site at The Lawns, SE19.
One of these will be Brick by Brick. Brick by Brick is a development company that was set up by Croydon Council to build new houses on sites across across the borough. The Council is their sole share holder so all profits made by the company are returned to the Council and used to fund front line services.
However, unlike on other Brick by Brick projects, we will be the client, not the Council, and our Board will ensure that our homes are designed and built in the best interests of the local community as this is one of our core objectives.
Working with Brick by Brick makes financial sense as some of their professional services will be free of charge in the early stages of the project and we will benefit from economies of scale on other services – cost savings like these will help towards our aim to provide homes which are as affordable as possible.
