- We are Infrastructure-led, implementing the infrastructure required to support new homes at the outset of a project.
- We are committed to delivering policy compliant affordable homes, having never run a viability exercise.
- Our affordable product is delivered tenure-blind to the same quality and finish as the private homes, ensuring an integrated community from the outset.
Our approach to sustainability is industry leading. We are driving industry change already through our projects, supply chain, industry groups, think tanks and engagement with government departments.The commitments to sustainability we have made put us at the forefront of zero carbon placemaking in the UK, and whilst our target is to meet our three key commitments by 2025, we are already well on the way to achieving them; our house types are 56% more efficient than building regulations and what’s more, our scheme in Bookham, Surrey, achieved a biodiversity net gain of 41.38%.We have enjoyed a leading role within the Future Homes Hub’s taskforce, a cross-industry advisory group formed by The Future Homes Task Force to help the construction industry meet climate and environmental targets in home building. In 2021, Thakeham became the UK’s first housebuilder on the SME Climate Hub to join the United Nations’ ‘Race to Zero’ campaign.
