Homes for need,
Low Carbon Construction is a private, national housebuilder. Our prime objective is to provide additional, affordable housing across all tenures within the UK, thus working towards achieving a balanced housing market.
The very first design sketch for a totally revolutionary building method was drawn by us in 2010. Acknowledging the urgent need to provide affordable housing across the UK, by 2015 we had established a viable affordable housing strategy and are now backed by a 70-strong supply chain.
Using our revolutionary building Offsite/ Onsite method of SIP volumetric house manufacture, we are only limited in the volume of homes we can produce, by the land availability and planning approvals.
Our homes are truly
Our homes can be constructed faster.

The housing crisis deepens
All of the major house builders in the UK simply cannot afford to deliver affordable housing in this way and cannot continue to be ‘forced’ into building uneconomic homes, inevitably raising pricing to compensate. It is well publicised that these companies actively ‘avoid’ social housing provision wherever possible for the very real reason of economic survival. Therefore the homes that people truly need and can afford are not being provided.
We can see this simply does not work and we agree with the previous comments from the then Communities Secretary and former Chancellor, Sajid Javid, in saying that: “The housing market in this country is broken and the solution means building many more houses in the places that people want to live.”

Press and media
We welcome press enquiries, and can furnish you with unbiased views for your commentary pages, ready-created material including photography, as well as making our spokespeople available for interview.
In the context of the climate emergency, current standards do not go far enough to address this very urgent problem. Affordable energy efficient buildings with low energy requirements and low embodied carbon materials are paramount to contribute towards lower emissions.
A financial helping hand
Our ethos now extends to our financial assistance – arranged by Low Carbon Construction Finance – who are able to offer a vast range of residential and commercial mortgage solutions tailored to individual circumstances.
