A quarter of the homes created by Galliford Try are affordable, and, as a developer we are able to offer a range of shared ownership and intermediate rent arrangements through our partnered Registered Social Landlords.
Our approach is to focus on excellence: Excellence of design. Excellence in the places we create. Excellence in the service we provide to our clients and customers.
Linden Homes were selected as Greater London’s (GLA) Development Partner in October 2012 to deliver the redevelopment of St Clements hospital.
The St Clements redevelopment will be London’s first Community Land Trust (CLT) whereby the freehold of the development will be held in Trust by the Ricardo Community Foundation.
The residential led scheme will provide 252 homes (178 private, 51 affordable rented and 23 affordable home ownership) in existing and new buildings, together with green spaces including a kitchen garden, and various community and commercial uses at the front of the site in the John Denham Building and Bungalow Building.
Since being selected in October Linden Homes and architects John Thompson and Partners have been working with the community and other key stakeholders to develop a vision for the site including the preservation of important historic buildings, namely a nineteenth century, grade-II listed workhouse.
Linden Homes is one of three Galliford Try Group companies which have been selected as preferred developer by Greater London Authority (GLA) to construct the Silvertown Way development in Canning Town, East London.
The prestigious development will be delivered through an existing joint venture vehicle with Thames Valley Housing Association, which will create over 1,100 mixed tenure homes across 11 individual blocks designed by awarding-winning architects John Thompson & Partners, making it the largest standalone housing scheme that the company has undertaken.
Linden Homes in addition to two other Galliford Try Group companies: Galliford Try Partnerships and Galliford Try Infrastructure will deliver the development which includes homes for sale, rent and shared ownership, a hotel, restaurant, commercial space and in turn, employment.
Working with Westco Properties Limited, Linden Homes is creating a major regeneration scheme in Devonport, Plymouth. The scheme will comprise demolition of rundown council flats and houses and provide a modern new community, creating up to 500 residential units over the lifetime of the project.
Working with the Homes and Communities Agency, Linden Homes is creating an exciting regeneration development in Camborne, close to the town centre.
Boslowen, which is Cornish for “happy home”, will feature 407 new homes comprising a range of one, two, three and four bedroom properties, all with contemporary designs, bespoke to the scheme. The scheme is a major renewal project in the context of the Urban Regeneration Plan for the Camborne, Pool and Redruth former industrial area of central Cornwall.
More than 20 per cent of the homes will be designated as affordable housing and the look and feel of the development has been designed to fit in with the surrounding area, created with local labour and materials. Linden Homes is working with Devon and Cornwall and Coastline housing on the delivery of the affordable homes and the creation of a successful mixed tenure community.
Before work could commence, substantial remediation work was completed on this technically challenging site.
Cholsey Meadows, Cholsey, Oxfordshire is to deliver 224 new homes of which 51 are for affordable housing. The site is located within Grade II listed grounds which has required a sensitive approach to development.
To support the delivery of the affordable housing on this important rural site, Galliford Try secured funding of £3.5m from the Homes and Communities Agency. The affordable housing units are tenure blind and are delivered to the highest level of design and sustainability.
