Housing Capacity

When it comes to housing, the problems we face as a nation are well versed. Generational neglect when it comes to housebuilding has left us at crisis point. Our cities are swelling, our population ageing and prices rising so rapidly that home-ownership is unlikely to be a reality for a growing number of young people. In the UK, we do not have the enough homes of the right tenure.

What is more, even where the will exists to build, in certain parts of the country there is simply not the capacity within industry to deliver them as quickly as we need them.  At Arcadis, we understand the issues the nation faces when it comes to housing. From high end prime developments to build-to-rent, and student accommodation to private sale, our people work to alleviate pressure on supply and affordability.

Be it ensuring a prime London residential scheme is financially viable or ensuring an inner city brownfield site is ready for development, we understand the myriad of complex issues that make housebuilding such a challenge to our society and our economy.  We provide skills and employment opportunities across the country, as well as making the UK more competitive through creating the homes needed to boost economic productivity.
