We continue to focus on the priorities of customer safety, protecting employees and business resilience. Please read here for our latest position. For customer information, please visit our dedicated coronavirus webpage.

With an operational area spanning the Midlands, East and the South East, our developments range from small schemes of two or three homes in rural villages through to sites of hundreds of homes in towns and cities, from greenfield sites to urban regeneration projects.

We build a variety of homes from one bedroom apartments through to large family homes and Independent Living homes for the over 55s. Our developments include a mix of tenure from Market Sale, Shared Ownership and Shared Equity.

We have a strategic partnership with Homes England which will see a further 2,414 affordable new homes in development by 2022 and share Orbit Group’s profit-for-purpose ethos, reinvesting our profits to improve the quality of our homes, our services and our communities.

Our homes: sector leading designs and specifications

We want to ensure that our new homes and developments are sector leading and that the processes we have established provide a robust platform which will serve us for years to come, ensuring that we always deliver new homes to the highest possible standard.

We have invested in all aspects of design and specification, from the introduction of our own Design Standards for the creation of our homes and communities, to our own house type range, and all our homes are built to Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Safer by Design Gold Standard, ensuring that our homes are amongst the safest on the market.

Working with interior designers to create aspirational interiors means our homes look good as well as ensuring they meet the current and future needs of our residents, with improved safety and accessibility features.

Visit Orbit Homes

Orbit Homes has set a standard of being an early adopter of our 'Safer by Design framework ' that offers achievable ways to reduce the number of domestic accidents. RoSPA wants to make houses of the future safer places to be and we are delighted to have Orbit Homes as a partner in this journey.

Modern methods of construction

We see offsite manufacture housing as an important part of the future of housing in the UK. There are a number of projects being delivered around the country where we are exploring MMC innovations, including our partnership with ilke Homes to deliver the first volumetric MMC development at Wellesbourne.

Modular housing significantly reduces the impact on the environment through off-site, energy-efficient construction, minimised material procurement and wastage and reduced transportation required to and from site. The homes look exactly the same as a finished brick-built house but are more energy-efficient, resulting in a lower carbon footprint and reduced heating costs for our customers.
