The Sovereign Development Consortium (SDC) is an alliance of seven landlords and housing providers in the south and south west.
Our regional overview and strong relationships with national and local developers, means we can build houses where they are needed most, including both rural and urban schemes. We also tailor our developments to fit in with local requirements, such as local lettings, local labour, supported housing and resident involvement.
Working together we keep procurement costs down, increase efficiencies, bid effectively for funding, and share best practice when building homes.
Since forming in 2004, we’ve exceeded government targets with a focus on:
building quality homes faster
building more cost-effectively
making sure homes are energy efficiency
having the right mix of tenures, including rent, shared ownership, and outright sale
creating attractive estates with designs that cut crime and traffic, and provide options for housing to be altered or extended for changing family circumstances.
We believe close industry relationships are vital to achieve the quality, savings and speed paramount in the current housing climate. Working together, developers can advise on the latest construction techniques, while landlords can provide influence on the supply chain and encourage local labour.
