Ethical housebuilder appoints two contractors for £150m deal

Ethical housebuilder Aster Group has appointed two contractors to a new partnering arrangement worth £150m.

Galliford Try Partnerships and Gloucester-based EG Carter & Co Ltd have partnered with Aster to deliver a future land-led programme over the next five years.

This will see up to 500 new homes being delivered across the South of England each year for the group and is part of Aster’s wider plans to invest £1.5bn in new homes between now and 2024, including the delivery of a record 1,110 properties during 2017/18. 

“We are increasing the number of homes we build every year and our footprint continues to expand across the South of England,” said Tony Clifford, assistant development director at Aster Group.

“We have recognised that by working closely with the right number of contractors who share our vision, we can build strong long-term partnerships that will support Aster in delivering more land-led opportunities over the coming years.

“These partnerships complement the delivery of our section 106 developments and support our vision that everyone has a home.”

Marc Thompson, head of strategy and projects at Galliford Try Partnerships, said: “Galliford Try Partnerships has ambitious plans for growth throughout the South of England and strategic partnerships with like-minded organisations such as Aster are key to delivering our goals.

“We look forward to working with Aster over the coming years to help them realise their ambitions and increase the supply of housing for local communities.”
