Multi-tenure homes

As one of the UK’s leading developers of new build family homes, Avant possesses the expertise and experience to deliver its quality product on a multi-tenure basis. We are proud to provide homes for private sale, the private rented sector (PRS) and affordable housing, partnering with investors and housing associations to deliver on our vision of quality homes, for everyone across a range of tenures.

Avant is headquartered in Barlborough, Chesterfield and employs over 600 people.

We have a range of specially designed house types offering optionality for all potential partners, with an array of layouts and bedroom numbers available, including terrace, semi-detached, detached, townhouses, plus bungalows and apartments.

Where we build

We build in eight regions across the UK, predominantly in the Midlands and North of England as well as Scotland.

We acquire land, obtain planning consent, and build in fantastic locations, opening the door to a place to call home, creating inclusive communities that reflect the diversity of the regions we operate in.

Our breadth and capabilities mean that we can deliver high quality homes for partners to suit their need and requirements.

Case study

Partnership with Sigma Capital Group

In August 2023 we completed on a significant PRS deal selling 306 homes to Sigma Capital Group worth over £59.5m.

The homes are marketed under Sigma’s private rental brand, Simple Life.

Four of the developments are in the North East, two are in Yorkshire with the balance in the East Midlands.

At a time where affordability is stretched, we are passionate about playing our part in providing energy efficient, quality new homes at price points and tenures customers can afford and access.

Case study

Partnership with Trent and Dove Housing Association

In May 2024, we delivered 16 new homes for Trent and Dove Housing Association at our Cadley Park development in Swadlincote, South Derbyshire.

The deal is worth £3.6m and was a mix of three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached properties.

The town is a popular place to live, and we were proud to aid in the successful delivery of affordable housing for local people.

Timber frame modern methods of construction

We recognise the importance of modern methods of construction and are proud to own a timber frame manufacturing facility called Roof Profiles.

Based in West Scotland, Roof Profiles, can deliver sufficient timber kit houses per annum to service our Scotland region as well as external developers.

The factory has a multi-skilled workforce with semi-automated processes to deliver the necessary volume of timber kits, consisting of wall panels, roof trusses, floor cassettes and roof panels.

Roof Profiles has achieved an ISO 9001 Accreditation for quality management, giving confidence to our customers. Roof Profiles is also a member of the Structural Timber Frame Association.

As a sustainable business, Roof Profiles only uses Forest Stewardship Council and The Programme for The Endorsement of Forest Certification accredited timber suppliers.

Land and build packages

We also offer land and build packages. This is where we acquire land and then enter into a build contract to deliver 100% affordable homes on behalf of a housing association.

The house types utilised are from our core Avant range, but the housing mix, design and specification is specific to the needs of each housing association.

Housing association partnerships such as these are often partly funded by a government grant from Homes England.

Our product

We know our clients are all different, and each have their specific needs. That’s why our range of core house types have been designed to offer something for everyone. This makes us a trusted customer -orientated partner.

Our mixed tenure homes range from 1–5 bedroom properties across 1, 2 and 3 stories within terraced, semi-detached and detached arrangements.

This optionality enables us to service a variety of end-user needs and preferences with spaces suitable for professionals, growing families or those who are enjoying retirement.

Where required, our homes can adapt to the Nationally Described Space Standards (NDSS). We also provide M4(2) and M4(3) compliant homes where required and in accordance with local authority policies.

Energy efficiency

Our new build homes are energy efficient offering savings for the occupants as well as protecting the environment. Research by the Home Builders Federation has found that new build homes can save occupants on average £2,195 per year on their energy bills.

From 2025 we are committed to achieving a 75-80% reduction in CO2 emissions in all new homes compared with 2021, in line with the Future Homes Standard.

Our properties feature energy saving features as standard, including triple glazed windows, water saving taps, zoned heating, the latest boilers, efficient light bulbs, and excellent insulation.

All appliances that we fit incorporate the latest energy saving technology, and we work with leading suppliers who put sustainability at the forefront of their design.
