Building high quality homes
Catalyst is a major developer of new homes. We expect to build more than 7,000 new homes by 2020, housing 21,000 more people across London and the South East. We believe in mixed income, mixed tenure neighbourhoods.
We provide a first class housing management service throughout our communities.
Catalyst is one of the most environmentally friendly housing associations. We are one of only two housing providers in the country to achieve gold in the highly challenging SHIFT sustainability benchmarking scheme.
We are committed to preserving natural resources and increasing the use of renewable energy sources in the construction of our homes, as well as developing sustainable regeneration and asset management practices.
The Greenway, our award winning sustainable development in Hounslow, is in the first wave of buildings designed to meet the highest standards for eco-friendly sustainable homes. It is also the first to meet the mayor of London’s new housing design guidelines.

Private sale developer
Catalyst by Design is our non-charitable subsidiary company that develops homes for private sale. We use the profits to cross-subsidise our charitable work. Catalyst by Design is currently active on sites in Luton, Harrow and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
Within five years, we expect Catalyst by Design to deliver around 300 private sale homes each year, reflecting our commitment to developing mixed income, mixed tenure schemes.
