Catalyst wins Affordable Housing Provider of the Year at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards 2015.

2706062_origThank you to everyone that voted Catalyst as Affordable Housing Provider of the Year. We were up against some tough competition, but ultimately the service we deliver and opportunities we give to first time buyers to enter the housing market far exceeded our competitors.

Not only did we win, we also came highly commended in the categories; Best Urban Regeneration for our work on Portobello Square and Best Show Home for our Waterside development.

Catalyst was recognised for our close partnerships with local authorities across London and the South East. Through these partnerships we have developed initiatives to help families get on the property ladder.

Key to winning this award is Catalyst working as one organisation to not only build homes but to build desirable places to live. Our after sales service, customer care and community initiatives specifically target our residents to ensure that they can enjoy their homes. Through social and financial inclusion initiatives we are able to impact thousands of lives in the areas we work.

Also noted was Catalysts attention to sustainability. Catalyst is one of only six housing providers to achieve gold in the highly challenging Sustainable Homes Index for Tomorrow. Specialist developments, such as the award winning ‘The Greenway’, allow Catalyst to try out new sustainable and eco friendly methods of development.

Over the coming year we look forward to supplying more affordable housing across London and the South East as we; break ground on Havelock in Southall, finish the first phase of Portobello Square and carry on our exciting work at Dee Park, Reading, to name just a few projects.
