Architects in Housing

  • Comment

Architects in Housing, which champions the value of design in new homes, has established a reputation for spotlighting quality examples of residential construction and planning.

In these times of rapid industry innovation, it is clearly right that consumers receive what they desire most from their new homes, and that every effort should be made within the industry to deliver the product the homebuyer wants.

As a leading materials manufacturer, Hanson Brick sees Architects in Housing as a prime mover in the consolidation of interested parties to move forward with design and construction issues in residential developments. As a material, brick remains the predominant choice in UK housing, making it a necessity for Hanson to be represented on this forward-thinking panel as important issues are debated.

'We consider that our involvement in the manufacture of brick is only part of our obligation to the end user, ' says Brian Garratt, Hanson Brick's marketing manager, 'because in reality we are in the walling business. We sell walls for people to live within in safety, security and comfort.

'Designers look to us to provide the widest possible choice of products while at the same time combining as much innovation as technically possible. Even so, we are still required to deliver a traditional appearance in commercial systems that must meet the speed of modern-day construction techniques.'

Hanson Brick believes Architects in Housing (www.designforhomes.org) will provide the opportunity to work in partnership with other members of the construction industry who share the same goals and ambitions for setting standards of excellence.
