Atkin’s subsidiary EDAROTH has committed to delivering new, sustainable homes, built using the latest modern methods of construction in a partnership with Hyde Group, one of the biggest affordable housing providers in the South East. The agreement marks the start of a new, progressive relationship, with a focus on delivering energy efficient, net zero homes for the future. EDAROTH will deliver homes through the provision of end-to-end development management, design and engineering expertise as well as its latest accredited off-site manufacturing techniques to enable Hyde Group to meet its goal of providing energy efficient affordable housing for its residents. The partnership with EDAROTH also introduces a new way of thinking for social housing in the region with a focus on unlocking under-utilised land and brown field sites, to create truly affordable housing as part of sustainable, inclusive and happy communities.The agreement will also ensure those homes will be built more efficiently, up to 50% more quickly, using pre-manufactured materials produced off-site and delivered, cutting carbon emissions from the construction process. As the built environment contributes around 40% of carbon emissions, the net zero focus of EDAROTH’s delivery method is a key benefit in the partnership. It will ensure energy consumption is greatly reduced compared with traditional housing construction.
