Affordable housing partnership brings substantial inward investment to Sussex
Award-winning Sussex-based housing company, Goscombe, has partnered with OSCO Homes from Manchester to bring a new modular manufacturing hub to Sussex.
Together, they will build and operate a production facility with embedded skills training academy to deliver much needed new social and affordable homes to the Sussex region.
Following an extensive market search, of over 150 UK and European manufacturers using Modern Methods of Construction, Goscombe selected OSCO Homes because of their genuine commitment to social impact, professional rigour, and the quality of their homes.
OSCO Homes has earned a well-deserved reputation for excellence, innovation and efficiency within the house building sector. They utilise innovative technology and the latest engineering solutions to create off-site homes that combine high quality and efficiency. This inward investment of £10m into Sussex will create 300 local jobs, an apprenticeship academy, academic opportunities, significant grassroots local charity investment, and will build up to a production capacity of 500 homes every year.
This partnership will create over £100m of economic and social value, delivering tangible social impact for the benefit of Sussex people and their communities.
“Goscombe is not only bringing innovative housing expertise into the heart of Sussex, but as a profit with purpose organization, we will do business differently by placing social value at the very core of our model. When the scale of our social impact is combined with the affordability of our homes, it is clear we have a powerful economic model which is hugely significant for local authorities.”
