Challenging the norms with fresh perspectives

Urbanisation is accelerating at a rapid rate. More than four billion people now live in cities – and this is expected to rise to seven billion by 2050. As our cities evolve, so too must our housing.

Families are changing – with the rise of single person households and multi-generational families creating demand for new types of homes. Innovators are turning to new models – like co-living and build-to-rent – to increase supply, improve affordability and enhance the human experience.

People still want comfort, safety and security in their home – they just want more housing choice. We work with our clients – from national house builders and blue-chip residential developers to local authorities, investors and build to rent innovators – to create that choice.

The right decisions at the right time

Technology is reshaping every part of the residential sector. Innovative construction technology, from drones to bricklaying robots, and new processes, like prefabrication and modularisation, are boosting productivity and building quality.

Meanwhile, more than half the world’s population has access to the internet. Digital technology is elevating consumer expectations of service, bringing developers closer to their customers and making homes more responsive and efficient.

Planning, costing, managing and delivering residential construction has never been more complex. But our powerful in-house software boasts the industry’s largest and most dynamic project database. With RLB’s help, our clients make the right decisions at the right time.

Sustainable and commercially successful

Up to 40% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions come from buildings, both during construction and operation. – the residential sector recognises it has a big role to play in tackling climate change. People, whether they are buyers, rental tenants or institutional investors, are increasingly on the hunt for energy efficient and eco-friendly homes. With a long list of green-rated projects behind us, our talented team are adept at delivering climate-friendly residential that is also commercially successful.
