As surveyors, we take pride in being part of an industry that plays such a vital role in shaping the future of communities. New Homes Week provides a unique opportunity to reflect on the significance of our work and the positive impact it has on individuals and society as a whole.

At Wilkinson Cowan, we are proud to see that we have over the last 45 years contributed to the delivery of over 30,000 new homes, all the while supporting sustainable development.

New Homes Week celebrates the construction of new homes, acknowledging the importance of meeting the growing demand for housing. As surveyors, our role involves assessing land, analysing site conditions, and ensuring that the construction process adheres to industry standards and regulations while delivering the best value for our clients. Attention to detail is fundamental to ensuring buildings make great homes both now and for generations to come.

One of the principal reasons we take great pride in our work is the opportunity it allows us to contribute to addressing the ongoing housing shortage. In many regions, the demand for homes is continuously rising, and by actively participating in the construction of new affordable homes along with our trusted partners and clients, we play a role in providing individuals and families with a place to call home, which is an extremely rewarding experience.

Whilst we are contributing to building new homes, we are committed to seeing developments that are built with environmental considerations in mind. New homes are more than just structures; they are integral parts of communities. By actively participating in the development of residential areas, particularly where there is a housing shortage and an increasing demand, we feel privileged to contribute to the creation of inclusive neighbourhoods. Well-planned and thoughtfully designed communities not only enhance the quality of life for residents but also contribute to the overall well-being of society.

As ever, the construction industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies and innovative practices emerging regularly. As surveyors, we are excited to be part of an industry that not only embraces change but seeks innovative solutions to challenges. Whether it’s incorporating sustainable building materials or adopting advanced surveying technologies.

As New Homes Week unfolds, it’s a great reminder of the collaborative approach that goes into developing new homes, and communities – and being a part of this process, contributing to the creation of homes that provide shelter, foster community, and support sustainable development. Through our dedication and expertise, we not only shape the physical landscape but also play a crucial role in making new structures that become home.
