HCD is a leading provider of consultancy services to some of the major providers of residential accommodation across the UK. Our experience extends from major urban regeneration and greenfield developments to schemes for the retirement and care sectors. Whatever the application, we work as an integral member of the delivery team to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for all the building services required. Thanks to our in-depth understanding of the issues faced, we are able to reduce risk and improve cost certainty for our clients.

Future need for housing in the UK is expected to remain high due to the underlying imbalance between supply and demand in the market. In response, the Government is calling for three million new homes to be built by 2020.

Demand will remain particularly strong in the provision of housing for our ageing population. The elderly will account for 2.4 million more households by 2026. To meet this challenge the leading providers of specialist housing, including Festival Care, Shaw Health, Sanctuary, Sunrise Senior Living and Retirement Villages are increasingly relying upon the specialist services provided by HCD.
