Seddon: A mission to create affordable homes

At the core of our 125-year-old family-owned business, we have a mission to create better affordable homes, as a foundation for people to build better lives. We do this by undertaking domestic refurbishment and retrofit, new build homes and a wide variety of MEP works.

We have continuously supported the initiative to drive innovative work-leading research to support areas that are critical to a national move towards net-zero housing. Through funding opportunities such as the School Green Summit, we have significantly raised the profile of sustainable construction. This translated in our recent commitment to the Friends of Energy House Initiative.

Our involvement in this project allowed us not only to raise the profile of sustainability on an internal basis, but also review and capture our place in new markets such as Retrofit. The Friends of Energy House has opened up a new network to deliver sustainable work and developmental projects such as an IPHD programme in collaboration with the National Trust Association and the University of Salford.
