Social Housing

Rowlinson has earned an enviable reputation for delivering high quality affordable new housing schemes and the refurbishment of existing stock. Our core values of quality, approachability, responsiveness and efficiency have enabled us to collaborate with a range of partners to create long-term positive effects on local communities.

Rowlinson has built lasting relationships with many RSL partners, and working together on creative schemes, we have transformed the lives of thousands of tenants. Working closely with RSL’s and government housing agencies, Rowlinson has been party to a number of mixed tenure developments of outright sale, shared ownership and rented properties.

We aim to achieve the highest marks on client satisfaction, not only from the RSL, but from each tenant we encounter.

For refurbishment schemes, should the client require support, we have a proven efficient and approachable team of tenant liaison officers with vast experience of fast moving, high volume programmes..
