About Us

Building Better is a National Housing Federation-backed alliance of 30 housing associations and local authorities.
We were set up in 2018 as part of the National Housing Federation’s Greenhouse innovation programme, a ground-breaking scheme that tackled real issues in society with the objective of developing ideas that can be scaled across the country.
Building Better is aggregating demand from members so they can procure high quality, sustainable offsite homes, at the right price, confident in the fact that these homes will meet their customers’ needs.
