We’re in Inside Housing's top 50 Biggest Builders list

Biggest Builders 2024

We have been included in the list of the Biggest Builders compiled by leading trade publication Inside Housing.

The Top 50 Biggest Builders list is of housing associations who are building the most homes in the UK.

Placed at number 37 of 50, we delivered 510 homes between 01 April 2023 and 31 March 2024. Last year, we provided 70 homes for social rent, 290 for affordable rent with remainder available under a shared ownership scheme or for open market sale.

​​​​​Across the West Midlands, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire we have delivered bungalows, one- and two-bedroom apartments alongside two- and three-bedroom houses. We have provided new homes in Swindon, Shropshire, South Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and in various locations throughout the West Midlands conurbation.

LoCaL Homes, our award-winning advanced offsite housing manufacturing facility in Walsall have played a crucial role in maintaining our position in the top 50 Biggest Builders. In 2023/24 LoCaL Homes have helped us deliver new homes in Telford, Stourbridge, Daventry and Redditch  with more projects set to complete in the year ahead.

Mark Patchitt, our Director of Development said: “It is important to receive recognition among our peers and stakeholders with inclusion in the Top 50 Biggest Builders list compiled by Inside Housing- our sector’s most prestigious publication. It demonstrates GSA’s continued commitment to address the housing crisis.

“From Walsall to Wiltshire, we have delivered hundreds of new homes of all types and tenures to help cater for a variety of housing need across the communities we serve.

“Although our 2023-28 business strategy, Simpler, Stronger, Better rightly prioritises our existing homes for investment we will still be building new homes across the West Midlands and South West England in the years to come. I would like to thank all the colleagues who have helped deliver this impressive total of completed homes.”

The top 50 Biggest Builders might have completed more than 42,000 homes last financial year, but on site they collectively started only 33,230, down 27% compared to the year before.
