About Our Client

Goram Homes are a Bristol based housing company with community at the heart of their values. They are a wholly ownded subsidiary which was set up by Bristol City Council to build quality homes where they are needed the most.

They work in partnership with the private sector to build sustainable, affordable homes that create communities, respect the environment and contribute to the local economy.

Alongside their development partners, Bristol City Council and local residents, they aim to build homes that transform where and how people live.

As part of a recently approved business plan, Goram Homes now has the go-head to move forward plans to build more than 1,700 new homes – including over 600 affordable properties – on sites across the city.

The plan will provide a major boost for the local economy with £250 million set to be spent on construction of new projects – with a target of 75 per cent of that spend earmarked for local companies.

Goram Homes have already been recognised for their approach to house building. On Friday 12th February at the Bristol Property Awards, Goram Homes won in two categories, Deal and Green initiative, for it’s first development in Lockleaze, Romney House.

Back in October 2020 Architect and TV Presenter George Clarke visited Goram Homes to look at this particular development.
