Safety Smart teams up with Osco Homes

16th August 2016 Posted in Blogs

Safety Smart are delighted to have partnered up with local firm Osco Homes, a wholly owned subsidiary of Procure Plus Holdings Limited. 

Osco Homes work on the ethos that everyone should be able to afford a home and as such have developed a new, fairer way of developing homes, providing the market at a cost directly related to the build cost as opposed to the market opportunity. Their innovative, production based approach means that high quality housing is delivered faster and at lower cost than traditional methods.

In addition to the cost benefits, the scheme fulfils a valuable role from a CSR perspective. A significant proportion of the off-site work is carried out at Hindley Prison with a view to providing vocational training for young offenders, in turn providing a strong progression route and enabling employability chances upon release. 

Safety Smart’s Director, Anthony Tetlow comments: ‘I am truly impressed by the level of thought that has gone into every single aspect of the build process. The construction methods being used on this project are extremely efficient, yet both safe and environmentally friendly. It is a privilege to be involved with a forward thinking company like Osco, who demonstrate a clear commitment to social value’.
