You’ll save on energy bills
The Home Builders Federation (HBF) estimates that homeowners of new build houses can save an average of £555 saved per year on household bills compared to older properties. Heating bills can be as much as £395 cheaper and you’ll spend less on lighting and hot water too.*
Water meters, low-flow taps and dual flush toilets will help you save on water bills so you'll have more cash to spend on the things that matter to you.
Your new community will have character
Each Taylor Wimpey neighbourhood is unique, with its own character and identity. But each one is designed to our rigorous standards. You’ll benefit from well connected streets and public spaces, easy access to transport and, on many sites, local shops, schools and community hubs.
At larger schemes we include different housing styles to add character and often we match our layout and materials to reflect the local landscape and traditions.
Our developments are designed for wellbeing
You can connect with nature
Being near to nature can give our spirits a lift, and recent research shows it has a positive impact on our health. We want to help you get out and enjoy nature, so we’re putting wildlife and green space at the centre of our development planning.
We launched our ‘Home for Nature’ toolkit earlier this year to help us do just that. It’s full of ideas that we’re implementing on our sites from planting wildflower meadows, to integrating hedgerows, trees and ponds, and installing bird boxes and hedgehog pathways.
We were pleased to be Commended in the Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year category at the Housebuilder Awards 2021, run by Housebuilder Magazine, the Home Builders Federation and NHBC.
We were named in the Glassdoor top 50 places to work in the UK for 2020 for the third year running, based on employee feedback.
Investing in the talent of the future
Our paid apprenticeships give our apprentices hands-on development and support across a whole range of skills. We’re proud to have recruited 382 apprentices in 2019 and in total and have over 600 young people completing apprenticeships, learning a trade and building their career with us. By supporting a young person’s career, it makes our future team even stronger.
