Built on the strong principles of Henry Smith, we're committed to growing sustainable communities, rather than just buildings. We design and build energy efficient and low carbon footprint homes. From choosing a site to getting our shovels dirty, we are conscious to make a lasting positive impact on the environment and local community.
We're hugely passionate about giving back to the community, that's why our team fundraise for various charities.
We are The Wickers - a charity supporting six to eighteen-year olds in Hackney. We aim to reduce gang related crime in East London by providing positive role models, learning opportunities, recreational activities and educational workshops. Our ambition is to enhance young people’s sense of self-worth and demonstrate they can lead a more meaningful life.
We offer a range of classes and workshops from our community hub in Hackney Wick. To date, we’ve held workshops on the dangers of gang crime, hosted inspirational speakers, as well as running graphic design and music production classes. We aim to host any classes that help young people to achieve their own individual learning plans.
