About Octevo

AN ETHICAL AND COMMERCIAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITY

“Our business model has been formulated to address the core procurement and funding barriers faced by Local Authorities and Housing Associations. The Octevo solution eases waiting lists and contributes to reducing housing shortages, by delivering much needed new affordable housing.

Having spent many years in the industry, it became evident that there had not been an ethical and commercial housing opportunity which aligned project funding and fixed income returns with the increased demand for large scale affording housing.

Experiencing and understanding all the elements and interests of the various parties involved in delivering both long-term housing security and assurance for Registered Housing Providers and commercial partners was key.”

Robert Macmaster (Chairman & Founder)

OUR
MODEL

  • Octevo work alongside Councils and Housing Associations to understand their affordable housing needs, develop existing assets or identify new private sector opportunities.
  • Where necessary, Octevo will also manage the negotiation and acquisition of private land holdings to facilitate development and regeneration projects.
  • A Contract Lease allows Octevo to utilise private funding to deliver the required affordable housing.
  • As part of our structured and comprehensive approach we also provide and undertake the funding and management of both the preconstruction and the construction process for each project.

Our team

Octevo has assembled a team of development and construction specialists who are experienced in getting residential developments through planning and design to the point of construction. At that point they then oversee construction including ensuring it stays on budget and to the specification required.
