Builders, developers and investors.

Residential construction

New build and refurbishment projects pose unique challenges requiring expert focus to manage risk, whether that is working in occupied environments across estate regeneration or building new houses. McLaren deliver homes across the spectrum including all types of tenure and high-rise towers.

Residential development

McLaren responds to local needs with tailored residential solutions, creating strong and lasting partnerships in a variety of communities.

We are one of the UK’s leading construction companies and have combined building expertise with our property investment division and a new team of public and private sector lenders to form a unique and agile partnership which can offer a variety of solutions for residential and mixed-use development.

We look beyond simple buildability efficiencies and also think about what we can do as a design developer to collaboratively enhance the project’s eventual value.

Adding value on residential schemes
£3m
Additional development profit delivered at The Otto & Nightingale Lane, Dalston for the London Borough of Hackney. We built additional floors using design optimisation to create space for extra apartments, bringing a further £3m development profit.
£10m
Additional development profit delivered at The Makers, Shoreditch for the London Borough of Hackney through a successful challenge to the planning application and the introduction of five extra floors. We also re-allocated amenity space to the basement to gain extra apartments on the first floor.
8 weeks
Programme gain at Wembley Park for Quintain, speeding up installation on site by re-designing the masonry bracketry and finding other time efficiencies through BRT product development and off-site solutions.

Residential areas of focus

Affordable Homes

McLaren’s track record of delivering affordable homes has given us a keen understanding of how to be successful within the sector. We have established a long-standing supply chain of sub-contractors, forging partnerships to deliver high-quality and durable homes, often within challenging budgets.

Build to Rent (BTR)

Experienced in BTR frameworks, McLaren have extensive expertise in product innovation focusing on long term asset ownership in larger, purpose-designed blocks. For BTR projects, we concentrate on design flexibility with joined-up communal services and base product specifications, whilst creating scope to change superficial finishing over the long term.

High Rise living

Our specialist team have delivered numerous towers and understand how to manage people and materials during a high-rise building project, and how to secure an envelope whilst the frame progresses at height. Expertise includes the complexities of external cladding systems, fire safety and the unique challenges associated with developing multiple apartments floor by floor.
