About

Gröner Developments Ltd (GDL) brings together the best of German expertise and British market knowledge to deliver innovative, high-quality, sustainable homes in attractive residential developments.

Innovative

Our projects use leading-edge techniques and technologies to make design and construction processes more efficient, economical, resource-effective and schedule-certain. State of the art technologies are integrated throughout, including:

  • New Digital Planning (DIPLAN) programmes
  • Building Information Modelling (BIM)
  • Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA)
  • Modern Methods of Construction (MMC)

These practices have numerous benefits such as cutting building costs, reducing resource wastage and avoiding impacts of weather on construction. BIM also enables us to track the performance of a given structure throughout its lifetime, providing crucial information for the consistent improvement of our development practices.

High-quality

We build aspirational homes which are affordable without compromising on quality. By continuously improving upon best practices in design and construction, we combine aesthetics and solidity with cost and resource efficiency to give our customers the best value possible. We do this by:

  • Sourcing premium materials for internal and external elements
  • Incorporating Building Automation Systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning control
  • Developing ‘smart homes’ that enhance daily life through Artificial Intelligence
  • Using MMC to build high-quality components for assembly onsite
  • Reducing the whole lifecycle cost and gross-to-net rent leakage of each development

Across our developments, we adopt place making methodologies to ensure our buildings are an integral part of thriving communities. By integrating existing infrastructure, such as public transport links, we ensure accessibility and functionality for our customers.

Sustainable

It’s our belief that innovation and sustainability go hand in hand. From conception to completion and beyond, we unify development goals with environmental values, aiming to:

  • Implement novel methods of enhanced insulation, air-loss prevention and heating
  • Use green materials and energy sources as far as possible
  • Explore cutting-edge solar power and energy recovery systems
  • Repurpose buildings and/or rehabilitate challenging brownfield sites
  • Surpass governmental Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) and Zero-carbon goals

On a wider scale, we also hope to contribute to positive change by aligning our business with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular:

  • Decent Work and Economic Growth: ‘Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all’
  • Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure: ‘Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation’
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities: ‘Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable’
  • Responsible Consumption and Production: ‘Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns’
