How an association has developed a leading-edge approach to OSM, rooted in effective partnership working with all stakeholders and end users.
Taking on a former school site considered commercially undevelopable and requiring major engineering and remediation, Accord pioneered a new approach to OSM. The result is 120 new, low carbon homes built to very high standardised, run and managed by local people.
Having struggled to find a genuinely collaborative and learning OSM partner, Beechdale presented Accord with the opportunity to properly pilot its in-house, unique fully integrated team approach to offsite delivery.
In doing this, Accord were able to move away from a transactional process to a partnership approach in which the needs and requirements of external customers, stakeholders and ultimately end users were fully understood from the outset.
Working in partnership with Walsall Council and the HCA, Accord managed the design, manufacture and build of these innovative new homes to completion. The efficient design was based around ‘factory friendly’ house types and utilised Accord’s own off site manufacturing facility, LoCal Homes. This innovative approach gave them the ability to drive up design quality and control cost and time.

Glad to see this response to the vile leaflet and that it's not from the parish council.
