United House will continue as a stand-alone developer

United House’s contracting business has reached a deal to merge with Bullock Construction, creating a £300m combined contracting business.

The combined firm will trade as United Living Group Limited, with the deal expected to complete in April 2015.

Bullock’s geographical reach covers the North, Midlands, Wales and the East while United House’s contracting business focuses mainly on London.

The remaining part of the former United House Group, United House Developments, will remain independent and will focus on major mixed-use regeneration schemes and “niche speculative residential development”.

United House Developments has a £1bn pipeline of 2,000 homes across 12 schemes.

In a statement United House Developments said it will continue to work with United House Living on “existing projects”.

Rick de Blaby and Jeffrey Adams continue as chief executive and chairman respectively of United House Developments.

Former United House group director Paul Nicholls will also join the United House Developments board.

Adams said: “The main focus for United House Developments will now be on significant growth to capitalise on the demand for new homes in the capital.”
