Gleeson Homes has moved to larger premises in County Durham following the rapid expansion of their operations in the North East.

The house builder currently has 9 new homes developments across County Durham, Tyneside and Cleveland with a further 5 due to open in the next 6 months.

Ed Alder, Regional Director for Gleeson Homes explains, “Over the past 18 months we have welcomed 8 new people to our office team and we therefore quickly grew out of our previous premises.  Our new office in Chester-le-Street is central to our housebuilding operations which now span from Wallsend to Middlesbrough.”

Gleeson’s new homes developments are part on the on-going regeneration of towns and cities in the north east which have recently seen the demolition of old housing stock and former nursing homes, together with the closure of local factories and businesses.  Along with building new homes for local people, Gleeson helps the local communities in which they build through a Community Matters programme which includes providing jobs & apprenticeships for local people, engaging with local schools & sponsorship of junior football teams.

Ed adds, “We specialise in purchasing brownfield sites on which we build traditional 2, 3 and 4 bedroom semi and detached homes which are priced to suit local people, with a range of schemes available to help buyers get on the property ladder.

We have just opened show homes on three of our developments which have proved really popular with buyers who are amazed at the quality and prices of our new homes.”

“We are always looking for new land opportunities and would urge anyone who might have suitable land for sale to get in touch”.

Gleeson’s Sales Office on developments across the North East are open Thursday to Monday 10am to 5pm.  For more information visit
