About Avant Homes

Avant Homes are the fastest growing housebuilder in the UK, operating in Scotland, the North East of England, Yorkshire and the Midlands and with six offices across the UK.

The company’s vision is to transform the UK housebuilding sector through the constant advancement and innovation of the Avant Homes brand and product, and to provide buyers with increasingly better lifestyles, homes and places to live.

Over the next five years, the firm aims to double its yearly output to 4,000 new homes for sale in the UK. As part of an ambitious growth plan, they are looking to scale up existing operating regions whilst continuing to invest in land and target further geographic expansion.

Avant Homes are committed to putting people at the heart of everything they do - continued personal and professional development of their people goes hand in hand with sustained higher performance and personal job satisfaction.

The company is led by Chief Executive Officer Colin Lewis.
