Who we are
Sustainability is at the core of Thameswey, it was a driving force in our inception and it remains a key element of our business in the future. Sustainability isn’t just a box ticking exercise, it’s a fundamental principle that needs thought and attention, and requires a long-term focus. It’s also common-sense; if you wish for a community to grow and prosper, it must be nurtured and cared for, with balance at its heart, and this benefits not just individuals, but the local community and the world we all share.
Built to last
Our goal is to deliver projects at a local level that will contribute to global climate challenges, as well as to ensure our society is equipped to thrive and grow to meet the needs of an ever-changing world, not just for now, but for generations to come.
We were created in order to design and build sustainable communities, where anyone can find a place to call home, where trade can thrive and people can prosper. Our strategy is to consider the community as a whole, from its people, where they live, where they work, how they travel, the energy they need and how they impact the environment they occupy.
What makes us different?
Thameswey is in a unique position to help create and enhance communities that are truly sustainable. Our independence means that we are able to take advantage of the opportunities of a commercial world, but our ownership means that profit is not our primary directive, and our owners value our contribution to the future of our community above our ability to make money. In the final analysis, if our society can be made better for all, there’s a real value to be gained, and one that will last.
Swift action needed to save endangered birds
An urgent rallying cry has gone out to the people of Woking to help stop swifts disappearing from British skies by building nesting boxes. Thameswey is inviting residents to workshops where they can build a nesting box as part of the Swifts in Woking project which aims to reverse the decline of these iconic birds.
