No layers of management - No hierarchy.

Simply ABL Homes.

We are simply ABL Homes.

ABL Homes. The trading name for ABL Structural Projects Ltd.

Established and registered in England in 1978 by Directors, Barry and Linda Foster.

ABL Homes. A family run business under the Managing Director Barry, with Linda as Company Secretary.

Keeping it simple.At ABL we have developed many new homes at the modest end of the market.

By working hard at the planning and design stages, we establish financial security for our developments helping to provide good value opportunities for our buyers.

We also have a retained portfolio of residential properties available to the rented sector.

All our rented properties are professionally managed by experienced letting agents.

What do we do?

We seek to maximise land values by investigating and obtaining planning approvals.

Nevertheless, we have proven to be 'robust' and continue to go forward.

The companies portfolio of rented homes is a substantial and steady income.
