Why us?



We have a proven record of success in delivering green open spaces that support developers in producing attractive housing developments, while fulfilling environmental and legal requirements.

Our specialist team’s knowledge and strong reputation for transforming neglected or agricultural lands into positive environmental green infrastructure is built on experience and evident in our work with housing developers across the country.

Developers are frequently obliged to create green open spaces when constructing new developments, and as experts in this industry, we have the skills and machinery to implement these projects to your schedule and budget.

Aside from fulfilling project requirements, creating an appealing outdoor space for prospective buyers is proven to encourage quicker and higher value sales. We’ve worked with leading developers to create such spaces, supporting greener communities and creating landscapes that help to ensure new developments stand out to buyers.

Biodiversity Net Gain

With an established environmental review process we ensure existing habitats are enhanced not endangered. We enjoy a strong track record of delivering projects that result in a biodiversity net gain.

Our team regularly work with wildlife charities and environmental agencies on environmental and water engineering projects to create new, and improve existing, habitats for wildlife and plants.

The planting of grasses, trees, and hedgerows are integral to the construction of green infrastructure. With an in-house agronomist and a tradition in the construction of parks, parkland, and cemeteries we can advise on planting schemes or work to plans drawn up by your landscape architects.

See our environmental case studies for more information.

Environmental Resilience

Calling upon our knowledge and experience in water engineering and land drainage we can advise and mitigate the risk of flooding.

For instance, when constructing Longford Park Country Park. Our team ensured that small ponds and channels leading to the Oxford Canal flowed efficiently to thwart potential flooding to housing and provide ongoing, cost-effective, environmental resilience.

Houses on the Longford development have sold out completely, and a continuation of the country park will see White Horse complete the final phase of this green open space project, in which 100% of the houses have been sold before completion.

Encouraging Healthy Lifestyles Within Communities

Proven health benefits in areas with green infrastructure can include reductions in stress, obesity and heart disease-related conditions.

Residents living in healthier areas consequently reduce reliance on the NHS, bringing significant benefits to local authorities and potential home buyers.

With an expert design team, highly skilled operatives and project management team, White Horse Contractors can construct your Green Open Space, Country Park or Green Infrastructure to your specification.
