Caribbean Housing Limited (CHL) builds medium to large apartment complexes, primarily for first time home owners in the Central area. Customers are middle class by nature with traditional family values. CHL’s objective was to build an affordable housing development while managing costs tightly but yet ensuring that the appeal for the average home owner was there. We spoke with Andre Thomas of CHL to get more insight into the project.
“We wanted Brentwood Estate to go beyond generalised market expectations, by providing additional advantages and giving clients more of everything – Homes with More – that was the thinking. We achieved this by employing a host of quality products from ABS to give us the look we required at the right price that wouldn’t make our housing out of reach for our buyers.
We specifically chose Metpro windows and doors from ABS because of their proven longevity and overall traditional outlook.
When it came to A/C’s, Carrier was a brand that is recognized the world over….so we trusted the experts so to speak and went with an xyz unit for each of the living spaces.
Homes to us are always about curb appeal. It’s what gives a home that extra touch that makes buyers want to seal the deal. We chose Bestcrete pavers because they give that finished look we wanted….and when it came down to the poolside area for the demo unit it was the best choice.
Overall it was cost as well as quality which led us to ABS as our major supplier for the project. The outcome speaks for itself and we were able to successfully manage our budget so that we can get more families into these beautiful homes we’ve created.”
