Housebuilder Optivo was established in May 2017 following the merger of two housing associations: AmicusHorizon and Viridian. But the history of the company began in 1945 when Joan Bartlett founded Hearth and Home Ltd to support the nation during one of its most difficult times, World War II.
Today Optivo is a homebuilding company headquartered in Croydon. The developer's philosophy is based on the importance of finding the perfect home. Therefore, Optivo offers high-quality new developments for families of all sizes to suit all tastes and budgets. The construction company builds homes in London, the South East and the Midlands. In doing so, the sales and marketing department manages all new housing projects for both fractional ownership and open market sales.
Optivo is one of the largest UK housing providers. It is a member of the G15, a group of the capital's most significant housing associations with over 45,000 house developments in London, the South East and the Midlands. This makes it possible to provide housing for more than 90,000 people. Optivo always puts customers at the centre of its business, striving to meet their every need, create great places to live and improve the quality of life.
